Data Costs

Tony Hughes at The GeekZoner calculates that WAP access with Telecom costs $50,000 a GB.

Using a 7.32MB as a comparison, Tony calculates the costs of downloading it are:

(a) 4.2c on a 10GB ADSL plan with Xtra
(b) 39c with a a Vodafone data card
(c) $58.56 on a Windows Mobile Pocket PC at Telecoms casual access rate
(d) $374.78 on a Nokia 6265 using Telecom’s WAP rates
