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?

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...
