Flip costs me $70 a month.
For this I get adequate ADSL, phone line, calls to all NZ, ditto mobiles, overseas calls, etc etc. See Flip's site if you want to know more. Also caller ID, and voicemail. And its all over copper.
Really, why would I want (or pay for) more??? I'm not at all interested in downloading HD porn, thank you.
you have answered your own question
but don't be surprised if the price goes up in the years to follow as more people go to UFB there are less people paying to help upkeep the copper network.
