Seems Slingshot have introduced some pretty amazing data plans...
$70 for 250 gigs.. and half price for the first 6 months.. $35 for 250 gigs...
or for lighter users.... 50 gigs for 25 dollars..

I am currently with orcon but its seriously tempting to move over. 

Seems telecom have made moves on their pricing recently too, now slingshot...

Any chance we are going to see anything from Orcon? throw us a bone please!

:)

Ahh really? I must have missed the email, what changed? 
I just looked at their site and seems my plan is the same as its ever been?
or are you talking about the genius plans?

Slingshot might be hocking big data caps, but you've still got to deal with crap performance.

gehenna: Slingshot might be hocking big data caps, but you've still got to deal with crap performance.


Yeah I have heard that about them, and that is the one thing that has kept me with orcon, orcon's internet performance has been fantastic, no matter what time of day I can max my connection out pretty much.
I also think that if an ISP is confident of its product they wouldnt try and lock you in but I guess telecom still have penalties and they have great performance too...

Its just so hard seeing 250 gigs for 70 dollars...... well for 35 dollars for 6 months...:)
too good to be true?
