Sorry about the bad wrap, you might need to cut and paste.


Quote:
"Wired Country CEO Neil Simmonds says the speed boost will apply to both
flat rate and volume-based plans. Wired Country is a wholesale broadband
provider in the south Auckland region and several ISPs have signed on to
resell the service, including ICONZ, Ihug, Wave Internet, The Packing Shed
and Watchdog. Customers at ICONZ, for example, will pay $99 for a
256Kbit/s, flat rate service. That will be "upsized" to 2.5Mbit/s."

Trust me, it _is_ nice (ADSL and ISP fees combined, unlike NZ pricing)
