Hi Everyone


Currently I'm paying $130/month for unlimited Gigabit UFB at our office (with BigPipe). I'd be willing to pay a bit more for better support (our connection is down right now and Bigpipe isn't getting back on email) and better international bandwidth (we typically see ~80-100bit to US sites).  We probably aren't going to want to pay for a true dedicated connection with SLAs etc, but we can go to a bit more than what we have right now.


Spark's Gigabit business connection seems to be $150/month, Voyager is $180/month - can anyone comment on what the support & international bandwidth on those is like? Is there other providers I should be looking at?

I can't comment on the outage, but to be blunt you won't see better throughput on a Spark connection than on Bigpipe. In saying that, I highly doubt (ok, I know) that the limitation on your speed won't be related to Bigpipe/Spark.


In your position, unless you're prepared to pay for a business connection, I'd engage a 3rd party consultant to setup a pair of connections for you, using at least 2 residential grade connections (like UFB from Spark and Wireless BB from VF for example - or vice versa)... There will be complications if you NEED to host stuff, and there are several ways to set it up.


Cheers - N
