but because iconz doesn't per with
telstra, I use international and not 'national' and my pictures load
SLOWLY!!! *phones helpdesk to complain about slow browsing*
I'd freak. Whats T&T going to do to provide 'national' connectivity? Is
it only national if the remote ISP peers with T. Is national defined as
being within T's network only?
That sucks BIG time. Somebodys been playing with their calculator to
long and doesn't understand the internet to be able to make decisions
My thoughts alone.
All TelstraClear customers should write to their account manager seeking
an assurance that all of their traffic between sites in NZ will be
routed within NZ, and indicating that they will be looking seriously at
moving to an alternative supplier if such assurances are not forthcoming
or are not adhered to. If enough of their current customers do this,
TelstraClear might just get the message that they are likely to lose as
much or more revenue from current customers voting with their feet as
they will gain by forcing others to sign up.
After all, who would buy into or stay with a "those parts of New Zealand
TelstraClear connect to by commercial arrangements" deal if they can get
an "all of New Zealand" deal elsewhere.
