I should have read the reviews first. Service dropped out regularly, wireless installation required more phonecalls to support than acceptable. We have just moved house and despite the fact that I gave plenty of notification of the move, we have been nearly THREE WEEKS without any hint of when the service might be reconnected. Every time I call, customer service says the same thing: "Awww, umm...we should know in 24-48 hours...ummm". A seriously shit company.
Pros
Cons
Customer service is virtually non-existent. They genuinely don't give a damn. Utterly useless service and crappy hardware.

incompetent support team who didn't know what UDP traffic was, nor would they do traceroutes to troubleshoot.
Pros
they will sign you up for a deal
Cons
You have to spend hours and hours on hold to do anything and then you reach incompetent support team.

I have been on the same plan for a couple of years at least(40gb for $70 odd with landline). Their new plans offer much better data BUT they have not advised me of any better options. Upon contacting them vis email I was informed I would have to sign a 12 month contract to avail myself of these improved options.
Pros
Connection has been reliable and generally good speed.
Cons
Getting to talk to a real person is very difficult.

Absolutely disgusted by this Internet providers ethics and communication. Would NOT recommend this to anyone EVER.
Pros
NIL
Cons
Overcharged billing account was then blocked, then charged an extra $200 worth of data AFTER account was closed on top of that.
They refuse to take any responsibility even with all evidence and statements provided.
Further action is currently being taken.
