Re: Speeds are absurdly slow

Exetel in my opinion seems to recently have started throttling P2P between 2am and 12noon. I've been a happy Exetel customer for more than five and a half years and while I can live with this throttling - I would like an explanation of why it was introduced. My P2P client in configured to only downl...

Re: Possible New ADSL2 Plans For New Financial Year

Would be very interested if people switching from "with phone" to naked ADSL2 can "bring their phone number" to the VOIP service. One or two of the other ISPs currently offer this option.
