Why not? there are the single biggest ISP in New Zealand, I think lots of the customer would be interested if it was available!

To be honest spotify isn't that big a deal, I have a US account and it uses very little of my cap.

For all the music I listen to regularly it caches offline (even on free account).

I usually listen to 2-3 hours a day and haven't noticed any difference in my general usage ~50Gb a month.


On the other hand, if quickflix wasn't unmetered and it offers content I want I will be moving ISPs very quickly.

There isnt any reason for them to unless a partnership is made. And i can't see that happening.

Would rather they work on a true un-metered plan al la Go Large 3.0 or Big Time 2.0 but better planned/managed.

eXDee: There isnt any reason for them to unless a partnership is made. And i can't see that happening.

Plus they already have a partnership with Tivo for their Caspa service (which I wish would raise itself to the level of crapness people are complaining about Quickflix having), so there may be an obstacle there.

Isn't Vodafone the one that's furthest in bed with Sky?
