I'm considering using ISP WASP www.waspnet.co.nz due to their high data cap plans. Anyone had any experience with them? Good...bad...indifferent?

How high do you want your data cap to be? Not trying to talk down wasp, but you should checkout NZ Connections to see how their pricing structure compares to the other players.

Looks like they have been around for awhile (reading their about us/history), give them a shot and report back how the service is,  I would guess they are just on-selling Telecom or Telsra wholesale bandwidth though (which is not neccesarily bad at all).

That was my impresion too. Experience has shown me that resellers like this are often (but not always!) better to deal with than the wholesaler (Telecom or Telstra). Easier to get a friendly ear to resolve problems etc.

As the previous poster (Nate) suggested, NZ Connections is a great resource for comparisons, which is where I found WASP. If I decide to go with them I'll certainly report back here. Good, bad or otherwise.

First things first, I need to get to NZ  :)

Thanks for the input.

Are you in Hawkes Bay?

Basically Wasp used to be Internet Hawkes Bay - and i think they were the only business that didnt want to sell their land when The Warehouse wanted to take over and expand their store to cover half the block.

Wasp have been around for a while and they are local so you do get very good support.
They run a wireless network around napier / hastings and were one of the providers that had cheaper broadband over the wireless in the early days of telecom dsl.

They are also the backbone wireless network to SafeNZ who we use for a few of our clients for their inter-city wan's around hawkes bay. Apart from a few setup issues we had with their wholesale provisioning to safenz when we set up these clients, they have been pretty good. Very little down time.
