Clazziquai:
While other countries are continually lowering their prices. The price of internet in New Zealand is constantly increasing. Which is totally unfair. LOL Oh but that's right, having internet in New Zealand is a privilege.

@Ragnor
Thanks for that post, that was really insightful.


it is?  how so?

taking Telecom as a benchmark (since they hold the largest market share),  2 years ago I was on the Pro advanced plan, which was $100 for 30GB.  then I was migrated to Pro which was $80 for 40GB. 
10GB More data for $20 less

and more recently the overage price has changed from $20/GB down to $2 per GB.

Now you might still think that is expensive, but it certianly doesn't amount to a price increase, which is what you claimed.

Clazziquai: Paying $60 for a measly 20gb... is a bit excessive and if I upgrade to $80 for 40gb. It becomes more expensive. woot!....

SteveON: This comes up too often...

NZ'ers spend all their lives looking outside in ore at the rest of the world. Be content at what you have. For a country with the same population as an average city in Australia we are doing BLOODY well!

The Price is going UP??! Since when? Did I miss something and inflation went backwards?
