TELECOM STREAMLINES HOME PHONE & BROADBAND PLANS FOR THE FUTURE
The country’s largest telecommunications provider, Telecom, has updated its extensive range of plans for residential home phone and broadband customers as New Zealand inches towards better, faster broadband with fibre.
The announcement coincides with a recent report from Statistics New Zealand which details how internet consumption is increasing year-on-year.
Chris Thompson, Telecom Retail - Home says, “Kiwi broadband subscribers are consuming an average of 7GB data more a month than this time last year, and people who have signed-up for data caps of 50GB per month or more increased by almost 800 percent in a year.
“The launch of our new home phone and broadband plans mark a massive shift in the way we are supporting our customers in seamlessly preparing for new, life-changing communications technology.”
The new plans are also designed as the first step towards readying Kiwis for Telecom’s impending Ultra Fast Broadband (UFB) products launching in March 2013, which will have a significant impact on the future speed and scale of access to online information and connectivity.
As a special salute to the new plans, for a limited time, Telecom has increased the data allowance for subscribers on the 5GB plan to 30GB of data per month. At only $75, users will enjoy greater capacity to use online products and services. Existing customers who have already signed-up will be upgraded for free until the end of 2013.
Mr Thompson says Kiwis should be keeping an eye out for other great plans as the company ‘gets back in the game’ on aligning products with customer expectations on price.
