well with hundreds of people complaining in this forum and other forums about the slow download speed of xtra's go large plan,isn't it time for xtra to have another plan tailored for heavy downloaders and doesn't have managed bandwidth?

On the 'go large' plan i am downloading between 20-25kbps with http downloads. I can download about 90mb per hour between 12am-4pm.So i would be able to download about 1440mb of data between these times daily.

Over a period of 30days that would equal 43.2GB. Now i would rather download at 100-300kbps,so i think telecom should change it's current 'go express' plan from a 2gb data cap to a 50gb data cap and not have the bandwidth managed and once a user reaches a data cap they're lowered to 64kbps until the rest of the month.

Because unfortunately i don't think telecom has the network capacity to offer unlimited data yet. hopefully telecom upgrades their network to be able to handle unlimited data over the next few years.this is the only reason why 'go large' users are getting slow speeds.

Hundreds of people??!? In this forum too?!!? I'd like to see where... other forums I could accept (like Telescum (who will still complain if Telecom made broadband 5c per TB and free landlines) and gameplanet) but there has hardly been hundreds here. 

And to answer the other part - there are plans, they are called the pro plans (see Xtras site for details).

Data isn't free.

/me smells a troll.

Seriously, JAMMAN doesn't work for Telecom. You guys should know better than to being so confrontational with the moderators in this forum. And accusing people around is not really the best way to participate in a community.

There was a discussion about false advertising. Back on topic here, which is not about advertising.

Well perhaps a moderator should know how to politely be able to point a newbie to the correct forum ?

Perhaps a new person such as yourself should learn and grasp things before you sling accusations about people around. I also suggest you read the forum usage gudelines, read all posts in a topic before posting, search for threads that may already answer your questions and remain on topic.

And I really don't work for Telecom. Even if I did, I'm on Vodafone anduse TelstraClear Cable at home they wouldn't be overly happy about that.
