I'm currently in the process of deciding upon a new internet connection for my apartment and the NZ Connections Wiki is being a great help, however beyond type/price/speed/data there is not much more information.

For example, I heard on Media7 last week that Orcon has a deal with TVNZ, so that their shows are provided to the customer for free and faster.

This kind of information could be very handy as it sweetens the deal and could ultimate help make the final decision of who to go with. So could any such information like this now be included in the wiki? (i.e. usenet newsgroups that a provider supplies, any gaming servers they run, websites that are part of the "free" data cap, contract lengths, zero data cap periods of time during the day,  etc etc....)

edit: yeah, I see now... if you hover the cursor over it the details pop up

The tvnz player won't start if you're using ad blocking to block certain addresses from loading.
