Is it true you burgers have unlimited data plans? Why the fuck does New Kekland charge like fifty fucking dollars for 3 gigs? Anyone who pays for that is basically getting skullfucked. It's even worse it third world countries where they charged me K325 (USD108) for 9 gigs.
true poland/indonesia bro. For the last six months I didn't have a mobile plan so I was just hungry for wifi whenever I was out. I just decided today to reactivate my mobile plan because me not having a local mobile plan made things very inconvenient as I had just come home from travelling. I was paying like 20 dollars (11 euros) for 500mb of data, 30 mins talking and unlimited text. Now I'm just hoarding prepay. at least it doesn't expire every month
>mfw you will never have american mobile data plans
I have always said NZ was getting exploited terribly.
In most of the US, we have avoided such things, so far. But I expect the telecoms will eventually find a way to sneak in caps, because it allows less effort for the same profit, and opens ways to charge more for what we already have.
But the way NZ is outright criminal, imho.
Why do caps even exist? And why haven't they risen considering how much the internet has changed in the past decade and requires more?
People actually watch youtube and shit on their phones in foreign countries but it's just impossible to do here regularly
I thought you meant USD, not NZD. Nevermind...
And for the topic, I think internet services in general should be free. And people should only pay, if they want to have a better speed.
Of all the things I never would have expected that megebytes flying through the air would be costly. I could play devils advocate and defend the mobile companies here that wireless long range technology is expensive but I'm not educated enough to argue. I mean I can understand that EVERYTHING else here is expensive cause it's a tiny isolated island but c'mon son.
>Why do caps even exist?
1.to make more money
2.You have no real competition in Australia
3.You're relatively isolated and its actually fairly expensive for isps to service certian parts of aus, even if they're highly populated due to how remote they are from the rest of the country, meaning that they cant just rely on copper lines, they have to lay cable underseas to service that area.
If I can trust google.......
Doesn't wikipedia have this thing where they don't charge anything to access wikipedia on mobile in third world countries? Unfortunately we're not third world so eh
I get 8GB for 39₪ (~10$) on a discount plan for soldiers. Supposedly I get to keep the plan when I get out of the army but I will probably get Jewed out of it.
My plan before it was 3GB for 69₪, but there are probably better civillian plans.
I feel you're pain roobrew. When Snapchat introduced all their shitty stories timelines whatever, I was wondering what the fuck were they thinking? All I want to do is check my friends shit. Thankfully they have an option to disable it now

REMOVE EARTHQUAKE WHEN?
>tfw my uni gives me unlimited at 900 Mbps down 900 Mbps up
this is off course mobile only right mr dubs man?
The only internet that has limits here is the mobile one (I pay like 10 USD for 30 GB). I don't think there's any company offering limited stationary internet connection. You can have unlimited Internet with 20Mb per second for about 15 USD a month.
oh boy that's dirt cheap. Here in NZ when you sign up for an ISP they really push you to buy the unlimited plan because it's more convenient for them plus it's cheaper. However they do offer limited ones but it's not worth it like NZD 75 for 80 gig cap and NZD80 for unlimited something like that.
Really I don't use my mobile data a lot so for five fucking euros a month for unlimited is pretty godtier, just so I can browse 4chan and read news when I'm out.
Your internet is godtier. Third imperial empire re-colonisation when?
It makes me feel envious
Duh of course I have a reasonable internet plan. This is for the discussion of mobile data only. My fault I should've made it clearer in the description
>And for the topic, I think internet services in general should be free. And people should only pay, if they want to have a better speed.
It's funny because here municipality broadband is usually ten times faster than what private telecoms can provide.
