If the pricing gets anywhere near that level, will Telecom be forced to match it?
sbiddle: Very interesting indeed.. Backs up a rumor I heard before Xmas about the price point.
I'll put my non existant credibility on the line with my prediction as to how Telecom will combat ULL and Vodafone
** FREE BROADBAND **
That's right folks - pay $50 for your line rental and get free broadband.
juha: I don't see how Telecom can do that, unless it gets out of wholesale DSL completely.
mailmonster: I wonder how big is the home zone and how it will can be measured. I think it will be useless if it is less than 5km. Also, how are they going to know? maybe by measuring which cell tower you are using? well? i live in a place where i can take up signals from 5 cell towers jumping... does it mean that it has to be covering all those areas?
juha: In Germany, the Zu Hause service is set up with a two-kilometre radius. That's not to say the NZ service will be the same of course.
juha: Hmm, wouldn't a 20km radius mean most of Auckland was covered (40km diameter circle)?
