adamj: That's not 'optimizing' thats just attaching additional content.
adamj: I know for a fact that the Air NZ and Trade Me sites were built by those respective companies, it's not vodafone "optimising" their normal sites.
Filterer: Obviously this is separate to the intentionally wap designed sites such as m.trademe.co.nz that you refer to adamj
freitasm: Well done Vodafone - this is what I was expecting for some mobile data goodness!
From July 28, customers will be able to surf the net, download music and games and play on their favourite sites without committing to a fixed monthly data contract.
To make sure customers can take advantage of the new rate, Vodafone’s network is optimising websites for viewing on customers’ mobiles – a first for New Zealand.

You told us you didn't want a walled garden... so it's gone. No more walled garden. Instead, everything is charged at this rate (the only exceptions being Vodafone Compass and Sky Mobile TV). That's not to say future offers won't be zero rated but the model has been reset to be more like the online experience on the regular internet in that you pay for traffic not for content.
PaulBrislen: Hi all, sorry... bathing children.
jesseycy: Hey, who says we want the walled garden to be gone???? Not us, I don't recall any posts to that effect!
In fact, I think most users would agree with me regarding:
1. The new data plan is GREAT! And also...
2. Having Vodafone Live, Bebo, Facebook, and YouTube fenced in as a walled garden and free to browse and watch would be great!!!!
