Received this email from iinet this morning. This is for my Home3 account.

Great news, we've added more download quota to your Home3 plan at no extra cost, so you'll now have even more room to move online.

Here's a closer look at your upgrade:

old quota new quota
peak off-peak peak off-peak
30GB 30GB 50GB 50GB

But wait, there's more...

We've also upped your shaped speed to 128kbps, (that's double what you're used to), and all the other great features of your plan remain the same. You don't need to worry - this upgrade is completely free.

I have a faint suspicion this has something to do with their newly announced IPTV product with FetchTV (https://www.iinet.net.au/customers/iinews/news_0410.html#fetchtv) not that I will probably be using IPTV but thanks anyway iinet.

Hmmm...I wonder what happens if you switch back to a Home3 plan now. I'm on Home4, and wouldn't mind saving some money by dropping to a lower plan for the same quota.

Is yours Naked DSL?

I think these upgrades are only for bundled ADSL2+ plans (I'm on the NDSL home3 and didn't get one of these emails, and the iiNet plans page shows the 50+50 quota only for the bundled plans)

Hooray for competition, but I'm thinking about downgrading from Home4 to Home3. 100 gig is plenty for me.

No, it is a bundled account [internet,phone,VOIP].

In December 2009 I had only just upgraded from "Broadband2 Plus Light" (an old ihug plan), at 20/20 to "Home3" at 30/30. That also was for free. The most I have peaked at so far has been 21/mth in Mar.

It has to be approaching a point where *most* people don't know what to do with the quota they have.

I'm on Exetel and just downgraded plans since they revised them a few weeks ago and then a couple of days later they actually upped the limits anyway so I'm almost back where I started! I could probably go down even another plan now!

I have a hom3 accont and only hit my quota once, back in the days before my conscience got the better of me and I would regularly access channel BT.
Nowadays, as I use iTunes, iview etc that do not get counted in the quota, I get nowhere near the limit.

I got the email this morning. I just recently downgraded from the 50+50 plan to the 30+30 plan and was thinking that they didn't process the downgrade properly.

I got upped from 75GB + 75GB up to 85GB + 85GB. Also my capped speed is now 256kbps!

Huzzah for the iiLove!
