PaulBrislen: As Steve says, it's all about asymmetry.
2D will have a smaller incoming rate from us BUT that's matched with a smaller outgoing rate.
And besides, the deal with have with 2D gives them a significant advantage over the traditional 15c/min each way.
See also the Independent and possibly NBR when/if they get to put the story up again.
This deal is only applicable between 2D and Vfone. Where does it say that 2D and Telecom have done a deal on MTR's.
