With the recent "issues" that TelstraClear (cable) is having I'm thinking it's time to give ADSL another go, but don't want to commit myself to a contract in case it really just doesn't work out well enough (principally, the A in ADSL). I'd want to run both cable and ADSL for a month before deciding which way to stay.

Apart from Orcon, who I see in the Geekzone forums is also having a few problems at the moment, are there any other ADSL ISP's which don't tie you into a contract period, or at least a no-penalty trial period.  I don't want hardware, and I don't mind paying more for no-contract.

However, they will charge a churn fee.

Xnet has a sliding early disconnection charge that reduces as you get closer to 1 year

They don't mention that on their FAQ: http://www.xnet.co.nz/hsi/faq.shtml

Your right they dont, it was the case when I signed my parents up just under a year ago - it may have since changed??

I just cancelled Xnet after one month and was not charged any cancellation fees. I was also told when I connected that there was no minimum term.

Why did you cancel if I may ask, poor service or just change in circumstance?

Sorry, I read your post three hours ago and forgot to reply! I had some problems, particularly with latency, which are described in this thread. I've moved back to TelstraClear now.
