So here's the situation:

  • My flat in Dunedin is about 500m from the Telecom ADSL2+ exchange.
  • We don't know if we want/need a phone plan. But afaik Telecom doesn't have nakedDsl.
  • We are looking to pay anywhere from $50-$100 a month.
  • Only need it for 10 months.
  • We have been looking at total home, but it's a 12 month contract with a $150 early termination fee.
So ideas people!

It doesn't have to be Telecom.

Orcon have no contract but only provide naked dsl in exchanges where they have their own equipment. So far only Auckland does and Wellington is being rolled out soon.

Fossie: ...So ideas people!

I think Snap would be a good option for you to consider:

-  10GB of Naked DSL for $69.95 per month.

-  Either pay $99 connection fee and no disconnection fee for less than 12 months, or vice-versa

-  ADSL2+ data rates are definitely supported for all enabled exchanges

Details here:

We will probably be disconnecting in the next 2-3 months when our house is sold.  But the $99 fee is the best I could find except for Orcon who have no fee, but would be charging us more for our monthly sub.

Performance and Service from Snap has been exemplary.
