Why does Dunedin get 1000/500 unlimited + phone line for $95 month while everyone else pays $130 for 100/50 unlimited + phone line?

Except that other internet providers outside of Dunedin are matching gigatown pricing for 1000 down (might not be 500 up).

But they're not paying the 30/10 pricing for that.

That is because UFF brought out 1000/20 pricing to compete with Gigatown at Residential Pricing.

Love the marketing hype naming it 'UltraMax' !!!

Soon to be superseded by SuperUltraMax, and then by MegaUltraMax or SuperUltraMaxPro !

Really, who thinks these things up ;-)

I assume they get their marketing ideas from feminine hygiene products.
"Supermax - ideal for heavy flow (of data)"
