Hi guys

I am considering moving to Kiwilink naked broadband, and I live in Wellington.
Has anyone any useful comments about these guys performance?

They tell me they have been around 10 years.

10 Years??

Checking on the companies office kiwilink has changed its company name at least 5 times...

Kiwilink Internet Services Limited (2006)
Kiwilink 2006 Limited
Kiwilink Internet Services (2004) Limited
K L S Limited
The Big Game Company (2006) Limited

Unless they are completely unrelated companies...

The Company Kiwilink Internet Services Limited (www.kiwilink.co.nz) has only been running since 2006

Thanks
Craig

It looks a little strange, but their about page basically says that they have been in the industry for 10 years and a whole lot more.

Apparently the company changed hands a lot, the current owners got it last october.
Shop around and look at the alternatives, consider snap, slingshot and xnet too for naked DSL.

Also make sure you are getting naked DSL for the right reason, ie you dont need a reliable telephone sharing the line. If you are planning to replace your phone with VoIP then keep a spare mobile battery on the charger for those times when the ADSL has problems, your router goes flakey, or you need to make a call during a power cut.

Or get a UPS and plug your computer AND your router into it :D

It's always important to read the fine print.
