Subj: Jetstart

It seems that Telecom may have announced their new Jetstart
package a little prematurely. A visit to ALL of the listed
ISPs showed that none of them provide any (ISP) pricing
information on the Jetstart service.
Maybe one of the listed ISPs would care to respond to this
(or perhaps Telecom themselves!) - a new service without an
ISP is pretty useless.

Subj: I can see clearly now...

Well it appears that the JetStart service will not be
available until Monday Jan 22 and users are advised not to
contact their ISPs until then.
I guess that explains it... it was a slightly premature
announcement, so I guess I'll have to wait.

Subj: JetStart

Bah!!! Humbug...  22nd - 18th = 5 days.  I'm glad they
announced it.  I've contacted my ISP (Voyager) who has
placed me on their priority list.  So as soon as the
service is available they will contact me to get it
rolling. That's what I call service!!!!!  I don't expect to
be connected tomorrow, but I'm glad I know it on the
horizon.

Subj: Telecom still protecting Xtra

First Telecom protected Xtra by loading the Jetstream cost
and reducing the ISP charges.  That still didn't put off the
other ISP's who stole customers from Xtra's customers by
matching price and offering fixed IP address.  So to protect
Jetstart they have banned fixed IP address, surely that is
an ISP issue not for Telecom to dictate.  So if I want to
keep Jetstream and add Jetstart to a second copper pair to
get around the criminal $0.20MB charge you can bet they want
a second line rental.
