I am currently with snap on their 25GB full speed up and full speed down. It was a great company - good plans, good speed. I was always getting 7.5Mbits DL and 800Kbits UL, but recently my speeds have been dropping and I am noticing some companies starting to offer no data cap again and thats what im really after. Does anyone know what these plans are like? are the speeds any good on it? are the companies good to work with?

snap offer a very good product from what I've seen/read. You could try something like Telecom Big Time but you can't expect to get the same performance from an unlimited performance as you would on a capped plan. Logically it just doesn't make sense.

the usual ISPs to offer good service are

Telstraclear, Telecom (capped plan), Snap and Maxnet, although and epitiro will for some reason try tell you otherwise.

yeah i had looking into telecom big time and saw the speeds were pathetic, worse than dial up. I want alot of data but it has to be fast aswell, I dont see the point in getting it uncapped and it being so slow it wont run. I used to have an uncapped plan with woosh and they were good until they downgraded me!
