Constantly buffering took 1 1/2 hrs to watch 40 mins of a movie before I gave up. Apart from telling me I was getting tremendous data transfer, in fact some of the highest they'd seen, they weren't interested in fixing the problem.
Complete lack of interest in fixing my buffering problem almost certainly caused by a faulty modem

Not too bad
Seemed really slow compared to Stuff. Have since switched back at the end of my 12 month contract.

Strict NAT. That means you cannot get into your router or set passwords/wifi name, and no port forwarding. It is terrible for gaming! On the plus side, VDSL is stable and getting faster with more dropping off to fibre. Also, I've had to arrange fibre install as NOva are usless.
Strict NAT, Bad support.

Okay if you want the absolute basics, but support was patchy, no support to talk to at weekends, and they don't let you BYO router/modem.

Been with Nova Energy for ~3 months. No comment on speed/reliability, generally good and seemingly on-par with Spark.
Deciding to switch because they force you to use their own routers if you want to use VoIP, and their routers are locked so you can't even change your wireless ID or wireless password, terrible from a security perspective, plus the router wireless range is pretty bad.
Reliable speed
Poor performance modem router, no configuration allowed
