Ah yes, Trade me. The authoritative source on broadband.

While New Zealands infrastructure could certainly do with additional investment and upgrades, the US is hardly the beacon of light at times (see other forums about issues).

You realise the unbundling of local loop has nothing to do with the Internet speeds, and that it actually did not come into force yet?

I think you are referring to the Telecom move to "unleash", which was removing some limits in speed. But this is not unbudling at all.

In other news... global warming does not exist because an oil lobbist was on TV and he said it wasn't so!

o_0 What the hell are you on about?? You are going of topic.

I dont know why but i feel like i am getting in trouble for saying somthing i read on trademe and i dont know if it was real or not. Now that you all said trademe is [expletive removed] and they talk out of there *** i say it is not real and i do get some good news from trademe.

He's using irony - basically saying that believing something from a Trademe discussion involving technical stuff is the same as believing global warming doesn't exist when an oil company says it.

A bit off topic, but I really wonder how the mare human could causes global phenomena like global warming with burning fuel for around 150+ years.

It's really off topic, but sometimes I feel human thinks themselves some kind omnipotent.

Anyway, I'm not pro nor con for oil companies, they're no difference from diamond miners, just enjoying and maximizing their profit while they can.

What, 60GB a month in online gaming? Even 24/7, I highly doubt you'd be able to hit that amount. Most regular onliners I know have trouble hitting 10GB a month, and that includes browsing, downloads, etc.


Im talking about on the go large. With more than one gamer in the house.
