According to online news groups, some small businesses have continued to pay several hundred dollars a month for full speed ADSL plans from Telecom because they were unaware it slashed the cost of business broadband in April – if customers moved to plans that capped download speeds at 3.5 megabits per second.
The price of business plans offering 512 kilobit per second upstream connection speeds and 10 gigabyte data caps was slashed from more than $900 per month to $71, excluding gst, but higher-priced full-speed plans that offer download speeds of up to 8 megabits per second have not yet been withdrawn.
This quote is taken from this article on Stuff (and from the newspaper).
I am pretty sure they are talking about this discussion here on Geekzone: "Telecom Overcharging ADSL by $400 a month!".
This is not nice - but we can't expect niceties from the mainstream media. But overseas the more traditional newspapers, including The New York Times, link to bloggers and other websites.
I also think this is disrespectful to the original poster on this thread, because his findings are being used by someone else, without attribution.
