The unlimited model is unsustainable. The americans are only just figuring this out. Unlike us however, some of their caps are at the 250gb mark....even Aus you can get 400gb - 1tb plans.

There's nothing wrong with caps - if the level and pricing work.

Most would agree our levels are not high enough for the price we pay.

I don't like the guy who goes on to say "as customers find out more about how much they are using they will begin to use less of it" aside from piracy that's not a good way to go about treating your customers, forcing them to cut down on internet use and stifling the industry.

So far this year I have seen NZ push forward whilst other countries slide back! It will be strange to see NZ having respectable tech in the world without having to play major catch up, of course there is still something better bu it's great to see telecom trialing 4G all ready, my guesstimate would see 4G implemented between late 2013-2014
