With all this talk of new plans and speeds, it will be interesting to see what Woosh can come up with  to keep us punters. I have to admit that the speed is highly variable and unpredictable, hardly ever 1.0Mbps - usually 250Kbps. Now with the new vodafone and telecom mobile data deals, the options are certainley stacking up...

Any ideas whats in the pipeline???

Apparently IPTV is on the cards, but that may not happen until they get WiMax up and running. I'm not sure how things have progressed over the last couple of months, but last I heard the government's unfavourable announcement on radio spectrum renewal rights threw a spanner in the works, so it may be too little too late by the time Woosh actually builds a WiMax network.

I suspect that their acquisition of an ADSL provider was an attempt to avoid haemorrhaging of their customer base while they sort out their spectrum renewal rights.

Woosh is in serious do-do. The announcement of laying off 30 more people after laying off 20 some 6 months earlier, plus the "resignation" (lol) of the CEO and departure of senior management should tell you that the ship is sinking. So how are they going to afford to put in WiMax? Answer is it's a pipe dream designed to make the public think they are still a viable company. If WiMax even happens it will be a long drawn out affair and many will have to wait years for their existing equipment to be replaced. Quicksilver is obvioulsy to provide an alternative to potential customers who are out of coverage instead of loosing their to Telecom and IHug. But I'd think twice about Woosh. With all those people gone their support is not going to get any better.
