The big players are:

- Telecom
- Vodafone
- Callplus/Slingshot/Flip
- Orcon
- Snap
- Xnet
- Maxnet
- Actrix
- BigPipe
- Compas Communications
- ICONZ
- Woosh
- World Net

...in no particular order.  There are many I have probably missed.  Also a lot of smaller players too.

Yup!


If NGW is a JV between HD and someone else, the someone else is probably Fastcom given their response to my ticket yesterday.

Their prices are so sharp (100/50 for the price others charge for 30/10?) I wonder how they do it.

Deliberately running at cost/at a loss for some reason?  Maybe trying to build a customer base?

Interesting to see HD getting into the race to the bottom...

Wow.
Cheaper than my Vodafone broadband cheap.

Edit: I read a little more into it. Works out to be the same.

Memories of 2011, most of the GP threads were quarantined and no longer visible

Let's just say we have no wish to assist people who abuse others on public forums, then call in the lawyers to mop up afterwards.

Which is why anything to do with HD is going to struggle to survive on these forums.

Maybe Ben has matured in the years since, I don't know..

Other Information > Traffic management
We may use traffic prioritisation policies at any time to improve performance for the majority of users on the network...

Other Information > Fair use
As part of our Terms And Conditions, Unlimited Internet has a fair use policy designed to stop a small proportion of users unfairly burdening the network for most other users through what we would consider 'extreme' usage. In these rare cases, we will temporarily slow the connections of the extreme users to ensure overall network stability.

Fair use policys protect the ISP when people do hammer them..


At their pricepoint, i could see this being even more important.

I would love to use this new ISP but unfortunately I (along with the rest of NZ) are unable to comply with their terms and conditions.

Their condition is "The Customer agrees they will not: (b) Violate the law of any foreign state or in particular the laws of the country in which the Customer resides."

Most ISP's do the same to some point.  Just depends how "slow" they make the offenders connection....  ;)

Wasn't HD the company that launched DSL plans then kept changing the price for the next few months? I know there was a bunch of controversy on GP when that happened, but I can't remember for sure if it was an HD reseller or HD themselves.
