If price is important to you..... 

1)  Try your best to stay on your current Woosh Unlimited Plan!  Why?  Say, you switch to Xnet....  It''ll cost $34 (equivalent advertised plan speeds) + $70 (for 70gb data) = $104......

However, if price isn't important, and customer service definitely comes first, yeah, Xnet > Actrix > Slingshot would be my choice...

Thank you jessey, But Woosh did stop with their unlimited plans unfortunately. If I want to stick with woosh it will cost me a lot.

Thanks all for your information.
So 2 weeks ago I decided to go voor Xnet/worldexchange.
I must really say it all did go very smootly and nice people.

But.....

The speed. It never has been so slow als the last 2 weeks. I have tested on different times with a speed from 107kbps down and 277kbps up.

This is really slow. Does somebody know why there is so big difference with woosh. Could it be that xnet has slower lines ?


Thanks

Something is very wrong with your line or modem I would say.  Xnet and Woosh (wired) both use the same Telecom lines, exchange equipment and backhaul, so there should be no difference.

I would suggest giving the Xnet Helpdesk a call:  0800 14 9638

Or you can e-mail:  help@xnet.co.nz

When your fault has been fixed, I would be interested to hear what the problem was, so please post the result back here.

What download speeds are you getting now? What is your line speed showing in the modem's ADSL status? Dont know if Xnet have interleaving off but check that its on (should always be interleaved for rural connections...), also in the status page. That would be one possible explanation for why an ISP change could make slow speeds like that.




Time to find a new industry!
