Since Snap is cancelling its Night Owl plan im in the market for a new ISP and ive narrowed it down to two

I usually go through 70-100gig a month

Maxnet PureDSL (Naked) 100gig/month for $158
WorldNet Urban NakedDSL $65 + 100gig data so $165

can anyone share their experiences with these isps? how are their speeds during peak time? good support?

World-Net were rubbish when I used them a few years back. Very poor speeds and even worse support.

Can I ask why you don't swap to another Snap plan?

I'm interested as you seem to be the second person hunting for a new ISP because this Night Owl one has been discontinued.

Well I can confirm that speeds on Maxnet are great, GZ user 'smac' just changed over and he's also getting full line speed to RS.

I'm at work atm so these below are pulled from another thread i posted a few weeks ago, but speeds are the same as always

Bog standard FS/FS connection.

snap still has the best peak performance and its only $130 a month for a 100g it seems that you are with the best isp what s that saying something about noses and faces

Common sense is not as common as you think.
