Hi - I've been on Woosh since returning to NZ in '08. I know it was pretty average in it's early days, but I've found it to be great this time around and the only time I've been cut off was when I moved house.
I know everyone's experience is different, but there's alot of stupid snobbery around in these forums about Woosh. I think it's well worth it - plus you're not locked down to having a landline which is great if you don't want one.
Cheers.

I can get anything up to 160Kbps downloads.  I have a really good signal at my place though.

Have managed to use 60+ GB's in a month..
