Wonder WxC will do zero-rated data towards site?
Telecom has increased the 50gb data to 80gb for $95 per month and free subscription (cost $150) for new customers.

I choosed to stay with WxC while snap offered half year free broadband because your service team told me that the management awared of that anf your pricing will be reviewed soon, but so far no news after three months.

Chat with the service team again yesterday and been told that at this moment content on will be charged at normal data rate and the issue will be passed onto the management team. But i wonder how soon we can hear from the management team?

Premier League starts in mid-august and the site will be live on 1st August. Provided it might take a couple of week for the ISP changring proccess, maybe you have to give me the answer very soon?

Thank you

If they aren't proactive in updating their plans, or offering you a competitive custom plan, then you really have no option. Regularly changing ISPs is a good thing, as it keeps ISPs competitive.

I wouldn't expect too much.. Chances are anyone else doing so would probably be of no financial gain.

...You do realise that was an all but exclusive deal sealed with a handshake after the rights holder decided to go with an ISP with aparent market share?

Asked if the deal was exclusive to Telecom, Mr Martin said "We won't do a deal with another telco."

He stressed people could still access through any ISP, only without the discount.

No ISP has yet announced zero rating, and I'd be surprised if any do.

Zero rating of any data is wrong in so many ways.

slingshot said they would unmetere the EPL it the day it was announced, but whether they do or not remains to be seen....
