Super Fast Broadband – Now the fine print starts to appear

I talked yesterday about the announcement from Telecom that they will be offering a service using VDSL2 technology to allow customers huge increases in broadband speed from around 5mbps to 50 mbps for downloads and from around 0.7 mbps to 20mbps upload.

I also talked about whether these speeds will be theoretical maximums or reality.

Well those questions are still unanswered, but it now appears that the new service will attract a premium cost.

Now, they have said it will be small, but how many other \”extras\” there might be. Will we have to buy a new modem? Will there be minimum contracts.

I wonder what the increase on current plans will be? 10%, 20%

What will the market accept to get these increased speeds
