Even as a joke, this is why we can't have nice things.

To get the on account discount, does the phone account and internet account have to be in the same name or can I use my girlfriends phone account?

Nope just a mobile number that is not used on another connection for a discount, I use the discount off my work connection on my parents home line BB account

I am on the Vodafone 100GB (with free double data promo) and the night before the unlimited plans were introduced I noticed that my download speeds have been dramatically reduced.
Can you confirm if I should have been traffic shaped or should I not be traffic shaped like this unlimited plan on my current naked ADSL plan?

Thanks

Or you could take me up in Vodafone's black ops helo and I could put a few rounds through his window... :-)

I'll have to have a serious look at VDSL now! I'd much prefer fibre but according to Chorus there'll be non in my street until between July 2015 and June 2016, I have my doubts though.
