Telecom Encouraging Uploads

November 1, 2009 – 2:31 pm

Citing growth in photo-sharing and social media sites, Telecom have announced they won’t charge for upstream traffic. That is to say, upload photos and movies all you like until the end of January when such traffic counts again toward your monthly bill. I’ve long believed that symmetric bandwidth is critical if we don’t want to be a nation of passive consumers, so I’m chuffed to see a big telco support this. Fingers crossed for my ISP, Orcon, to do the same!
