Slingshot Naked Unlimited or Orcon Genius Unlimited?

Postby xpigx » Tue Jan 08, 2013 12:37 pm

Ok, so looking at the options for Wellington it seems that ADSL2 will be a far cheaper options than Cable / VDSL and aside from the upload speeds not too much of a compromise.

So narrowing it down naturally to either Slingshot or Orcon (I could give or take the VoIP line to be honest...) what would you guys reccommend? are there any differences of speed on either / or?

They both promise max up and down line speeds and no traffic shaping.

Cheers

I dont know about slingshot but Orcon is shaped pretty chronic. Can have shocker days where ping to CW is 1000ms.

Signed up with Compass on their Mammoth broadband plan which is unlimited and only $79.95 per month.
They had a deal where you could join on no contract, so I thought this would be a good idea before I decide whether or not I need Telstra Cable.

I know that Compass has the worst rep ever and is supposed to be a pile of crap network, but so far they have been totally great and the speeds are decent, stable and totally fine for browsing, streaming video, downloading torrents and watching Netflix.

Their support team have been awesome too, not sure if they have all of a sudden really stepped it up or whether we just got them on good days... either way, meh. Cheap and unlimited suits me.

Thanks for all your advice peeps.

Wifey is settled now in our new place and I move in four weeks, resigned from my job today and signed my new contract.

Stoked! Love me some Wellington.

Went with Compass in the end who are notorious for their rubbish service and support, but couldn't look past the Unlimited Mammoth plan for $80 per month.

Surprisingly they have been great to deal with and very helpful.

Maintaining a ping of around 40, downstream of about 12mb and torrents coming down at 1.3mbps

Solid.
