Please can we stop with these obscure "anyone use this ISP" threads? Internet is cheap so my recommendation is not to pick an ISP that claims to be the cheapest and instead, treat it like an essential service in your home.


Voyager or BigPipe if you're wanting a "cheap" ISP with good speeds and support and a free path to upgrade to UFB in the future.

I agree. Fibre is a consumable. It just works. Like a toaster. If you want more toast, better quality toast and hardware, better service, and so on, you line up all these boxes, including price and pull the trigger.

Speed, Reliability and cost.


You can't get all 3 in a single provider.



This reminds me of a sign that hung on the wall of my chosen mechanic for many years:


Please choose one of the following:


A good cheap job, but it won't be quick.


A good quick job, but it won't be cheap.


A quick cheap job, but it won't be good.
