    They are all the same! They want your $$ and the service varies from shit to ok!

    Personally I couldn't give 2 fucks who sleeps with who or who merges with who....At the end of the day..we want interwebs and we will pay.. :thumbup:

    I've never had anything but good experiences from iiNet support.

    Oh I am trying to work out where you are coming from .. let's see if I can explain it in words of a couple of syllables .. Internode is no more .. owned by IINET.
