Really your pick of Roku channel that doesn't cache content closer to home. TWiT.tv is an example I often get stutterring even with lower quality feeds.

Hi baboon,

I have been with Full Flavour for quite a while now.

 

I had my share of issues and frustrations initially.

 

I eventually met up with Jesse over a beer and chatted about his side and mine.

 

I can say that the service delivery at FF has taken a giant leap. They have set up further systems to make contact easier and faster. Their position in Durham Street is an advantage also (great coffee too).

 

I have just signed up a third connection with them (1GB). I have put the past behind as every step of this new connection setup has gone very well.

 

So my recommendation to you is Full Flavour.

I'm sticking with FF for now, as they remain the best deal for me. I find it amazing that Trustpower fails to provide a comparable fibre plan. Oh well.

Like I always say you get what you pay for. If you go to an ISP that is cheaper (with the exception of BigPipe) you'll notice the ways they cut cost.

It annoys me the amount of customers that go for an ISP that is cheap, then complain they're on CG-NAT or getting crappy international bandwidth.

Voyager (a decent provider) offer 100/20 UFB (naked) for $89/mo with a 24mo term or $99/mo if you need a router too from them. Or Spark and 2degrees offer similar plans. If you're not having issues with your provider then there isn't any point in changing.

Hey, I pay slightly more for my electricity to be with Trustpower for the great service, and community support. It's just that their fibre plans are considerably more expensive for what you get. Not just a little more :-)

Voyager offer the 100/20 UFB plan for $69 a month, unlimited data. Cannot fault them on their service at all.

I'm on the 100/20 UFB plan with Voyager in Tauranga and don't have any complaints.
