It seems that there are no providers that I've seen thus far, that provide any of the configurations I'm looking for.

I vaguely remember seeing I think Snap, or vodafone back in day providing 100/50 options- or it could just be my memory fading... but does anyone know of a provider that provides any of these options?

Voyager offer 100/50, 100/100 but the CIR's are different. Also depends on your area.

CIR's??
According to their website, they only provide 100/20 :(




Behodar: Mynxnet offers 100/50 but not 100/100.


Thanks, I'll take a nosey - never heard of them before.

As I said it would depend where you are as to what Chorus and therefore any provider is able to offer you. If you want to PM me your address I can find out.

MyRepublic do 100/50 on a residential plan -- it's the "Gamer" option, and it's what I'm on.

lNomNoml: Orcon


Weirdly, Orcon's online portal only allows you to select the 100/50 plan if you are getting a home line- if I try and select naked, it only allows 100/20

Might want to contact them about that, I had to pay $15 extra for 100/50.

My dealings with it's owner in the past would keep me well away from this company. Very shady.

I have 100/50 with Trustpower on my home connection, there doesn't appear to be 100/100 option.

100/50 is an older Chorus wholesale product compared to the 100/20 and 200/20. And supposedly the wholesale cost on 200/20 is cheaper than 100/50.


If you need more than 50mbit upload, just get a 200/200 plan. You can easily modify a ethernet cable. Or run the connection through a 10/100 switch to restrict it to 100/100. If you have a use case where you need exactly 100/100.

I would gladly have 200/200, but I don't want the cost, which is where I thought a 100/50 or 100/100 connection would be best suited. 

I'll take a nosey at the providers mentioned above and see where I get to. I wish Bigpipe would offer connections of those speed configurations, because I'm happy with them.
