Good to know. Um is that considered fair?

How much usage would you consider to be fair then?

 

Edit: depending on where you are in Wainui, is VDSL not available?

Yep. Otherwise some idiot would tether their phone and try to download the entire internet, bringing the mobile network to its knees.

The harsh but simply reality is you're going to have to adjust to slower speeds and/or a slower data cap because there simply are no other options.

 

 

 

 

Yes there are :)

 


Like what?

It could potentially happen. If unlimited mobile plans became the norm (not with fair use) I can imagine someone trying to do it.

 

Mobile only has finite bandwidth, whereas copper/fibre has a lot more available.
