We have to remember that is a flat rate price, with no stupid tiny megabyte limits. I bet you that if telecom offered a service of say 256kbps or 512kbps with no limits for say $60-$75 per month there would be heaps of signups despite the price. Telecom / TelstraClear / Ihug are blind to not be able to see this market.

I second that Ashley. But there's still the micro-outages that they need to get sorted.

What has to be remebered is that the majority of NZ traffic is to/from the other side of the world. The majority of US traffic is inside one the country.
