plus, how many international txt do you send in total each month??? A few???
And what proportion of money did you spend on national & local txt and call???
The difference for me is 1% vs 99%.
And I will choose a telco to satisfy my 99% needs, rather than caring about the 100%, and all the least important factors which I never use.
Nothing is 100% perfect.
So 2degrees is my choice after using Vodafone for 8 years.
You make a lot of assumptions with that. The biggest is that what you use is the same as everyone else.
Three of our four mobiles are on 2 degrees, I refuse to move mine until I can send international texts to the locations I need, Vodafone still meets my needs in the other areas. That is why I am still a Vodafone customer since the BellSouth days.
True, usage pattern is different for everyone, I am only stating my own usage pattern here, as I said this is my choice.
My main assumption is really just a higher proportion of mobile cost for everyone is national & local call & txt, which should be reasonably correct isn't it?
There is nothing wrong with choosing a cheap prepaid plan for local calls & txt.
Plus, do get in contact with the 2degrees staff and express your concerns, I logged a fault last Friday, and I actually got a call from a 2D staff today regarding the fault, and they told me they test called every single number I supplied to them, and I received very helpful tips from them as well.
This is the first time I received a call back from a telco, I am happy with 2degrees service and I think it well worths the money I am paying for.
