Whats the justification nowadays for Telecom and other isp's to charge an extra $10 if you dont live in a city. Are they not worried about customers outside the centres because theres not enough of them? Dont they do all their help etc thru the phone lines or internet  so theres no difference where you live? What happened to competition?

It's very simple really. A standard POTS phoneline costs less in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch than it does everywhere else in NZ. This cost is passed on to customers if you have a phone+internet.

If you have a naked connection the wholesale naked cost is now the same right across the whole country.

These prices are regulated by the Commerce Commission. If you take issue with this pricing they're the people to contact.
