So, I moved ISP’s today. And home phone provider too. We have shooted over to Vodafone and jumped onto the Ultimate Pack.
It’s unlimited speeds up and down. I’ve managed to download at 3.7mbps and upload at 1mbps. I’d hardly call that “unlimited”, and you only get 20GB per month. But it’s better than Woosh which was charging me $55 for only 10GB per month. And once you factor in that I used to pay $45 per month for the phone line alone, we’re a little bit better off.
I have two Vodafone mobile phones but I can’t get any deals on those as well. Dang. I’ll say one thing, it’s much better to have a bit of variety for homephones in NZ. We used to only have Telecom and they were so bloody minupulative-monopoly. Bloody dodgy bastards.
Anyhoo, I thought I would celebrate by finishing off some torrents. I haven’t been able to upload faster than 128k (16kbps) EVER and now I can finally download at faster than 14kbps Cos Woosh used to throttle my speeds because I was a known “torrenter”. BASTARDS!!!
