Hi,

I'm moving to Wellington in a few weeks for 6 months and need to sort out an Internet conenction.

I figured I'd go wireless since I need a connection as soon as I get there and there'd be no waiting round getting a phone line installed and then waiting for dsl to be connected etc.

Is Woosh the only option? And does anyone know if you can you sign up for less than 12 months?

Thanks

Gasp are far superior. I don't know anybody using them at present so can't comment on network performance but have heard good things about them in the past.

Thanks. Checked out their website and only saw 256K advertised, too slow!

If you want wireless with better performance than that you'll have to pay the big $$$ or you could always look at Vodafone or Telecom.

256k is faster than you'll get with Woosh most of the time! :-)
