Hi all,

Moving to a place with fibre for the first time, have anecdotal evidence from mates places that all telcos are not equal when it comes to fibre speed.

Maybe some are traffic shaping or throttling at peak times ?

Any recommendations for 1gb/sec down with a static IP in Whangarei?

Thanks
Mac

2degrees fibre broadband is fast, well routed, with good customer service on the rare occasions you need it. They might (or might not) cost a touch more than some other providers, but if they do it's worth it IMHO.

Not sure if 2G are doing the 75$ with mobile + $10 p/m for static IP

 

otherwise voyager is $99 p/m and $15 one off for a static

 

 

 

Be Aware Whangarei is a Northpower area and not all RSPs have handovers with them

^ Should've added I live in Northland and deal with RSP's/customers regularly.   Iirc Spark's Unplan costs $65 p/m up to 60GB, $75 fup to 80Gb - 120GB,  then $85 over 120GB.  Spark's support is generally excellent,  2Dg not bad support but Spark offer better broadband plans inmho.   Vodafone avoid ofc.. 

 

 

 

Issues with Fibre speed can often be atributed to botched installations. Yesteday I went to a house where the Northpower installer had put the Spark router on a shelf inside a closet , which was inside the garage.

 

I still haven't found the ONT the client insists it's in the cieling. If true NP will be returning to that premises.
