Telecom broadband plan caps speed, not data


For NZ$60 per month Telecom is now offering an ‘all you can eat’ broadband plan. However, they will throttle back speed in periods of high demand – 3 pm to 10 pm for downloads such as movies, music.

I think the concept is reasonable, but will the throttle back impact more general use such as for internet browsing, email and small downloads?

Not sure if I would want to make the trade-off.

Personally I find the pricing strategies in NZ poor and behind the times.
