Hey, I recently found out about Worldnet. I was just wondering if it's any good as the plans seem pretty cheap. I'm currently on Telecom's Big Time and would prefer having faster speeds for P2P and gaming. Cheers!

They have been around for a long time but they don't have a very good reputation for service or support from what I've heard.

I'd have serious doubts Worldnet's unlimited plan would be superior to Telecom Big Time.

Well I won't be changing to their unlimited plan though. I'll probably be changing to a capped plan thanks. So is there anybody that actually uses this?

I was on it, but I changed back, I've got mates capped on teh 10gb, the speeds are just appalling at the moment and have been for almost a year :S it forced me to switch back to Telecom

You might be better off for some games, depending on what you play, I play World at War and Modern warfare 2 fine on the bigtime connection and get better pings than my old Xnet connection.
As for P2P, both are painfully slow, be easier finding someone in the states and paying them to burn DVDs and ship them back :)

I have moved across the ditch.  Now residing in Melbourne as a VOIP/Video Technical Trainer/Engineer.
