What about uploading and dowloading gigabytes of data from cloud storage? This will not be slowed?

Yep, migration to unlimited from 500GB took place overnight. The Customer Zone and My Vodafone usage meter/usage tracker may look a little odd, but you can still keep tabs on how much you're using if curious.

Mine now says All DSL Max Unlimited. Sounds pretty rad to me.

freitasm: Does traffic management apply to cable offers? And if so is there a summary of what is the traffic management?

Also, where are the prices without term contract?




Traffic management has not changed on this new plan from what it always was. Its just more clearly stating the oblivious as people are 100% more likely to "abuse".


Interesting - so you are saying that the non-unlimited plans P2P can already get de-prioritised? Not sure if I've ever seen that documented.

Read your contract and the need to know on the webpage. Its been there for ever.

You mean this?

Traffic Management
Vodafone does not have any traffic management in place for Ultra Fast Broadband
80GB or 150GB plans powered by Cable. For Unlimited Data we have a P2P traffic
management policy in place which may influence peer to peer broadband
performance if the network is congested as we prioritise other user traffic.
Visit vodafone.co.nz/unlimited-data-terms for more information.


Seems to imply the opposite to me :)

There has always been a side note about P2P. Its just more highlighted as it appears now.
It used to blanket all our plans. It must have been moved to highlight unlimited and the others are let free to do what ever.

Commercial as it states: selling bandwidth to third parties or running an Internet Service Provider (but not limited to)
Tell me are you doing any of those?
