Quick question: does a new 2° tower in your area mean that its a Mobile broadband Area and the big cheaper packs are able to be used?

(2degrees website seems to be down ATM)

Cheers

If the 2D tower is unlocked and taking traffic then it should be but please let 2D confirm this

2D have said before that if you can connect to their tower without roaming then yes you are inside their MBB zone for data.
Only beware that in the case of a new tower it goes through a testing phase so be careful you don't go back to roaming.

On 2d if you set your APN to '' (blank) instead of 'internet' you will only get a data connection if inside a MBB zone and not on roaming, so this is one way to be sure you wont go through all your prepay balance :)

Thank you for the advice, the APN info is gold, I understand you can also stop it from roaming onto national data by texting some command.
