u13turbo: So I see alot of support for bigpipe. What about flip? It's $10 cheaper per month and I'm on a tight budget for awhile.

 

But with BigPipe the more people you sign up to their service the cheaper your bill? ;) - also, capped plans are like so 2000's, we're in the year 2016 now.

Meh I don't know... my internet has been pretty-much free for the last 4 months (wonder why)... Why do you pay with cash money? And better still, why are you giving cash money to the HD overlords?

Look at the Facebook page of unlimitedinternet. Look at how many 'likes' they have yet not a single comment from a customer on the wall which basically means they moderate and delete everything. In fact I don't even think they allow people to post anything on the wall which really tells you a lot about their integrity.

Contrast that with most other ISPs that allow customers to post messages on the wallwith requests for service bigpipe even allows Facebook reviews which I don't think any other ISP does.

Flip is ok, but honestly don't go for a data cap. you will regret it almost immediately it's not worth the extra 10 bucks a month just get it uncapped.

That's not their wall.  That's comments on their adverts from people who aren't their customers because they pay for them to see it.

 

 

 

Their are no straight up wall posts from customers.

As another happy bigpipe customer I would say give them a shot. There is no commitment so if the 3mb plan doesn't work out, you could then give flip a go.

ask for real customers opinions about unlimited here, im only 1 customer, and rate them highly, but I havent seen anyone say anything bad about them (well people that are customers of them, lots of people seem to have an opinion about the guy running it, but thats politics IMO and doesnt reflect their actual service.  I dont care who runs it, its the cheapest and its fast).
