Telstraclear customers were warned and they got what they were promised when the internet service provider lifted data traffic caps at the weekend.
Residential customers were offered unmetered access to the web from 6pm Friday until last night. But they were also warned that the extra demand could mean some customers experienced slower than normal connection speeds.
Post hoc, ergo propter hoc. Unfortunately up until this pilot, the Internet had been universally and chronically responsive without flaw. A more cynical person than myself might hint that this test was designed to establish good reason for data caps and metering usage.
