I'm looking for a new ISP I'm currently with 2degrees and while day has been good I think it's time for a change what's so many providers out there I'm not sure who to go with I want a provider that is fast preferably the fastest in New Zealand doesn't throttle connections is Unlimited and is reasonably priced with good customer service I was looking at myrepublic or Voyager what is everyone thoughts on this. I also would like to know what v lan tagging is and what it does and what the other thi g us that starts with c something to do with everyone shareing the same ip address. What are people's thoughts on this I appreciate anyone replying and greatly appreciate it

You only need to do a quick search on MyRepublic here to give you enough reasons not to go with them.

 

Now lets give you the main reason - the reason why they're the "Fastest ISP" according to speedtest.net. Last year, MyRepublic gave EVERYONE on UFB Gigabit for a limited time knowing full well they'll start testing their new found speed, so customers started testing and this bumped MyRepublic's average up. MyRepublic then won the "Fastest ISP" award from Ookla and removed all traces of this promotion from their website and social networks.

 

If that isn't a shady practice I don't know what is.

 

In regards with your ISP why are you switching from 2degrees? You're currently with one of the best providers for both network capability and support. Just stay put with them as you're seriously not going to really get any better.

Why do you want to change?  2deg is currently as good as it gets.

 

Any change will be sideways (Voyager) or backwards (MyRepublic - avoid!).

 

[Disclosure - I have no links with any ISP, and am currently a very happy 2deg customer on gigabit fibre.]

What are you looking for that's "better" specifically? Cost? Speed? Support?

Give 2degrees a call. If you've been with them for quite a while I am sure they'll do something for you to sweeten up the offer and keep you as a customer.
