Just saw this in the Herald, and found an online version.  Telecom says "Contention is too crude a mechanism to use for proper service performance management".  Interesting comment.  I would have thought otherwise.

What do you guys think?

Here's the link:

Looks like a way of backing out of the set ratios that were previously in place.

Who knows... but this part puts me off.
Internet service providers that resell Telecom broadband, such as ihug and CallPlus, have objected to the new approach and said users were not getting any guarantees on minimum speeds. The ISPs have suggested the contention ratio of Telecom's new broadband plans, launched on April 2, is significantly higher than it used to be, up to 148:1.
