Hey guyz,
I have seen a  few post stating that tvnzondemad content uses akamai servers so count as local traffic which is free, and i have also seen a few post saying the content does not count as local but as national so is not free. Just wanted to know does anyone know for sure if tvnzondemand content counts as local free traffic? The xnet helpdesk seems to have no idea (they're normally very helpful)
Cheers

You have to remember that the akamai servers XNET uses are actually Callplus's (Slingshot) meaning that the traffic is national not local. If you know about the APE and WIX (Internet Connection Exchanges) then this is how Xnet connects to Callplus's Akamai servers.

Hopefully I didn't confuse you. Feel free to ask more questions Laughing

If it is on akamai then I'm fairly sure its a no. I'm not currently at home on my xnet connection so I can't confirm that for you Wink

It will be national traffic for sure but you will still pay for it unfortunately

I don't think it would make sense to use Akamai for a national-only platform. Traffic runs through FXNetworks for TVNZ On Demand

From what I gather, TVNZ uses FX Networks to connect to the WIX and APE and connections are made from there
