Hi
I have a question regarding the term of "local network traffic"
Im on fusion torrent plan and is the tv one video on demand included in local traffic? or national traffic?
Thanks.

TVNZ On Demand isn't free local traffic. Anything provided by Akamai is as far as i know, local eg: iTunes downloads, Apple movie trailers.
There isn't really an easy way to tell whether it's local traffic. If you're downloading from an international .com but the download is going full-speed, it's probably Akamai hosted and xnet has a direct link.

Unfortunatily its national which isnt free even thought they dont need to pay for pipe bandwidth. But when freeview over the internet is released then it will be free im shure. They will stream it to every exchange. So if thats what you where thinking about then you will be sweet but overwise tvnz on demmand is national bandwidth which is charged for.
