Stats NZ have released their latest ISP survey results.
We still have data caps, and they are still relatively low.
The results show that 1% of of homes and businesses have no caps, 2% have >50GB cap and 28% have 20-50 GB cap.
For comparison in the April-June 2011 quarter the average amount of data used (not the cap, but used) in Australia was 15.7 GB per month per fixed line subscriber. (47 GB over the 3 months).
I would argue that a cap of under 50 GB is not really broadband – but I tend to be a bit more demanding than most. Thus by my measure only 3% have a decent cap where they can use the internet without thinking about the consequences of data usage.
Those Australian 1 TB consumer plans are looking quite nice – I wish we had those here.
