Wouldnt that be nice at A$45

"The cheapest plan offers 1 gigabit of mobile data with unlimited phone calls and text messages, while the most expensive plan, $100 a month for at least 12 months, includes 4 gigabits of data and $100 worth of international voice and video calls."

what is also sad is that a tech journalist in the SMH doesn't know the difference between a gigabit and a gigabyte.

And for those who blame NZ's MTRs for out high calling costs here and support a massive cut believing it will slash prices - it's worth pointing out that Australia's current MTR rate is approximately 9c per minute.

To be competitive in the mobile marketplace vfone had no choice but to lower its prices following on from the price cuts by Optus last month.  I look forward to see what Telstra will do to maintain market share.
