I’ll head back to 2degrees or the other ISP that was good but to me, Orcon.


Since I left a Vodafone cable area I am now with Bigpipe (and have been for 4 years years of which 1.5 have been on fibre)


I am looking at Stuff Fibre (another Vocus company like Orcon) they do $89 on a 12 month contract for their boost plan which is (950/450) This is same as the $89 for 100/100 I am paying to Bigpipe


They charge $49 one off for a Static IP


Been a Vocus RSP this should give me great performance WFH as our ASN is downstream from Vocus


What is putting me off is the 30+ places my current static with Bigpipe is whitelisted including the management network for our Australian DC and they charge a fortune to update it (which Ultimately I will have to front up as I am making the election to change RSP

God, I don't know why anyone would move to My Republic. At least 2degrees have someone you can speak to if things go wrong.


An open term plan wouldn't tempt me - if you really want that though, like Michael says, have a look at Voyager.
