raytaylor: Oh yes, you can now get 120kbit/s? or something like that. However it is still minor details that complicate the question at hand and still isnt enough to solve an issue that free national traffic would cause


last i looked/listened it was 70-something, it could be more though now (I wasn't listening very hard and it was a little while ago).

re: free national, there's no easy way for joe-blogs user to know what's free and what's not, how can an isp have a selling feature that >95% of the customer base would have trouble understanding. and most likely would get wrong.

Specifying services/sites such as isky/tvnz online etc though is far less confusing, and that's what you're seeing isp's doing now.

I'm guessing if we resorted back to smoke signals we may be able to achieve this mans goal...

This old chestnut eh? It's a marketing problem as much as a technical problem. I'm all for lower prices on local traffic, but people struggle with it. Really really struggle with it.

We get free national traffic on our fibre :-)
