Just did a quick comparison of what $120 will buy our household (Since we are changing services and that is our budget)
$120 from Slingshot = Phone + 250GB Net (as we know they also have a unlimited plan for cheaper but it is shaped)
$130 from Vodafone = Phone + 120GB Net
$110 from Woosh = Phone + 100GB Net
$125 from Telecom = Phone + 80GB Net
$120 from Orcon = Phone + 70GB Net
$115 from Snap = Phone + 55GB Net
$120 from Xnet = Phone + 40GB Net
So my questions are
1) How can slingshot be so much cheaper than others , if data is "Expensive" ?
2) Isps are charging up to $3 per extra gb (With $2 being the norm) .. how can they justify this ??
3) Are other ISPS simply pocketing the extra profits with data getting cheaper and cheaper ?
4) Sorry I needed to have a rant since this just seems silly :P
As I said.. seems to me ISPs (Bar Slingshot) are not passing cheaper data costs to the consumers
