Telecom New Zealand's Freedom allows residential customers to make as many calls as they like, both ways, between a home phone and a nominated Telecom mobile (CDMA) for just NZ$10 a month, charged to the home phone account. Up to five Telecom 027 mobiles can be nominated at a cost of NZ$10 per month, per mobile.
Calls can last for up to 60 minutes each and can be made at any time of the day, any day of the week. Any Telecom mobile is eligible to be attached to this new service.
Calls from residential landlines to mobiles are presently charged to Telecom customers at a range of prices from 39 to 71 cents (NZD) a minute, depending on the plan and time of day.
"At 39 cents a minute (NZD), customers on Freedom would only need to talk for 26 minutes a month to a nominated mobile to recoup the cost – and that doesn't take into consideration the savings from the mobile phone calling home," Mr Bowler said.
