"Prices for circuits to the US, from both Australia and New Zealand, have just been reduced by 15 percent, bringing reductions over the last 18 months to more than 50 percent.
The new price for 5 Gbps of restored capacity represents around US28c (NZ41c) per gigabyte downloaded from the US. This has reduced by 86 percent from $US1.95 per gigabyte in December".
Has this impacted on the price ISPs charge us? No
This really pisses me off, especially with my ISP telstraclear just posting a good profit again. no bloody wonder. The Government needs to have a telecommunications pricing watchdog. Its total BS.
