Typical. No less than 12 hours after I called to upgrade my broadband connection to TNBT, that Slingshot put out their newsletter to say newer better plans will be released very soon.

We're not upgrading NBT sorry - it's just our standard broadband plans (including nDSL)

Yes, the data cap has been increased. You'll also be able to get free off peak (slightly different hours of 2am to 8am) and data banking.

You have the option of a $9.95 credit towards an iTalk line or a $10 credit towards a Slingshot mobile plan.

Is the free off peak a seperate plan or is that part of the normal NDSL plan?
Does data banking include the included 25gig cap as well?

Krisando: 25GB is a petty amount. =\

Yeah 25GB would be a welcome upgrade form 15GB, but I might not change if off-peak has a cap now (which it might....)


Will have to wait and see.

Does "on-peak" go towards your monthly data?
