AAISP - was with them 2 years ago, brilliant!
Zen - was with them over 10 years ago for ADSL and been with them for the past 2 years for FTTC, also brilliant. And you finally got IPv6 deployed!
IDNet - who I will be moving to shortly.
Chose to move as:
1. Not been with IDNet before. Always interesting to try something new. And they tick all the boxes at the right price point (native IPv6 etc).
2. Zen's call charges per minute (for land line at least) appear to be over 10 times more expensive than what IDNet are offering. There is still the call setup charge to consider, but given this fact, and the fact that IDNet throw in 7 line features as standard (which all cost extra with Zen), I think I'll be saving some money by doing this.
3. IDNet offer a 55/10 FTTC speed. Nice! So that's what I've gone for. Also paying a year up front means that this package comes in cheaper than Zen's Unlimited 40/10 package @ £43.99 per month.
What I will lose:
My block of 8 IPs. Never used them all anyway and I can do everything I need to do with just 1 address. IDNet also offer 4 IPs which is a nice gap filler for the 8 IPs Zen can provide.
For those still locked into Zen contracts, I was advised on the phone today by Zen that they are looking to offer new packages early next year, one of those being the 55/10 speed. But they really need to rework their call tariffs because I do feel they might be just a tad overpriced right now.
Anyways, thank you Zen for a superb couple of years of service! If all goes south, I will no doubt return (with my tail between my legs).
