I rang up Vodafone and they said they are releasing a new plan in about 3 weeks, they said they can't match Telecoms 500GB plan so idk lol this is like a 50/50 chance in my knowledge. So what do you think it would be?

what is it that you are trying to say? Or are you just wanting people to speculate on what this new plan might entail???

Think about it. The OP has 1 post, hence just joined. John is a respected long time poster, no he hasn't just joined, as his 11k profile shows. He was replying to the OP. (OP means original poster)

A case of too little too late, I would be actually surprised if anyone is actually still with Vodafone when they have been out of the competition for over 6 months now. If you are still with Vodafone you are either stuck in a contract or a very loyal customer. Other ISP's have been offering twice the data or more for the same or less cost.

Anyways last time Vodafone announced their so called "major" plans, they increased the data limits by only 20gigs while other ISP's were increasing by huge margins.

This shows carriers know the market better than general end users and we have very good growth in the fix line space

Not every customer needs 100s of Gigs per month in fact very few when you check out the average usage figures

Actually I am a vodafone customer. Fixed and mobile, and I love them.

I have found the customer service to be excellent the speeds great. They have a very loyal customer from me.

I have had cause to ring Telecom over the years for friends and I wish I could say the same about them.

No I dont have a 500Gb limit per month but I dont need it.

My 0.02c worth

I'm still with Vodafone. :) Telecom can't match Vodafone. All Vodafone Call Centres are in New Zealand so you don't have fobs on the other line.

For $85 a month I get 160GB, Free MySKY, Unlimited iSKY, Free Calling to a Mobile, Homeline and SKY all in one bill. No ISP matches what I get from Vodafone at the moment..

Still with Vodafone, even though us Naked DSL users were overlooked with the 20GB upgrade. The service is usually good so don't really want to move.

Yeah, but the highest paying are the people who use the most bandwidth, I was paying $141 a month while I was on Ultimate, Also your post suggests that Vodafone don't give a damn about their high usage customers.

Nice deal, even though I was with them for many many years the best deal they could give me is $15 double data a month instead of $30, so I would be paying around $126 a month which is far too much anyways. You must be close friends or related to the Vodafone CEO or something to get half price like that :D

I also got for $85 - 160GB(free double data) + 5 best mates + free national calling + a modem + $15 discount of MYSKYHDi, all I had to do was sign up for a year and I will also get any increases as it is free double data.
