Looking for a new ISP, as my current ISP hasn't kept up with the competition in terms of pricing. However as I am likely leaving NZ in the next 6 month, I don't want to get locked into a contract, where I then have to pay a fee if I break the contract. Most seem to have some form of minimum contract if you want good pricing. Can anyone suggest one that has great pricing, but is on a pay as you go contract.

Xnet, Vodafone and Orcon have no contract term options but remember you must give 1 month notice for disconnection, if you expect to be able to ring up and disconnect straight away you'll probably end up paying an extra last month.

If you know exactly when you are leaving you can probably time your disconnection notice appropriately and not need to pay the extra last month.

Telecom have a no contact term option but you pay an extra $99 connection fee upfront. This may or may not be cheaper than paying for the extra month with Xnet, Vodafone or Orcon.

Thanks, I will look at vodafone. Already with xnet, but the costs are high now compared to what others are offering.
