Since they are focusing hugely on the internet and how much it costs to customers I thought I would ask people here what your opinion is on them and their policies. They mostly want to cut the price of internet connections in half and provide a a certain amount of data for free. I would be interested to see what the users here who work for ISPs have to say.

Share your view on the IP policies.

Short answer:  amusement. 

Longer answer:  Generally net neutrality and privacy don't fit well with a socialist agenda.  The most frightening calls for curtailing Internet freedom in NZ have been from the left.  The world's remaining socialist counties generally have heavily filtered and monitored internet access.  It will also be interesting to see how the Internet-Mana party copes with the Internet as a force to disrupt and replace traditional production and distribution.  

I'm amused that they're cannibalising the Greens vote tho.  But on the bright side they may encourage the young to vote, but they're likely in that aspect to be like the Greens, you vote for them the first time and then you realise it's not in your, the country's, or the environment's interest to do so again.

afe66: The only political party I get nervious about the the Conservatives.

As an aetheist I dont want laws passed on the preferences of one religous group who believe in one brand of sky fairy. (When we know nz gods were Ranginui and Papatuanuku).

Why do people assume that social conservatives are all reglious?

Because social conservatism is a religion.
There's no other rational explanation for why some people would want to impose their conservative values on everybody else, legislated - and therefore able to be legally enforced,  if resisted then ultimately through initiating the use of force - without some belief system that they have which grants them the moral right to force others what to do what they tell them to do.  They are much the same as hard-line communists - which should also be considered a religion IMO.
