RAH! - OK, so I may be stating the obvious for those people who have been on top of the news more recently than me. I am just doing the research again, as a friend asked me which was the best plan to go with....
The spreadsheet / graphs provided were a real help to reaffirming my personal choice of slingshot a few months ago, but not that useful for the more recent price plans.
Just thought I'd provide a bit of help to the souls who find the same forum link on a google search of "Broadband ISP ~compare New zealand"
Really sorry about lack of updates, the past few days were a bit tiring for me. Since the mid-semester break started I'll use the spare time to update it and leave the software project to next week (Compsys 302 project weighing 50% of total marks, have to code an instant messenger programme using python).
Now with new plans from Xtra and Ihug, take a look at xtra's 3.5m 10GB auto sense plans at the table section. It is actually possible to reach a jaw dropping $22.7k charge if you max it out to 1.1TB a month...
a) the domain belongs to you and there was no disclosure of this in the post b) that make me believe it's a URL drop, which is forbidden in the Forum Usage Guidelines
It just happens that we are very strict about URL drops, because a lot of people come here and make fake posts "I just found about a website xyz", when in fact there's no "I just found out", since they own the site. This people won't come back here ever, and won't contribute to the community at all.
I decided to be heavy on this side to make sure the whole site is clean, without spam. In this case, since the OP thinks it's related I will reinstate the link.
