Google So yeah, Google totally just won the conference showdown by easily beating both Apple and Microsoft. Not only did Google announce Android 4.1 with some really cool new features, a cheap but non-crippled tablet, and a new Android device called the Nexus Q, but they also opened up pre-orders for Google Glass. So yeah.

As for traffic based capped monthly plans - we have it in NZ but that is due to the fact that 99% of data NZ users pull on is located outside of New Zealand, we have a small population and the cost of laying international cables is prohibitively expensive.

Don't you piggyback on Australia a bit in this regard? Don't the trans-Pacific cables happen to go through NZ?
(also, data sources are outside borders for most of the planet, I presume)

PS. Ah, that was quick to find...

...generally, weird realisation about our data packets travelling in deep ocean)
