Out of the loop in regard to fixed line broadband these days. A friend has asked for a recommendation. Anyone to avoid? Anyone that stands out in a good way?

Avoid: Unlimited Internet. They're not really unlimited as per the above comment.

 

BigPipe are the best pipe for unlimited, no contracts etc. They're also very active around here on @BigpipeNZ. Also, you can get $20.00 off with the link in my signature.

Avoid Slingshot too. While clearly not in the league of horrible that Unlimited Internet is, they are rotten bad. For me, easily the second worst of the bunch.

 

The evidence can be witnessed throughout the Slingshot forum on this very website.

 

Edit: Bigpipe were a fantastic company while I was with them and Spark is turning out to be reliable. So I'd recommend both.

Slingshot does not generally do no contract, Flip does.

Spark if you need a phoneline, Bigpipe if you only want naked.





Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

 

Thinking about signing up to BigPipe? Get $20 credit with my referral link.
