I'm looking at getting a Naked DSL connection and these plans from Supra (http://www.supra.net.nz/services/nakeddsl/) look quite reasonable in terms of value for money, plus they have a 24/7 support number. I think the 15GB or 20GB would suit us perfectly in our household.

Does anyone have Supra as their ISP, or as their NDSL ISP? What has your experience been like?

The price looks good until you include a VOIP number for an extra $9.95 a month. I've been looking at Xnet Fusion which would workout around $89.95 with around 20GB of data plus you get the VOIP line.

Although I may stay with a POTS line and go with snap net $91.95 with 20GB (includes the cost for the phone). A shame I dont live in CHCH or Wellington it would be $85.95 :(

Of course the plus side with Xnet no contract :)

We wouldn't get a VOIP number - would have absolutely no need for it.

I was a bit concerned about Xnet after reading that topic on them about the international bandwith. I guess the flipside of that though is if I did experience the same thing as other people have posted then it wouldn't be a problem to change as there's no contract involved.

Have been looking at the speed issues that they have been having too... although havent heard anything about Supra, or snap... snap also have the $89.95 20gb naked dsl. Hard to make a change, leaving the devil you know....

Might just make the plunge and go xnet but not really going to make the change for atleast another 6 months.
