Talkiet:DravidDavid: I just switched a few days ago.
There is also a plan available that Telecom does not advertise. My friend called one night to complain and they just said they would put him on an unlimited plan without traffic shaping. When I asked about it they claimed it did not exist.
Your friend was imagining things. No such plan exists. The person you spoke to at Telecom was telling the truth when they said it doesn't exist.
Hope that's 100% clear enough to nip this rumour in the bud.
In fact, let's be totally fair about this... Have your friend PM his phone number to me (if he's still with Telecom Retail) and I'll find out through the correct channels what plan he is on and report back to him (only). He can then confirm this is an unfounded rumour.

DravidDavid: according to a friend of mine, the shaping servers have a list of games that is getting bigger. Apparently Modern Warfare 2 isn't even able to connect to anything.
WoW might be in the same category.
simj2120: Hi guys,
After very much loving of the Pro plan I was on for wow(Didn't have one disconnection and didn't need wowtunnels at all!) I had to switch back due to mb usage. Dam people in this house hold! As soon as I said no downloads because we are not on a unlimited plan, they download 4 times as much!
Anyway, after switching back, I disconnected every pc on the network and connected directly to the modem, removing all routers etc and I can safely say to you that my problems with wow and the Big time plan are still there. I have tried to connect 7 times tonight and disconnected before I can even check my mail. I would tell you what my ping was but I'm not on long enough for it to register a response.
Maybe this is a sign to start playing more tennis and get rid of my internet :)
tunafish: Changed from Big time to Adventure and still cannot watch a video on NZHerald and its 10:48 PM, shame on Telecom this isn't broadband.
