The speed is not so bad, it's the data caps that are the killer [which is what happened, cap hit, data down to dialup for S.F.].
I bought an iPad for my wife for Mother's Day. Within two days, we'd maxed our 60gb data plan. Guess Apple hadn't thought that the tight fisted telcos would ever cap data. Apple had not encountered the tight buisnesses in NZ. The idea of data caps probably never crossed their minds. Guess you can't use an iPad the way it was meant to be used [in New Zealand].
NZ broadband is a joke.

Mr Fry should pause for a moment to remember how shockingly inept the internet providers are in the UK.
I moved to the UK in March 2011 and it took me 12 weeks to get connected - apparently this is "standard" with BT. The internet is slow here compared to the experience I had at home in February.
My one gripe about in the internet in NZ is the prohibitive cost. That is the only issue I have - the service is far superior to anything I, and those I know, have experienced in the UK.

Yeah about time, the broadband speeds in NZ truly backward and abysmal and telecom! I had a 2gb cap and exceeded it by 20gb at 2 bucks per meg so I had a bill of around 2k from them, nice company! hey if the outside world can get to vodafone.co.nz and telecom.co.nz check out NZ mobile phone rates, you'll cringe, I hope Stephen Fry can shed some light on how expensive it is...except for a big mac. (can't fail that big mac test) $5 for a loaf of vogals, $400-$600 for a pair of Diesel Jeans, $3 small for a bottle of water, 36 days of sunshine a year, green ..... sure it rains alot, environmentally green jesus christ no.
