Best ISP Winner: Lifehacker 2010 Awards

The vote for best ISP was closely fought, and it’s probably no surprise that the two prime contenders have names beginning with I. Who got the Lifehacker reader vote?

Thanks yet again to everyone who voted. Voting is still open in the mobile broadband category, which we’ll announce tomorrow.


  • Would have to agree with you Jason, TPG’s ADSL2+ unlimited plan is great value and I’ve never had any issues with TPG and been with them for well over 4-5 years now.

  • I was taken in by the BOB HYPE too and made the decision to change to iiNet, but after 6 weeks and speaking to 9 different people, my internet was still not up and running. No real explanation given. Both AAPT and iiNet passing the blame for some kind of prob with my line. I had 2 middle managers give their promise to personally fix it. Still got nowhere. I cancelled the application in the end.

    So I genuinely can’t understand iiNet winning anything.

    disenchanted and disappointed

  • long time Internode customer, but now I rate their service as – FAIL.

    Currently trying to relocate the ADSL service to a new premises. Has taken 4 phone calls – total time on hold before speaking to an operator around 2 HOURS 45 MINUTES – and one of those calls ended with them closing for the night.

    Tried submitting an email request, took at least 2-3 DAYS for them to respond to each of my 3 emails.
