Hi

Can anyone on Telecom's non unlimited VDSL broadband plan and with a TiVo, confirm whether the traffice is unmetered?

I know ADSL was for a while but that may have changed

I remember getting a letter a long time ago saying it was back to normal I think? But would be keen to know.

I'm on the 150GB Spark (or Telecom) VDSL plan with TIVO and I'm still unmetered. I could probably move to a lower plan but would then have to pay for my static IP.

I'm on the 150GB VDSL also, but trying to check our usage through this portal: https://www.telecom.co.nz/jetstreamum/xtraSum and get a 404 error after I log in. We don't use the MySpark(?) portal for landline as parents prefer a paper bill for their own reasons. 

Prior to changeover to Spark when we could access it, I do recall not showing any usage for like a week I think but put it down to the change in name.

I use the fantastic little "traffic useage checker" utility by Andrew Connell running full time in my tray. As long as it keeps showing 0% I'm happy. A couple of months back, Telecom started metering but it turned out they shouldn't have been. They soon stopped and it was covered in a thread here.

Download it from www.tuc.co.nz

That was probably shut down along with all other Jetstream infrastructure near the end of last month. Broadband is now 100% over the new system.

This I would love to know, back in April I contacted telecom asking about moving house and to arrange for reconnection at new place. While on the phone to telecom I asked about tivo still being unmetered. She said yes then suggested I move to a lower plan to save money as I was unmetered. First week of new connection and we get the 80% email. I ring telecom and then been told the UNmetered had ended. There was the start of my month long battle with telecom over various balls ups with the transfer of connection
