What does that mean for me? Well I'd estimate that Xbox Live constitutes about 10GB of usage for me each month. That is, I download an Xbox original game, a few arcade games, play some online games, and download a few videos. Oh, not to mention the game demo's which can be up to 2GB each.
So this is a huge deal for me. I only wish our ISPs over here were able to throw the same kind of support behind our online services to help make them grow. It's one thing for TelstraClear to offer free usage on their own website, but we really need our ISPs to be working with Xbox, and iTunes like I previously talked about in a thread. These services won't grow as fast as they should unless people feel like they're able to buy the content without getting stung a second time by missing out on those precious few gigabytes on their data cap.
Come on, lets demand some action from our ISPs! Kiwi's deserve to use these online services to their fullest potential...and we can't do that if we're paying through the nose for them - TWICE!
