farcus: Telecom via AAPT in Australia have been expanding their unmetered plans. Why is it they are unable to offer similar plans here in NZ where they have a larger customer base?
AAPT here have an enormous amount of bandwidth available on their network. They supply primarily business customers (large spikes of traffic during the day) and they provision bandwidth to cater for this. They own a carrier grade network, their own DSLAMs and all customer facing operations are overseas. There's also a lot of competition from other ISPs such as TPG which contributes even more to this.
