I'm with Snap in ChCh and their accounts dept seems hopeless, they always make mistakes, then make more mistakes trying to correct the original mistake.After I got Broadband they forgot to connect my phone for a month until I reminded them.
My phone stopped working for a week a fortnight ago, so I'm gonna have to ask them for a discount on my bill.

for me it only started when i changed from plan C to A i got charged the plan C price on A invoic they still seem one of the cheapest isp i found 1 site to compair and actrix seemsso far the next best thing as its got adsl2 and a 10 gig plan fullspeed. snap is listed as 800 speed....... I was happy and my invoices where usually correct till then and i am currently in switzerland so i dont give a care if they disconnect my phone if i dont pay my bill next month.. wish 2degree would have wired services they could be a good . i use a prepay cell and it costs me almost nothing to call nz on it

We've had Xnet since early 2008. Never had much more than 1000kbps down and 150kbps up. Made numerous helpdesk calls only to be pretty much fobbed off with things like it's my phone line, Telecom is to blame, etc.

Finally decided to make a change, especially after comparing pricing.

We were with Telecom for phone and Xnet for broadband. Used 18GB last month. Total cost for broadband and phone was $123.

Found that Vodafone had a 30GB plan with phone for $100.

Signed up on Sunday and got connected today. Been very impressed so far with changeover. Very good communication via email status updates.

First thing I did was hit speedtest.net. 5600 kbps down and 445kbps up! Same modem, same everything except ISP! Yesterday, same test was 900kbps down and 120kbps up via Xnet. Both ISP's plans state maximum up and down.

Also, on the 30GB plan, we can get MySKY HDi through Vodafone with no monthly fee - just $99 connection.
