Just seen these guys pop up https://terribletalk.org.nz/ while I was doing a search for a new ISP.


Honestly after reading this I was left somewhat confused about what they were offering and trying to do, any thoughts?

They've been around for quite a while. Marketing experts, they've got to make a profit somehow to keep running the business however would avoid because they sound terrible.

Thanks for the reply tbh i wouldn't even consider them just on the fact i had never heard of them till today. And the fact they seem to be marketing their product as some sort of guilt free internet for the friends of the earth.

Thanks Michael Murphy looks like Vdsl is available at our address on Bigpipe. So cant say it isn't damn tempting to finally give the old ISP the flick after many months of dramas.

Have you had to pay for your internet since the referrals program started?
