Why are our data caps so low?

New Zealand seems to have the lowest data caps on its Internet in the developed world. Recently, InternetNZ commissioned me to write a report about this. My brief was to go round the Internet industry and ask people for their views, and specifically ask them why, if our expensive submarine cable is the answer to our high data caps, don’t we at least have free onshore Internet traffic?

The results are quite interesting. You can read the report here. InternetNZ is asking for comments on the report – please send them some if you have any.

  1. You blocked me on twitter because of a technical discussion of ISP pricing?

    Seriously?
