Clearly go large is not meeting your speed requirements

Stay there for uncapped usage but capped speed its that simple

well the thing is that if i change plan i have a cap and my speed will be the same.... If you recommend a ISP  to me i will have a good look at it. But it will need to be like 30gb + i know there are some plans out there that do it. But also i am not made out of money -.-"

Yup, it gets slower and slower, I'm planning to wait till everyone except me left Go Large

It's just inconvinient that changes plan might causes internet outage, my wife virtually live in trademe

Why not go for the free lunch while you're at it?

> well the thing is that if i change plan i have a cap and my speed will be the same

My understanding is that Go Large is heavily speed managed so if you move off it your speed should improve subject to your line conditions

> I download about 60gbs a mouth

I presume the reason Go Large is speed managed is to protect other broadband users plugged into the same DSLAM as you from having the backhaul pretty much soaked by 60 gigs going to one user.

Perhaps Telecom, or Vector, or Telstra, or Voda (after unbundling) should spend a few mil running additional backhaul to the node so you can pay them sixty bucks a month for unlimited high speed internet? What was the figure going around - $200 a metre to lay fibre? and that's with no operating costs. I'll be investing in that deal. No, not really.

>But it will need to be like 30gb +

for what it's worth xnet.co.nz offer full speed down/128K up 30 gigs for about $65, which is about what you're paying

Yes and Telecom / Xtra refunded Go-Large customer because they where not happy with the service, and gave you the option to migrate to another plan.

Your choice, but seeing the amount of data you use I don’t think your getting such a raw deal.

If you want to use 60GB per month, then you should pay for it accordingly.

Exactly, if I remember correctly - there was a maximum of 3 months credit given out for users given on Go Large and they also gave the option of leaving the 12 month contract as well.

There are options that allow you to use 60GB or more, however be prepared to pay for it.

It didn't get that far by memory, however it was for applying the filtering to all traffic, not just peer to peer (24/7) traffic.

After all, don't make user as bad guy, it was Telecom who offered unlimited service and same company ask customers to leave and kicking staying customers worse and worse every day with slower speed.

It is ISP who actually blocks development of this country internet industry for their immediate profit.

No objection to company must make a profit, however is it too much for NZ/AUS companies to have long term vision?

As previously discussed, the said internet provider offered a credit and also offered to waive the disconnection fees incurred for breaking the 12 month contract. That plan does not exist for new users/users not on the plan already.

Users certainly have the option of changing and should consider it, if they are experiencing slow performance.
