freitasm: 
After all, this information could lead some non-technical consumer to decide on a product or another just based on your "opinion".

To be fair I have to say when I first read your post I thought "spam". But since you were clear from the start that this was your own project then I let it follow its course. A lot of people post here "I just found out about this page" when in fact they are the authors/owners. 




Basically the page is just 'content' - it doesnt sell anything, doesnt make anything, and not intended to.
No, it wasnt posted just to bring visitors - obviously I am not bothered about that - but since I DO get visitors (or did get tons before the site moved) then it was a good time to review wether to have it at all.No point it being there if the info is WAY out of wack... which it turns out, it isnt that bad.

Your point about non technical visitors taking it as gospel is an extremely fair point and I will take care to state more clearly that it is not gospel. There are a few dumb people out there.

The ordering is really straight price based. At the end of it you get what you pay for I suppose.

semi reasonable DLink Router

- semi reasonable??????

- You talk about Mobile Broadband, but you don't talk about vodafone's service or any other type of broadband? Wireless? Satellite? etc etc



Please make effort to read the multiple times where I said I do not deal with Wireless and satellite etc.

D-Link - Yes 'semi reasonable' ... Maybe I should clarify that with ideed probably the best router given out by NZ ISP's - but indeed not the best, and has the firware hacked so it doesnt like being on other ISP's. Some features have also been removed from the devices.  Oh no, hang on - it is not 'given out' it is charged for at full price too.

The 'semi reasonable' statement on the site is not an error... so can't be pointed out as such. It simply does not agree with your specific opinion.

LennonNZ:
Is this Microsoft??!! - Look at thier logo because it is strikingly similar to Microsofts.

nothing to do with them.. completely different


Ha ha no sh** sherlock. All it was , was a comment that their logo is a stiking take off of MS. I am not dumb :)

LennonNZ: They are very quick to disconnect you if you Direct debit is an hour late

- DD are taken from provider from customer.. so cannot be late unless you are talking about an AP which is customer pushed to provider. and even so.. you expect a company to supply service if you don't pay for it?


The point is - this DOES happen - DD doesnt run perfect ALL the time. The fact is, MOST give a bit of grace for bank delays - eg bank holidays and system failures - not just immediate SLAM / OFF then display for all to see in the browser window.

Again - this is not an erronious entry.


LennonNZ:
KOL have fallen totally subject to ORON and are 'currently reviewing broadband plans'

- I don't know what exactly you are trying to say via this.. and you mean Orcon not ORON


Ok, I missed a 'C'.... but you was intelligent enough to figure out it was supposed to say orCon especially given the context.
And YES, when looking to upate prices the supplier page straight up announced on the suppliers site that they wer generating new prices with ORCON.


LennonNZ:
arghh. I give up noting all your mistakes...  tooo many.. please get your facts right....



I think I have demonstrated the error in this comment above.

Regardless of the not so polite way you have put your comments accross, I still have taken the way you have incorrectly interpreted the information and used it in a positive manner to clarify some points on the web page.

Thanks

hmm maybe it's just my sleepy face but it seems there are mistakes/inaccuracies in almost every ISP you have listed!
in particular Maxnet Slingshot Vodafone ... i didnt cross check the rest bcoz these were all incorrect when compared with their respective websites ... ok better back off now in case it was indeed my non functional brain (this was meant to be constructive ... hmm)

ok, I will just say 


.... YES

and 

Sealed



Any how, ... just waiting for google to let it die - cant do any other than that really.


Someone here mentioned 'speed of the site'I am VERY pleased to say that the old host with account held for less than 30 days has been given the BOOT - and the site runs MUCH MUCH mooooooooooooooooooouch faster - yaye. 




And in other comments... ' are you going to make it, you know, more 'Web 2.0'Ok, in fact it worked out much better for us to note that advice / suggestion .... and a Custom Wordpress Blog is now active.I migrated most 'info' pages - but not the ISP ones

As for 'we won't even mention the colour scheme' ..... 
No, sorry, WE and a lot like it - thus stays.
Thanks for the input
by the way - LOVE the avatar Joker97
