thecatsgoolies: Friends don't let friends join Trust power

 

Their power prices were so bad when I looked at it, would undo any saving of the first year of internet if I moved both to them.

I would avoid them on principle after their door-knocking salesperson was super aggressive, told me things that weren't correct, and then implied that I was not very bright because I preferred to stay with my current provider.

Okay, I'm hearing bad things about Trustpower and it's interactions with customers, but is anyone here a customer right now or recently, and can you advise as to their UFB speed and reliability, please? :-) Not that I don't care about customer service. I simply don't care enough about it if everything else works okay, to pay considerably more for UFB. Were the price difference I'm facing more marginal, then customer service might be the deciding factor.

Have you considered Voyager? $69/month on a 24 month contract, provided you already have a router.

I switched from Trustpower to Flick Electric - $80/mo saving in power. I now pay vastly under this for broadband at 200/200Mbit (when I say vastly I mean often my bills come out at $20-40/mo due to referrals) therefore I get free broadband by moving to Flick Electric.

 

Trustpower is bloody expensive and their broadband product isn't even good. I'm not going to plug who I recommend here however FF is vastly better than Trustpower Broadband.

Well, now I've gone off Trustpower for fibre a bit, I'm looking at switching power companies too, once I get my TECT cheque in November. What made you choose Flick, if I may ask? They certainly seem cheaper than Trustpower, but not necessarily the absolute cheapest on the PowerSwitch site.

myfullflavour: I'm bias, but I think while the regional ISPs aren't going to be making their owners millions of dollars every year, they'll continue to be profitable as the majority of the bottom line comes from providing great service to local businesses, that isn't easily available from larger telcos.

 

 

 

RSP's are wholesalers, pure and simple. That comes down to support and bandwidth provided to the users. If you provide enough bandwidth, then all is good, but who does this consistently?
