So anybody read the article on the NZ herald site that mentioned Supra Naked DSL?

Anybody have any experience with them?

10GB the biggest plan? How much for a 30GB NDSL Plan?

The deal doesnt look that bad, only downsides I can see is the $99 connection fee if you dont want a contract and the $2.50 a GB. I dont really want to get stuck into some contract again and it should be $1 a GB.

Also if you went for the $9.95 a month VoIP option what hardware is supported, what services come with the line, (call waiting/voice mail etc). I also couldnt see anything about toll rates.

Is it free local calling?
Does the data for the VoIP count towards your data useage?


Also where has this company come from, have they just started operating in NZ?

mcraenz: Plans with larger data caps should be available shortly.

Lurch: Thanks for your feedback.

At the moment we cannot offer this open term without some sort of connection fee. Although if you signed up on the 12 month term and cancelled in (for example) 6 months it would only cost you $99 anyway.

We are currently looking at the excess data charge so this may be reduced shortly. We are also looking at local (and possibly national) traffic not counting towards cap.

With the VoIP, any SIP compatible hardware should work (although we may not be able to fully provide support for it). Call Waiting, Caller ID and Voicemail are included at the moment. In the new year you will have access to more features such as Call Forwarding and Conferencing, which will be able to be configured via our website.

Free local calling for your area and we will have some calling specials that should be available in the new year.

Supra has been operating since 2002.

Have a look at the NZ Connections wiki for more naked DSL suppliers, we currently have 4 but will be adding more as we find them/they are announced...

Xnet, if you were to go with their plan when it is ready, charges only $1 per GB (the cheapest data available), only charges you for what you use (unused quota not charged), and as its Gb by GB, you could have a quota as large as you like, where as all the other naked DSL plans available to date only go up to a maximum of a 10GB quota.

Also Xnet (WorldxChange) has no contract....but we have fantastic comparison tables for you to view every plan available and make your own choice.

"where as all the other naked DSL plans available to date only go up to a maximum of a 10GB quota."

On a side note, you can use as much as you would like with either of our plans so your not restricted to the amount of data included in your plan.

At $2.60 a GB....

I am speaking of the advertised packages...the data included is generally cheaper as part of the package as opposed to puchasing data outside ones quota.

Good luck on the wirless spectrum auction...
