LOL Im pretty sure he did too...

Depending on your location, there are various types of bradband* access that could be suitable.

* 'bradband' - Looks alright on the surface, but generally has trouble "performing", according to the general populace.

I'm tossing up between xnet and slingshot at the moment. I've heard worrying things about xnet speed issues and remarkably little overall about slingshot. I'm pretty close to central Chch and have (previous to Woosh speed issues) had no trouble getting 3000-4000kbps.

Any advice anyone can give me?

Xnet and Slingshot are my ISPs of choice.
The deciding factor is data.
If you dont put through much data, then xnet is the way to go with the better customer service.
If you use huge amounts of data, then slingshot is the way to go. Generally cheaper when going over 30+gb /mo but lacking customer service - most high data users would probably be more geeky and not be too reliant on customer service.

An exsample of the price difference (with tolls)

FS/FS  
56gb $89.95    Slingshot
50gb $101.15  Xnet

FS/128
6gb $39.95  Slingshot
6gb $39.95  Xnet

I'd suggest Xnet most certain even at the higher price!

Slingshot does not throttle p2p ... I've worked with companys that have and it never goes well ...
