The speed from Client to Provider is very slow. ADSL - is less 0.2 Mb/s. Speed from Provider to client -s 8 Mb/s. It is impossible to watch anything. Useless support
Low speed from client

I signed up for VDSL connection. The speeds are terrible, slower than normal ADSL. Also when you go to use the Internet for the first time on any given day, it takes about 1-2minutes for the internet to come up.. after that it is okay, but its annoying waiting for what should be an instant always-on service. Also, I had my own modem, and I configured it using the settings they give on their website. This didnt work, so I had to ring the helpdesk, who then took me through the ...read more
Slow VDSL. Slow to startup for first use each day.

worst customer experience of my life.
the price, and the customer service agents were really good - but considering how the facebook comments page has been disabled i imagine they are very practiced in "damage control"
- it took 5 months to get fibre installed, multiple days of no shows regarding install, and on top of that when i complained they told me "it not our fault its chorus' fault, if you have a problem complain to them" and t ...read more

Never going to unlimited internet again
Hidden charges and rip off Customer

Static IP cost is only charged once, which is very cost effective
Reliable and no contact lock in

Been with Unlimited internet twice. Both times have been a great experience. Jumped ship to Bigpipe to make use of a massive special and because 100/20 fibre was not offered at the time, only 100/100. Now 100/20 is offered for $70 flat, no contract making this THE BEST option out there for fibre users.
Only switched to Orcon as flat mate works there and gets account credit. The bottom dollar drives our flat account.
Best value for $$
Slightly above full speed (105mbps speedtest.net however I live very close to an exchange)
Great support (gave a 9 instead of 10 as I never had issues to properly test the level support)
Gave 7 for features as no direct debit option, had to use credit card or bank deposit. Direct debit preferred as no admin involved

Good service, lovely team, affordable price
the $150 connection fee is a pain, but since it's no contract it makes sense why big companies locks customers on a contract so they can recover the connection fee.
sometimes wait time is a bit long
