hamish225: I'd be interested to know as to why they don't extend this flat rate price to pre paid customers, is our money not good enough for you?
possibly the risk of arbitrage.
Its quite possible they are making a loss on this price. If they allowed it on prepay then people could just take a telecom sim over to Oz purely for data roaming and keep their 2degrees/vf when back here. Telecom would need to ensure they at leats get the domestic revenues from the account to make up for it.
(heck, if it was on prepaid then ozzies could just take a telecom prepaid sim and use it in ozzie to get unlimited data for $180 per month. Pretty sure there are no unlimited mobile data plans in ozzie so it could be an option for heavy users IF it was allowed on prepaid.)
