Kelly ring up the power company and ask if you can have free power for your lights or hot water cyclinder or maybe the oven

kelly2626: Well i still think vodafone should offer unlimited national data and offer a some NZ based gaming servers to play games like counters strike etc on.


Why should they? Seriously, reality called and wants you to go back to the crazy farm. People are looking for you.


Every post you have made so far seems to be whinging on about VF not doing this thing or that thing or its a complaint about something not working the way YOU want it to work

He probably HAVE too much time playing counterstrike, and want to do it while he is at work on his laptop playing it wirelessly and not working...

i don't know but pretty much all his topics are about VF not doing this, VF not doing that, Xtra not doing this blah blah blah...



I second that he should get a reality check, there is no such thing as free lunch mate, you got to work hard to deserve the right benefit. At the moment, you haven't got much appreciation from many of us here from the look of it.. keeping this up will easily get yourself ignored.

It seems to me that this kid is just asking for unlimited data on a connection card. Why do the rest of you find this unlikely to happen, considering that it is already mentioned in previous posts how Sprint, Verizon currently offer this in the US.
I have had unlimited evdo for the last year in NYC at $59.99 US Unlimited. Soon they will be rolling our Rev A, so I can get similar upload speeds. Anyway, point is as this service becomes more competitive carriers will offer unlimited use at a set price, whether you are in Blighty, US, NZ or Timbucktoo. Unless there is something radically different about how telco's operate in NZ that I am not aware off.

How about:

New York City: Area: 785 sq km
Population: 8 million

New Zealand: Area: 269,000 sq km
Population: 4.2 million

The difference in amount of cell towers and infrastructure required is enormous.
We have over the 300 times the land area, which is predominantly hilly (our plains are usually no more than tens of kilometres across), and only half the population.

Cost per user to deliver these services would have to be astronomical compared to just this one state.
