I know at the moment a lot of people are unhappy with woosh because of their useless treatment to unlimited customers, but I am wondering if anyone is on their 10gig cap plan and would be able to help me out, I'm just wondering what it's like in general and if it's worth getting as with the student cards I can get a discount with woosh :)

Thanks for your help....

Oh and before any moderators tell me off... I tried to find a recent mention of this plan, but I couldn't find anything but stuff on the unlimited one so yeah.... recent info is the best info

The issue for me with the 10gig plan is the upload speed. Being a hardcore gamer everybit of speed I can get both ways is a bonus.
I'm on the 20gig and have no issues at all.

Don't worry, it would be considered a real low blow if we did that.... \/

peebles - I briefly switched to the 10g plan in order to get back decent download speed while I was changing ISP. No problem with the provision of that service itself, download speed was good, upload acceptable. I just couldn't stand staying with the company who will change my plan/provision of my plan without consultation.

I am on the 10G plan. I went from the Orbit because of slow speeds. It is ok but would suggest checking Xnet as there is no cancellation charge and no $10.00 toll charge. Woosh will not waive this charge although I only have 1 month left in my contract. I tried this morning. With their current status people leaving in management and asking shareholders for more money according to the newspapers it makes me uneasy. The decision is yours. I know what I will be doing.
