We are on total home and previously had a 10G cap. Last month started paying an extra $10/month to move to a 20G cap.

So.......should we be able to move to unlimited for free?

Am I understanding this correctly

Shaping only peak times from 3pm through 10pm.

Normal Internet traffic will not be shapped at all - only large files and some types.

This plan will be available from 7th July.

Correct. You will be able to move to this new plan which will cost the same as you are paying now. Your connection will be ok for Internet browsing, emails, etc. It will be shaped on large downloads.

Shape works on a cache based rule. If you are the first one to download a large Apple update then you will be shapped. Once the file is cached, then it's full speed for everyone else.

Mauricio can you answer my previous question if you know the answer? "Is this available to buisness (telecom) customers as well? or just for home (xtra) plans? "

Thanks M.

I don't understand the pricing... how much will it cost in the end? I got that I should have telecom phone as well and then could switch to that new unlimited plan. is it correct?

Go Large will be turned off. Users will be offered an option to move to other plans - including "Big Time".
"Big Time" is full speed up and down, Go Large is full speed down only.
