Hello.
I'm after options for broadband near Massey Campus w/o landline (corner of Taranaki St and Webb St). I know a few people who are currently on Woosh but complain the speed.
I'm also in and out of Wellington a lot - spending my uni holidays back in Rotorua, so would prefer something that wasn't fixed to something like 12 months because I'll be out of Wellington for almost 50% of that.
I don't know exactly how data I'll use (as in Rotorua we have 90GB shared) but I'm guessing around 10-20 gigs.

TCL cable would probably be the best option..The only issue may be that you can't be provisioned depending on exactly where you are living.

You probably won't be able to get TC cable if you're at The Cube (Massey).
Orcon have their high speed gear in the Courtenay Place exchange and reaches the cnr of Webb+Taranaki well. You'll get an approx ADSL sync of 18mbps.
Their purple+ plan could be good for you.

15GB (more data available)
No contract
Naked DSL (no phoneline)
$79.95

You can also rent their wireless router for $5/month, which is what me and my flat mates do. Very reliable box.

For naked DSL, remember you still need a jackpoint installed even though it doesnt have phone services. If you dont have landline because some problem installing the wiring, you would be going back to look for wireless services.
