in brief Internet service provider TPG has one-upped itself in the ongoing battle for bandwidth supremacy by releasing a new unlimited plan for a minuscule $29.99 per month.

At a cursory glance, the new plan is not too dissimilar from its current unlimited offering. The difference lies in that the plan needs to be bundled separately with TPG home phone line rental at an extra cost of $30 per month, bringing the full cost of the new unlimited offering to $59.99 — a full $20 cheaper than its current unlimited plan.

The new unlimited plan still includes unlimited, unmetered uploads and downloads and free IPTV on a six- or 18-month contract offering.

TPG's plan is the latest shot to sound out in the bandwidth battle after cut-price internet service provider, Dodo, launched a 3-terabyte plan earlier this month.
