2 degrees: don't you hate when someone steals your data :)?

 

 

 

I've just signed up for 2 degrees fiber, and would love to have rollover data :)

I guess the OP means the 80GB plans?  But yeah, my first thought was: I don't think it would make sense given they offer unlimited for $20 extra.

Hi sxz,

 

I'm afraid we don't roll over data for broadband (as it is a different kind of situation to mobile), but as those above have pointed out, why not go with Unlimited? Then you don't have to worry about data at all, and can use as much as you want/need/can :)

 

Unlike some other ISPs, our unlimited is truely unlimited, no connection-pooling, artificial rate limiting or anything silly like that, just broadband as fast as your connection can handle.

 

 

 

Cheers

When you get fibre, 80 GB is never enough. Go unlimited. smile

It is until you get a faster connection. 

 

Data expands to fill the time available, as you will discover.  wink

Unless the house is vacant for 90% of the month, I dont see how that is possible.

Which 'other ISPs'? Pretty much all ISPs seem to make this claim that they aren't like the 'others' who all do throttling or some other form of traffic management.
I think only Vodafone do any sort of traffic management these days.

I just find it interesting that data on a mobile can be differentiated from data at home.  I would have thought mobile data had higher overheads.

 

If I pay for my data on my phone they think I should keep it, but if I pay for my data at home they think I shouldn't.  

 

I'm not surprised, just interested :).  Makes me view their ads in a different light.

 

If they did go for rollover, and if I did use way more data as everyone says I will, then I'll need to go to unlimited anyway - no harm no foul.  but it would be nice for those times that we do go over our limit to be given the flexibility of rollover given most months we are under 80gb.

 

 

 

BTW - just moved from Vodafone to 2 degrees for the sole reason of rollover data on my mobile.  Just had my first month roll over - its great!

 

BTW x2 - 2 degrees fiber install was very fast - via UFF - it took 18 days from whoa to go including 2 site visits and new fiber install.  Very happy so far.
