I wish it's going to be sooner that NZ will have unlimited 4g data plan for nzd50 a month like what USA AT&T has.

If anything the more devices gain mobile internet capability, the less incentive to offer more data. In the coming years I'd expect to see data consumption increase while the costs remain static if not also increase with consumption. Or you end up with the crappy fake 'unlimited' plans you have in US and elsewhere.

Can you get 200Mbps in the US on mobile network like you can here? I've seen results of a CAT6 handset on Vodafone NZ network hitting 200Mbps. If you give people unlimited for $50 per month, you will kill speeds. Already see the impact in some RBI areas where 3G speeds have dropped due to "cheap" high data plans.





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
