Quick question for one of the Spark peeps.. From a purely Handover/Network/CDN/Performance point of view, is there any difference between the three, or is it actually all the same BNGs, handovers, backhaul, transit, CDNs etc? 


I've used all three RSPs over the last few years, but never for the same service..

They're all on the same Spark core now. Nothing different apart from billing and support essentially.

Thanks! Figured Spark and Bigpipe were given comments on here, just wasn't sure about Skinny who I did use a year ago for a few months while I waited for UFB to become available in my area.


The Skinny 1gig plan seems like fairly good value, considering I'm currently paying $95 for 100/20 on Spark.
