My wife and I are coming back to NZ in toward the tail end of the year (August maybe) and I'm looking into the state of broadband.
I'm currently connected via a smallish LLU provider on adsl2+ annex M (25,474/2,550 kbps @ £22.50/month unlimited) and use around 100gig a month as we don't have a TV and use streaming TV and on demand.
Been looking around and think that one of the packages of 50gig might be ok. Been looking at Snap and Maxnet, but will welcome any suggestions.
What I want/need in an ISP:
Good community (fourm/irc/usenet)
Tweak-able settings (SNR/interleaving)
Would like annex M
Will probably be in Te Awamutu when we move back
Would defiantly look at naked dsl
Don't need email/webspace/bells/whistles etc
As we have been out of country for 10 years I'll need some adjusting to the NZ way of doing broadband ;)
Looking forward to any advice,
