myfullflavour:robertjpayne: According to several ISP's websites like onefibre or hd national bandwidth is "practically free".
Can someone please point me to where I can sign up for free national bandwidth?
Even peering at APE costs $$ in fees, equipment & layer 2 backhaul charges. And doing that alone doesn't get you into every substantial network (hello Telecom) in NZ.
http://hd.net.nz all their plans have free National Bandwidth.
