Broadband product regulations on the way
Wed, 05 Sep 2012 1:43p.m.
The fiercely competitive broadband market is going to be regulated to make sure people know exactly what they're buying.
Communications Minister Amy Adams has told officials to start working on "enhanced disclosure requirements" for the total cost of services, broadband speed, data caps and contract lengths.
"As the ultra-fast broadband network is rolled out around the country, consumers will need a clear foundation on which to consider and compare broadband offerings," she said on Wednesday.
"It's important that consumers are provided with accurate information about competing products and are able to make informed choices."

I second that - Just because half the country live in one city doesn't mean there's no need to supply the rest of the country. Also, I'm sick to death of ISP's being allowed to oversubscribe their lines, resulting in periods of the day when the internet is completely inaccessible. If you paid full price for a Gym membership which thousands of other people purchased as well, then were told there was only a single treadmill and 2 sets of weights for everybody to share, you'd demand your money back. Apparently ISP's are allowed to do this.
