I am looking for a mobile broadband plan, preferably with Telecom as they offer a nationwide network.

I need a plan with unlimited gb's and I am happy to pay for the extra usage.

Outside of NZ, many providers offer unlimited plans, and charge $10-$20 per gb for additional data, I havent been able to locate any similar plan here.

I have contacted Telecom but never received a response to my query, does anyone here have any info that might assist me?. Thanks.

There is no unlimited mobile data plan available - neither Telecom or Vodafone offer this. Telecom currently offers up to 1 GB plans. They are all listed on their website at www.telecom.co.nz/mobile.

Thanks for the reply's.

That is very interesting, would Telecom not be making money if they were to charge $20 per additional GB?
They are turning away alot of business by not offering such a plan..

There are no limits. You sign up for a plan with a certain amount of monthyl data allowed and pay a set price. Anything over the allowance is charged - and it is very expensive.

Not as much as they do now: $500 per additional GB (after 2GB)

Wasnt aware of Telstra clear but I will look into that.

Paul, I would certainly be interested in using Vodafone, apart from the fact of the speed issue where good speeds are only obtainable in main centres..

Paul, I would very much like to contact you by email or is there someway you can message me through geekzone?

Check out the vodafone Forum 900mhz UMTS

Also there is lots of 2100mhz UMTS/HSDPA coverage not just in main centers!

Which main centers? You may be pleasantly surprised - I was using my N95 as a BT-modem in Hastings in January and found that I was getting max speeds down there...
