I understand that plans change, it's the $120 a yr xtra (ha) that I have to pay telecom for roughtly the same service. (Rather have that in my pocket) I get 6M ish sync speed on DSL as the cabinet is only 200 mtrs away. so I'm happy with my current plan, cost & Service :)
The only reason for not moving is because no other ISP offered the unlimited download plan.
I'm a large user 50+ gig a month so I like the umlimited download, it's just gonna cost me $10 more a month :(
Yeah understand that. At the end of the day it is just Telecom trying to make extra $$. They have had a rough time lately nd their profits are way down. It doesn't them cost more to offer full speed on the uplink as they pay for the size of the pipe not the traffic so they can kill the old plan and move people to the new one and charge them an extra 10 a month it costs them nothing more but of course adds to their profit, 10 isn't too much but given the amount of people on the plan it all adds up of course.
This is a company that is getting hammered from every direction right now (and rightly so). I am sure they are under pressure from their shareholders to squeeze some more $$. Looks like they will be regulated in the cell market also after having ripped everyone off for a decade or so and still trying to (along with vodafone)...(grumble grumble)
Anyway at the end of the day, it is a decent plan still, things in a few years should be more interesting hopefully with the promise of fibre etc. Hopefully we will be looking back on adsl as we do on dialup now :)
