I am with Xtra, and I have never really been a fan of their website. I find it a pain to navigate, and log into.

I miss the giant picture that used to be their website back in dialup days...

At $4.95 a minute that picture must have earnt plenty!

Too much of Telecom's website seems to change leaving no trace of the info that you knew that you'd seen once.

Of the ones I've seen, I'd have to say Xnet. It's just so quick and easy compared to the rest (and doesn't look half bad either).

Orcon's looks nice enough, but it's hell to navigate.
Slingshot's doesn't look nice, broke once a day for the first 5 days I was a customer, and uses (instant fail anyway).
Telecom, Vodafone and Telstra all have the same problems as Orcon: too clumsy to navigate.
