Xnet torrent plan

Xnet torrent plan Just noticed this on their website. Im going to ring them tomorrow to find out more. But in the meantime does anyone know about it? Seems between midnight and 8am you get 75gig free per month, and through the day you pay $1.54gig dureing the day? Im on the river plan and use around 18GB per month, so if I downloaded at night, and only used the net for e-mails/surfing and say used 8GB a month during the day, would I only pay about $13 per month + $33.95,instead of around $55-$60 per month? sounds a bit to good to be true? So instead of 18GB a month I could dl 93GB for cheaper if I wanted to?

It is x-net's solution to the peak time slowness that has been a problem for quite a while. They have just introduced this plan to lure the p2p heavy downloaders away from the primetime. It is not too good to be true - they have been saying they would be offering a financial incentive to ease the peak time congestion. This is it :-)

The question is, I wonder if they will be heavily monitoring the traffic that is done with this plan. Or at least eventually forced to monitor it more.

Yes you are correct You get charge $1.54 for each GB but during the night between 12-8am it is free.I am on the plan now

Is anyone on fusion ? I might make the jump anyone liking fusion so far ?

I'd be interested to see what others think of the new plans as well, those that are actually using them, what price it ends up at the end of a month, I'm usually fairly lite on dl's, but I do use torrents now and then, be interested to see if the price differs or not, and by how much.

Fusion = FantasticAbsolutely superb. Compare it with Telecom's "Pro" plan - 15G capped broadband per month at $80 plus $45 for a homeline = $125 plus high toll ratesXnet Fusion - 15G (not capped) full speed up & down broadband per month for $85.31 INCLUDING PHONE! Plus 5c per minute for calls to almost anywhere in the world, free VoiceMail, Call Forwarding, Caller ID, 3 Way Calling, Call WaitingQuality every bit as good as a normal phone line. Suits me fine.

Might want to wait a few days/weeks i switched to the torrent plan 2 days ago and it didnt kick in ( i think) till last night, my internet went out for a few hours without warning so i called them and they said it was going to need a port reset at the exchange, ever since yesterday i havent been able to conect to the exchange faster than 900kbits, i hope this is a coincidence and that there is a psychical problem at the exchange, i havent changed my network in any way so its not our problem. maybe just their way to screw people out of bandwidth?

geek_seriouslycgi, May 24, 10:01 am

On Fusion but i am sticking with the unlimited plan. Because we use the internet more in the day time and we don't do that much p2p stuff. lol

geek_qazzy03, May 24, 1:18 pm

Just changed to fusion yesterday still waiting on my own number to be transfered otherwise all good. but how come you are paying over $80? I am only meant to be paying $69.95 p/m.

geek_tammy30, May 24, 7:34 pm

The $85 includes comparison of 15gb (@$1/gb) to telecom 69.95 fusion includes no data its $1/gb or torrent plan = ~$1.50/gb + free from 12am-7am.

geek_seriouslycgi, May 24, 7:42 pm

Im with snap they had a similar plan not to long ago, but its from 7pm - 7am FS/FS unlimited and from 7am-7pm speeds are at 64k but its faster than this i feel.

geek_kylea_damien, May 24, 8:47 pm

So kylea_damien What speeds are you getting on FS/FS ?

geek_nosnibor2, May 24, 9:45 pm

Bumped for dalzone

geek_mattie47, May 25, 12:54 pm

Hmm just a thoughtif you do lots of downloading at night then surely thats when they'll switch on traffic shaping to determine download characteristics. Makes you a target I say for inspection. Especially if what they say (a few heavy downloaders clog the pipes).

geek_northshorepx, May 25, 2:09 pm

I didn't see where the first 75 gig was free PER MONTH I think its the first 75 gig period

geek_art4ukiwi, May 25, 2:14 pm

Its "First 75GB per month" http://www.xnet.co.nz/hsi/
