richms: Comparing pricing with australia isnt really that useful because they are second only to NZ for obscenely priced underperforming internet connections.
Friend has some rellies in the UK, one on virgin "fiber optic" at their shop which is really cable, and one that has adsl2+ at their house. Both pay less than I do per month before I even add on any data (well one is about the same) and they dont have any hard caps like we do. They do say they will contact you if you go over your cap, but we have blitzed that by 100s of gigs most month and they have heard nothing about it.
Someone should arrange some sort of protest or something.
I think an easier way is to just leave the country to be honest. I plan to in a few years unless things get a lot better here.
Ragnor: Plenty of issues for local ISP's to deal with that impact pricing:
- Wholesale port cost
- National backhaul cost
- International transit cost
- Lack of scale to spread fixed costs over, the largest NZ ISP's are tiny in comparison to international ones.
