it's true, thats my very honest opinion

im currently on 2degree i get 300 free text every month and i dont use any of them at all

on smartphone there r google talk, gmail, whatsapp, wechat so i no longer use text anymore 

johnr:

i'm currently on 2degree $99 for 12gb 6month, so my spending is about $15 per month

on average i only use about 300-500mb per month

if you can come up with something with similar price with 500mb national or perhaps carryover data

then i'll definitely go for it

dannywii: ur website is a bit confusing, too many things u r getting into


plus tv seems interesting, although it says foreign tv but on the channel list it's just full of arabic channels
im not too sure how many arabic r in nz


Have forwarded your feedback to our team. Thanks!

dannywii: anyway back to topic , for mobile plan
i think more national data with no calling or txt....maybe a little bit of calling but definitely no text
we r in era of smartphones, included text has NO value to customers


Interesting; just national data. How much would you use? (and how much do you think is a fair price for that?)

so when you said

"included txt has no value to customers"

what you meant to say was

"included txt has no value to ME"


unless you suffer from the delusion that every single mobile customer in NZ has a usage profile exactly like yours those two are very different things.

If you all have smartphones, text apps are much much better than SMS through carriers. However there's always going to be those who don't have smartphones.

So how much data would you use per month? Is that enough for using all the apps on smartphones + your normal data usage?

I suspect the problem is the whole telcoinabox wholesale model has been completely ruined by Telecom now offering retail pricing cheaper than the existing telcoinabox wholesale pricing.
