Hi Guys

Apparently there is some interesting article from nbr.co.nz about callplus and orcon

But sadly it is locked to subscription only? Grrrrr

Any information that can be shared?

I would suggest you purchase a subscription then you'll be able to read the article.

I don't think freitasm subscribes to the NBR, even if he did, sharing the info posted there would probably be against the terms and conditions of a NBR subscription.

So sharing general information is against their terms and conditions.. woah thats pretty intense.. they must have some good lawyers..
I would say reposting the article in its entirety is against their t&c's, discussing something thats on NBR on geekzone would be fine, id like to see them kick up a stink on that...

Discussing something would be fine. Reproducing the article wouldn't.

The reason NBR decide to go this way is because they do have some exclusive articles - and creating that content costs money, therefore subscriptions are one way to go.

No, I don't have a NBR subscription.

Also, I am changing the topic subject on this thread because "latest info" is not meaningful at all.

If people want discussions to be read and talked about then please use something descriptive.

If enough people don't subscribe to the NBRs pay model maybe they'll get the message and go back to how it was ... free ..
