the broadband wars continue

Recently Telenet increased it’s bandwidth limits to 25 GB, instead of the previous 20, which came from only 10 GB last July. Now the competitors Scarlet and Tele2 are dropping their bandwidth limitation all together, and are opting for a Fair Use Policy to cover their telecom asses for abuse.

I can only be geekishly happy about this turn of events, as this means that slowly but surely Belgium is progressing towards a bandwidth limit free ISP country, which will put us up to par with the rest of the developed world. Judging from the price difference, new geeks signing up for phat cable will probably be choosing the ADSL solution from Scarlet, as it’s half the price of the Telenet and Belgacom solution, and without limitations. Awesome.
