2Degrees vs Spark/Vodafone offering... Winner?

, posted: 19-Feb-2015 17:53

2Degrees has kept their word since launch - to provide the best value in mobile market.

In September, I compared vodafone and 2degrees share plan. I did'nt switch to 2Degrees as vodafone was able to offer me a comparable data for the price I was paying after talking to the retention team.

I always wonder how can 2Degrees offer lots of data? Last year, I was able to stream Hulu/Netflix using the 2degrees mobile broadband without any issue while away on holiday. It was the cheapest choice then - maybe now as well?

I have not come across any thread in geekzone, customers complaining about 'slow' data speed on 2Degrees. So I am assuming that there must not be any issue despite their huge data offerings.

I am not interested with prepay offering, nor I have any interest to have music streaming to my phone. I was on Spark, although their wifi offering is great, I am not anywhere near their hotspot.

I don't believe in signing up for 24 or even 12 months term. It was only 5 months ago when the data offering was increased. 




There is no doubt that 2Degrees has the best plan for the same amount of data, plus it is carryover.

I talked to Vodafone retention team, no, they can't offer 5GB of data, as this is reserved for the open term $99 plan. I am on $69 open term plan.

The only thing left for me to consider is international roaming - I travel overseas for holiday few times a year...


User Hagrid posted the screenshot below, he definitely has great offer... I guess some customers are more valuable than others?

Yes - I am jealous! yell

Yes that was a offer to change to that plan by vodafone sales (retention just kept saying oh we can't discount it anymore it's already discounted byv$10)

Vodafone's Roaming offer is better than anything else in the market for most. On your plan, unlimited calling/texting while roaming for $5 a day? That's pretty good - not to mention you can also use your data allocation.

Jeez Vodafone needs to contact me and offer me that offer Hagrid has, I'd switch to VF immediately if I could get that same plan

0800 800 021 is mobile sales  the number Hagrid gave is home phone and broadband sales. People always complain they get put on hold for hours with vodafone - here's a big reason why. :)

It goes though to a IVR and it has options for Mobile Sales!
