Yes, but less people will be affected.

Very strongly opposed to this idea!
I don't know what this midnight slowdown is that people talk about, I never have any problems.

Almost?

Exactly.

Yes please,
2am to 2pm is good.
3am to 3pm would be better
4am to 4pm best!

After experiencing a computer power supply go up in fire and smoke, I don't like leaving a consumer PC running unattended overnight.

Why? Regardless, the majority seem in favour of it, so please Exetel, go ahead with this.

Exetel did not say what their reasons were for the change except that it was suggested.

Thanks to Exetels generous peak and off-peak quantities I never reach my limits anyway.
Second I live in Perth so it is really changed to 12:00am – 12:00pm.
If it is only a suggestion then I suggest leave it the way it is.

I certainly have no issues with this change.

I think Exetel have been very fair to we customers, we need to be flexible in our usage too.

This is not an unreasonable change. Well, that's what I think.

I'd prefer it was kept as it is.

All the Exetel services I manage are used for business. This would mean more off-peak time during business hours.
Yes, it would be A Good Idea (tm).
