come on telecom xtra, get rid of data caps. data caps are like skytv saying, only watch 10 hours of television a monh and after that you  can only watch free to air channels. Here is the report from the nz herald:

What do you need unlimited data for? What are you going to do with it?

You can't compare it Sky that is totally different.

The NZ Herald is no longer a credible source in my opinion.

Kelly do you actually think about half the stuff you post here? Why only demand this from xtra? Every ISP has data caps. Takeaway data caps and the ISPs open themselves up to some huge drops in revenue. They are there to make a profit. Remove the caps and they would have to put the monthly fees up by a huge amount to have any chance of recouping the expenses that limitless plans would cause.

They you could offer you an uncapped 12Mbps plan for $20 a month and you still would not be happy.

Why the need for uncapped broadband? Are you running an online pirating ring?

Also dont ever compare broadband to sky. Geez how could be be so stupid as to make that connection......

Kelly2626 I don't think many users on GZ are interested on your views anymore

You need your white coat back on and the straps done up very tight

Ever head of the saying “Think before you act”??

Out of 36 posts how many contain something that is founded on fact? I am yet to find one.

Isn't it obvious to anyone yet that kelly2626 is a troll, winding you all up?

Always posting some small, vauge message and no doubt laughing as you all reply. He/she obviously has no real interest in the posted topic - Where are his/her replies?

nzbnw:Wow this is like gang up on kelly2626 week

You've got to admit thats some of Kelly's posts are amusing. Unbelievably stupid but funny.

There are two types of people here at Geekzone, the regualr fixtures - the knowledgable ones and those who come seeking their help - a lot of these then become fegular fixtures. Then along comes Kelly and posts something ridiculous and will of course suffer ridicule from those regular fixtures

well google video is going to expand worldwide at a later date and I will probably use it to download television shows and other stuff it has on its site. Say a television show is 500MB for one episode, then i'll only be able to download 20 epsidoes of one television show per month with a 10GB cap. What if I wanted to download 10 television shows a month will all the episodes. It will use alot more than 10GB.And what if I wanted to use my internet connection for online multiplayer gaming, video chatting. 10GB will get used up very very fast.There are new technologies coming out every year like this new technology that will let you watch dvd quality movies online without having to download the movie and more technologies like video on demand and so onWith data caps you will not be able to enjoy these new technologies to the fullest. I have seen an overseas isp have different download caps for uploads and downloads so maybe isps could do this or like orcon, provide a top-up solution to top-up your data cap once it has been reached.
