Hmmm, 60% premium for a business plan over the iiNet Residential where you can get 100/40 and 1TB traffic for $99/month

So what are the differences with the business plan? Better SLA or contention ratios?

Also from my experience data in Australia in terms of bandwidth pricing seems more expensive than NZ? They have this thing about usage based pricing rather than per mbps.

I would guess it's the better SLA like UFB, Enhanced SLA costing $25-50 here allowed for SLA based service restore times of under 8 hours

Something i have noticed about other countries-

Almost everyone in NZ has very good internet speeds - 5mbits+, with an average of 10.9mbits
And in most of our DSL markets, there are no price differences between speed tiers - its mostly just Full Speed ADSL2+, dependant on loop length.

Where as overseas, if you are a small business, suddenly there is a price jump.
And for many DSL markets in the USA, 2 megabits is still the standard speed.

Forgotten what my point was now.
