  Mobile pricing fixed by ministerial fiat
NZ Herald, Wednesday June 27, 2007

It may be time to fix your mobile phone costs for the next five years.

"Ridiculous," you say.

"No one would offer a deal like that, and I'd be a mug to take it."

Moore's Law, which says the capacity of silicon chips doubles every 18 months and the price halves, and Metcalfe's law, which gives a handy reckoning of the value of networks, would seem to indicate committing yourself to a technology spend five years out is folly.

But in the looking glass world of New Zealand telecommunications, the Five Year Plan has made a dramatic resurgence.
