Saw this on the website: "iSKY un-metering applies to all Vodafone fixed line broadband plans at home until further notice. on iSKY is not un-metered and will count toward your fixed broadband usage."

Can someone from Vodafone please confirm if "all Vodafone fixed line broadband plans at home" include the InHome cable broadband customers too?

Yup. It is working for me (Christchurch InHome) when it was still TelstraClear. It was probably a year ago it was okay.

Not sure of the unmeterred though. I have 150GB to burn, so not monitoring the data trickle.

Internet is my backyard...

Thanks for all the feedback - we (InHome cable customers) need a definitive answer to clear-up the confusion created by the wording on the Vodafone website.

Wow. Cool. Sky say that no ISP's unmeter isky so it is great to see that Vodafone still unmeter it particularly after the move to Akamai.

My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Oops. Just read the very very small print at the bottom of the Vodafone page on isky. Obviously no-one is unmetered now.....

Someone from Vodafone here - it may pay to remove the large font stuff about it being unmetered.
