I'm considering moving from TCL lightspeed 20gb to Telecom Pro which offers 40gb. The only niggle I have is while I don't think I would use more than 40gb a month I see if you go over 40gb the cost for data is then 2c/mb This equates to $20.40 per gigabyte (GB)
Is it just me or does this pricing seem a bit odd? i.e. if you go over your cap you really get stung Anyone on Pro? If so, what is it like?
Yes it's like Telecom's residential plans are designed by a schizophrenic. You can get a 30Gb plan that throttles once you reach the cap but you can't buy any extra data. You can get a 40GB plan that doesn't throttle but you get charged $20 /GB for over that.
It's not very consistent and it gives the impression they don't want any heavy users... but then there's Big Time which is unlimited but heavily managed, so they do want heavy users but only really heavy ones that don't care about performance?
They don't really have anything for the market segment that is willing to pay for over 40GB of good performance apart from that business plan they offer. However with that plan you have to factor in gst and the length of the contract (24months?).
You might want to have a look at Snap and Maxnet as options.
