keewee01:SparX711: Can we stop speculating on what and how paying customers have used the bigtime plan.
Unless i am mistaken, Telecom marketed and took peoples money for an "unlimited data and full-line-speed" internet plan that would be "managed" so as to be fair to all users on all plans they market.
In my humble opinion, if a customer choose to sign up and use the plan at face value consuming many hundreds of gigs of data then good on them, there are as many legitimate reasons as there are potentially illegal for moving large amounts of data. Constantly blaming and flaming heavy users only clouds over the fact that telecom has failed to effectively manage a popular product and now chooses to wash their hands of it.
What can we (the paying customer) do about that ?
But as others have already pointed out - a lot of people where getting around being "managed" - that is certainly not Telecom's fault as I doubt they told people how to do so.
You seem to have missed the point, Telecom have failed to manage the plan effectively. Instead of dealing with the issues or the individuals they have chosen to cancel the bigtime plan and force its customers to move to another and pay more for less. Do you think that is ok ?
