I have to agree with most that it has a feel of a TelecomGate. they got us to move from vodafone with
this best plan about knowing they kill it off and try to keep us on the poor data plans for the same cash deal.
wasnt this what they got sued over in recent news 2million payout to vodafone etc

instead of offering a cap data of 100gb with $2 per gb over like they should they now forcing us
to either drop to the standard 20GB plan which hardly anything or

40gb plan for a extra $20 a month. (but they have a limited deal to kill the extra $20 for only 3 moths if sign up to it??). what a joke. the data is way too expense.

I thought it was NOT  data consumption the problem but the bandwidth used epsc peak times. as I read else where they are charged on bandwidth
not the  data so its about carving up the bandwidth per user

I think seriously they need to offer 80 or 100gb plan for the same money even at a fixed lower speed
or capped only at peak times.. that would be acceptable.
they may not keep us now if something better competes to fill the hole.

i probably waste 10gb alone each month of failed downloads that dont have resume

I assume you mean the recent case where Telecom were fined $1.6 million for offering loyalty rebates to other ISP's who chose to stay with Telecom Wholesale rather than move their business to other telco's who offer ULL services?

I don't see this having any relevence at all to your issue.

I am sorry, but I am lost here... What are you talking about?

Are you talking about the Big Time closure? Telecom is not forcing you to stay with them. They already said they won't impose any restrictions or fees on anyone wanting to move to other ISPs.

I am locking this discussion as it seems it's already been talke about here. If this is not about the Big Time discussion then send me a PM to unlock this thread.
