Hi All, This is my first post after many weeks reading the forumsSmile

 I am currently on the Woosh unlimited broadband plan and was wandering if any knows if Woosh will be providing a similar refund to that Telecom is going to give its customers who are on the unlimited plan? Link for Info. About Telecom Refund:http://jetstream.xtra.co.nz/chm/0,8763,204548-203090,00.html?nv=sd

None of the ISP's is under any obligation to do so - telecom's move was purely marketing related.

Also remember the ISP's pay a WHOLESALE price, whereas telecom refunded the entire RETAIL price.

The Woosh unlimited plan wasn't based on Go Large, it was their own plan and the refunds were for Go Large/the equivalent wholesale product.

Hmmm.....

I did ask myself this question, but have found no simularities between the quality of service of Xtra and Woosh products...

I had xtra Go-Large.....and it was rubbish.
I currently have Woosh Orbit Flat Rate.....and it is excellent.

I will have downloaded aprox 85gb by the end of this month, and I havent gone hard...
Cant complain about that.
Certainly wont ask for a refund.
And I wont be changing plan anytime soon.

It may not always be super fast, or reliable, but still delivers the best value to a large downloader like myself.
I could not get 85gb+ on any other plan for $50 a month

Nope. All is well is Woosh land.



Broadband:
Fast + QOS = limited quota, medium to high price
Fast + Unlimited = quality unreliable, medium price
Fast + QOS + Unlimited = very expensive

I beleive Telecom refunded it's wholesale customers aswell, but as you say they are not under any obligation to refund their customers.
