Telenet has opened the box of pandora

The biggest internet service provider in Belgium has a problem and the thing is, they initiated the shit they are in right now. They did a campaign for the wrong reasons on the wrong moment. And I’m pretty sure if they thought it trough they wouldn’t have made this fault.

They did a campaign “telenet drukt op de knop“. Which revealed they would “upgrade” their download or upload speed… But people were getting excited telenet would upgrade their traffic limits which wasn’t the case. It’s still about 15 GB a month if I’m not mistaken (I’m not a telenet customer). So if it became clear Telenet would just upgrade the speed, but the datalimit would stay in place. It just fired up the whole discussion about the very limited traffic limit… And now it seems the discussion is more heavily than ever, I’m seeing blogposts, consumer initiatives, facebook groups, fake posters, …

Telenet reacted that just a very small part of the customers need more traffic volume, because there are only a few who cross the allowed limit. Well I’m pretty sure a lot of people just don’t cross the limit just because they know there is a limit. And if they cross the limit they know you’re going to be put on smallband (which is, believe me, hell!) or have to pay for an extra volume pack. Which is pretty ridiculous.

And I’m really not sure people were waiting for faster internet… I’m sure with current download speeds, you can do pretty much everything. So most customers won’t even notice something has changed. That makes it such a useless campaign … and only harms telenet.

Luckily there are alternatives, I switched to Dommel Cityconnect (currently only available in the centre of Leuven). No data limit, 23mbps download speed, 3mbps upload speed, fixed ip, … And it is still cheaper than Telenet. Dommel gives you less service, but more no nonsense internet. Just what I need…

  1. With every little thing that appears to be building inside this specific subject matter, many of your perspectives are actually quite refreshing. On the other hand, I appologize, because I can not give credence to your entire theory, all be it radical none the less. It looks to everybody that your commentary are generally not entirely rationalized and in simple fact you are generally yourself not completely convinced of the assertion. In any event I did appreciate reading through it.

  10. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  16. Throughout the awesome design of things you’ll secure a B+ for effort. Where you confused everybody ended up being on the particulars. As they say, the devil is in the details… And it couldn’t be much more accurate in this article. Having said that, allow me say to you what did deliver the results. The article (parts of it) is definitely highly persuasive which is possibly why I am making an effort in order to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, whilst I can certainly see the leaps in logic you make, I am definitely not certain of how you appear to connect your ideas which in turn produce your conclusion.
