Visafone Trial

Moved to Visafone last week, or was it the week before? It has been pretty good, I have to say. The service was supposed to be activated a few hours after paying at the Visafone shop, but that didn't happen causing me to wonder whether I had made a horrible mistake dumping my beloved Netcom.

I took my laptop back to the shop the next day and after a few calls, it was up and running. And since then, it's been really good. Much faster than the Netcom, it appears (I have the Gold account) and portable. The portability is actually the nicest thing about Visafone, as Netcom came with a bulky modem that had to be almost constantly plugged into the a socket. Although it should have been able to retain its charge for up to 3 hours, I had never found this to be the case and so was always tied to one spot.

@ibiluv, I hope so oh!!! It was a big decision for me to leave My Netcom.

@Osita, well, I used Netcom for close to 3 years and was mostly happy with it. Tying out other service providers at work or through friends made me realise that I had a good thing with Netcom.

Ayo, ah sorry to hear that. Mine has been great so far. Maybe, we're still in the honeymoon phase. I tried to attach a file of about 90MB. Too much to hope for, I guess..

I am going to ask you how you feel about this service in about a month. If it's still all good then I'll get it as I am in the market for an ISP.
