The gist here is an Australian telecommunications company – Telstra had an outage and in order to make amends, they gave their mobile customers a day(Sunday) of free unlimited data.
Now, the part that got me shaking my head was when the company said that it amassed a total of 1,841 terabytes of data during the free data period which is equivalent to 5.1 million episodes of Game Of Thrones, or 23 million downloaded copies of Kanye West’s new The Life Of Pablo album.
One user claim they downloaded 421 gigabytes of data
However, even if 1TB seems like a lot – 1000 Gigabyte is equivalent to 1 Terabyte – I can’t help feeling that they could have done more, say 500 TB. In another school of thought, maybe Telstra don’t have a large subsriber base.
Just imagine for one moment that MTN declares this in Nigeria.
