TelstraClear extends 25Mbit/s fibre plan to Wellington, Kapiti

From today, customers around the capital join TelstraClear Christchurch subscribers in having access to 25Mbit/s fibre plans. It’s New Zealand’s fastest broadband.

It’s New Zealand’s fastest broadband, but with a couple of catches.

First, the price: $229 a month. The data cap is a generous 120GB, after which extra data costs $2.95 for a 2GB pack. By TelstraClear's own admission, the cost has limited Christchurch sign-ups to a mere 20 customers.

The other catch is upload speed: a relatively modest 2Mbit/s.

Coverage maps and plans are on TelstraClear’s website.

Today, the telco also announced a 100Mbit/s upgrade for its 80,000 cable customers across Kapiti, Wellington and Christchurch. The $10 million upgrade will take place by March 2010.

I think its worth noting that this service is provided by a cable subscription, not new generation fibre optic.

This isn't the first time they have announced this service. It's like their PVR, long hyped but seemingly also a long way from being delivered.

Yes I got sick of waiting for there PVR, signed up to mysky Hdi of which my years contract finishes in April. I would be surprised if they launch before then. Sky is so good no probs with them

Believe it when I see it. I was surprised that Freeth wasn't sacked over Tauranga unplugged. You recall they spent millions rolling out a cellphone network in Tauranga but didn't sign a contract with Vodafone to carry the data traffic to other parts of the country. What a bunch of incompetent clowns.
