I'm on the 90GB fs/fs plan for $100 right now.. and was wondering if it's a good deal...  this company is run by Koreans so it's probably not that well known by NZers... but I'm only concerned about the price and it's a good deal so that's why I'm on it.  Lol I was a bit surprised when the call takers actually spoke good english.. (like not pansy wong english but "native" english lol)

I thought I would be doing them a favour by at least letting people know about megatel lol... they don't get the attention they deserve :)

Can somebody please recommend me cheap ISP that are not that well known because I'm sure there are tonnes out there... (not the top 4 ones)
I'm sticking to megatel for the time being :)

Quite interesting that this ISP you love, lol, has this report from google, lol.


Of the 2 pages that we tested on the site over the past 90 days, 2 page(s) resulted in malicious software being downloaded and installed without user consent. The last time that Google visited this site was on 2010-05-15, and the last time that suspicious content was found on this site was on 2010-05-15.

Malicious software is hosted on 2 domain(s), including spbseti.ru/, escorialescorial.com/.

This site was hosted on 1 network(s) including AS4768 (Telstra Clear Ltd).


lol

does not look good does it, lol.

Nor does using lol, as its lol, just not english lol.

english lol.................. lol

Well then ignore my post because I think megatel's the next best thing after orcon... NZers like me were too dumb to know about it sooner.

Go to this link
www.megatel.co.nz

That should work lol.

Thought I would point out, that ALL of their plans are limited to 128k upload. So no FS/FS plans.

Do you happen to work for them, or be associated with them in any way?

The reason I ask, is that you have just come on here, and created this thread, aswell as posting in two others, which I have hidden for now, as they do not exactly relate to the topics on hand.

lol no I don't work for them haha.. I thought that they deserved better attention for their work.  We already know that telstraclear, slingshot, orcon, xnet are the big four... but companies like megatel are unknown.. lol.. I thought I could help by posting here :)

Hmmm, I wonder if the site attacks have been removed yet?
Quite right though, there is a FS/FS plan.

I suggest you have a read of the FUG, and seriously recommend you stop saying lol.

Geek language has nothing to do with it. All we ask is that you speak english, plain and simple.
Obviously some people will speak it as their 2nd/3rd/4th etc language, but im pretty sure 'lol' never has been part of regular english. Its purely 'text' speak, and its best kept there.

OK.. I'll follow the guidelines :)  I speak both Korean and English fluently... some people get really surprised when I just jabbering in Korean  (they probably think I'm a banana)
Can I ask you what you do for a living though ??? You sound very intelligent... are you an IT programmer or something?? You should like a typical programmer... I used to flat with a programmer... haha
