Bigpipe is very pleased, stoked even, to announce it will begin offering unlimited, naked, max-speed fibre connections for $129 a month
Yes! Bigpipe will be upgrading customers on our Elite ($129 per month) plan to Gigabit speeds wherever available 😀 https://t.co/7SopJneF1m

Chorus last week announced that it was set to begin offering “Gigabit” plans nationwide from October 1, 2016.
Customers on Bigpipe’s Elite plan, who currently receive speeds of 200 Mbps upload and download, will be upgraded to max speeds speed free of charge. The Elite plan will keep the same name, but it will be upgraded to allow speeds of up to 900 Mbps download and 500 Mbps upload.
The usual Bigpipe cool stuff will apply to the new Elite plan: no term contracts, no throttling, no data caps, and great online support.
Customers who sign up for Elite fibre between now and the upgrade will also get max speeds as soon as they become available. From October, anyone who signs up for the Elite plan in an area where Bigpipe offers fibre connections will get gigabit speeds automatically.
Bigpipe is already starting the process of upgrading customers on its Elite fibre plans to max speeds in areas serviced by Enable and Ultrafast Fibre, and we look forward to having customers in areas serviced by Chorus connected to max speed fibre from October.
Customers on the Elite plan, who currently receive speeds of 200 Mbps upload and download, will get the max speed upgrade as soon as it is available.
