kiwits: so if i get this right telecom owns slingshot or the other way round

neither is true!! and Slingshlt owning Telecom New Zealand??? BWAHAHA


...at the moment thinking i should had gone with orcon as so many or my friend gone that way now

So you think you should have gone with Orcon?

but gave orcon a go first

But you just made out like you should have but didnt?>??

my rating for xtra is 95/100 as i setup adsl connect with them no problem to date ..would i join them ..thinking .but gave orcon a go first

Who would rate an ISP at 95% and then not use them because "i will give orcon a go first" ??

BBSes are still alive, both telnet and dialup... go looking and you will find...

Wow, Slingshot telling you to ring up Telecom. Well all Telecom will be able to help you with is switching to Xtra!
