antigrav:


>>, it cost to maintain a network


A small amount, look at the line service fee Telecom charges on your phone bill, ok that doesn't cover the international data we are talking about but this is not a major expense.




The separate fee on the phone bill covers your own cabling and jackpoints it has nothing to do with the rest of the network.

My question to Xtra/Telecum is, why release .....

.... the Go Large plan (thanks to to Telecum!).....

..... believe Xtra/Telecum aren't open to accept ....


Its Telecom not Telecum. Like with the "Telescum" remarks made by others, we won't tolerate that around here.

antigrav: The Woosh's flat rate plan, it's better than the go large plan in all ways, no down sides and speed seems ok.

Yep, that's what I've been hearing.  This week I recommended it to one of my mates.  He is a serious downloader who managed to leech 200GB out of XTRA during one month when their throttling wasn't working on a 2Mbps Flat Rate plan Money mouth

After leaving XTRA he moved to Slingshot where he has been for a year or more but has recently found that their bandwidth for everything (not just BT but even simple web browsing) has deteriorated to the point where it is no longer acceptable, or indeed even worthy to be called "broadband" Yell

3 days ago he moved to the Woosh flat rate plan and has noticed a HUGE improvement.  BT downloads are now running at around 450kbps which he is more than happy about.  This is something all you dissatisfied XTRA customers might want to take note of...

Vote with your feet and long may it last Cool

Somehow I dont think anyone that can suck 200GB in a month would be worthwhile having as a customer. I would bet that in a few months time his woosh service may deterioate as well.
