Looks like Slingshot has sharpened their prices and the gig is now down to $99 per month (compared to $85 for 100Mbps).

Might be time to start shopping around. I am pretty happy on the Bigpipe $79 (and I have static IP), but looks like others are coming down to meet it (and in some cases beat it).

 

Gb at $99 is getting tempting.

@IPv6pipe- this is $30 cheaper for the same service (assume they don't have IPv6 however) interested to see how others respond to this. not sure IPv6 is worth a $30 premium

I think 2degrees works out a few cents cheaper $98.33/month . Plus if you're with 2degrees extra $10 off per month works out to $88.33/month.

 

 

 

From their website. 

 

PRICE PER MONTH $115

 

2degrees Broadband Unlimited (UFB) $85

 

Speed Boost $30

 

ADDITIONAL BONUSES

 

$200 Joining Credit

 

 

 

I might be moving to a place that could get fibre, but pitty I have 6 months left with vodafone before I can use 2degrees.

Hawiki means very little since the majority of internet traffic doesn't leave NZ or Australia now.

If you live in Dunedin you can get their "Gigantic" plan for their 100Mbps plans price.

 

That's a gig plan for $85.00 ish per month.

I'm not sure if moving USA closer to NZ is in scope.

I thought the new cable takes a shorter route. 

 

My bad.
