If you live in Auckland, check out My Account > Extra Stuff.

Look for "Get the Next Big Thing!"

If you can see it, there is a spot available for you to upgrade to these new packages.

Applogies if its not there for you. We are working towards making more spots available soon.

And how about changing from naked dsl to next big thing? When I last called the CSR said I would have to pay a new telecom install and then move that to next big thing, and then close the naked connection, which is not acceptable to me to be paying over $100 in costs to telecom.

Also since both pairs in the cable that goes to the house are in use it would be a nightmare to coordinate the installs.

How's the "Free Downloading between 1am and 7am" going to work? surely that'll be capped to nz only or really slow speeds so people can't take advantage via torrents etc.

"going to work"?

It's been standard for the regular DSL plans for months already.

Well I wouldn't know as I'm on Telstra Cable. I've never used slingshot and was more concerned with what sort of speeds would be avaliable during those 1am-7am periods and whether they cap people downloading a lot of content.

You didn't ask about being capped; you asked how "how's the [...] going to work".

To which I gave an answer. (The same as it's been working for months.)

I wasn't being rude in my initial post. If I was in the second one, it was because I "joined in".

If you'd asked the question directly, I'd have answered it directly:
Neither is supposed to be the case, but it seems as if some (if not all) customers are being shaped in some way.

We are still working through nDSL upgrades to the Next Big Thing - don't have any answers yet.
