Hi,

Have you thought about offering pay monthly plans with zone data instead of national data?  I find 100mb on my current plan goes through rather quickly.

eg. instead of having 100mb national data, i would prefer to have 250mb of broadband zone data.

Alternatively it would be great if I could buy broadband zone data in either smaller chunks or longer validity periods.  Currently the cheapest option if 100mb is not enough for you is to pay an extra $20/month for 1GB.  (The other broadband zone options work out at $25 / month ($50/2 or $150/6)


Any of the below packs would be good

100mb / 1 month for $5

300mb / 1 month for $10

500 mb / 2 months for $20

1GB / 3 months for $25

I'd like to see more than 50mb on the $29 plan ;)

It would be cool if you could do a package "professional deal" (as in professional worker), allowing us to connect multiple SIMs to one plan. The idea being to connect iPads, iPhones and Data Sticks to the one account and plan. Would be heaven!

Yeah the $59 and above plans have enough data using the bonus 1gb, but the $29 / $39 plans don't have enough data.

Yeah $59+ are groovy deals with perfect data blocks. However lower plans are unsuitable for smartphones, unfortunately students don't have enough for more than the $29 so rock and hard place syndrome

This thread is refreshing to see as I moved away from 2D to VF a couple of months ago due to non smartphone friendly data options, maybe they have now reviewed the situation and found some shortcomings, will keep an eye out to see what comes out

I imagine it's not the case of reviewing and shortcomings - more likely just a staggered product launch.

How else can you maximize profits? It has taken over 12 months for the competitors to challenge their data pricing... We await next months offering from vodafones and telecom to follow.

If they are already much better than the competition, then there is no point to further under cut.
