Wondering what people using more than 100Gb per month are paying for their broadband, what provider they are with and what sort of traffic they are doing to generate that traffic, Domestic/International, P2P, FTP, etc?

[Moderator edit (MF): replaced "Gb" with "GB"]

I pay NZ$209 a month for TelstraClear cable 120GB/month plan.

Note this is the 25Mbps/10Mbps plan pricing, although I am connected on a 100Mbps/10Mbps service because I was part of their trial.

That speedtest must have cost you a fair bit, should really try selling some of that bandwidth :) . Oh wait, you peer with Vocus so to be fair that's really more like national traffic and they wrangle it over the ditch for you.


100GB Maxnet FS/FS DSL
would normally be $129.00

This is what I am considering, though not for the masses rather to sell un-used capacity. Rather than offering a all you can eat or FREE offpeak where your connection is rate limited or your speeds are slow, going for a charging a small fee approach.

Only looking at taking on 50-100 residential users that are somewhat tech savvy as we are a business ISP that deal with techs that know to reboot a router, check the local network and do all that standard Level1/2 troubleshooting.

This is what I have come up with and taking trial users.

The "Cheap National" plan would also cover youtube as we class that as national on our network.

Let me know your thoughts.

$200 with TCL (DSL). Because of its "data block" system I often end up paying less than this.

We're only on a 40GB plan but our ISP does have a 100GB plan @ $219 per month inluding one VOIP line.
That's on their fibre at 15Mb/s down / 10Mb/s up.
