Story in stuff.
250 kpbs sounds not much faster then the old dial up days. I can get about 12 Mbps on national data at present.
Guessing it's average through put per user, So how much difference would it make?
Could stuff up streaming tv services, if to many people try to watch at once, if is the case.
In christchurch if people go to fibre, it's a lost customer to Chorus, as enable has contract here, guessing they're trying to make people change products. If mine slows to dial up, I'll ditch it altogether and just go to mobile, just have to go without youtube etc.
