There are conflicting data roaming rates posted on the 2degrees website. On one hand, 2degrees talk about 0.50c and 0.95c per MB (which both are actually LESS than 1c) but on the other hand it was presented as 50c and 95c per MB.

I'm guessing 50c and 95c per MB are the correct rates as 0.50c and 0.95c per MB seems too cheap to be true. lol.

Don't confuse yourself. They're all dollar figures. So 0.50c is actually $0.50.

I expect you will see a change of the the text in the first image quite soon, most likely to be just like that in the 2nd image :-D

Technically, 0.50c would be half a cent would it not? :-)

Technically, yes. But I'm applying some common sense here. ;)

Thanks for the feedback. We'll look into making these pages a little clearer.

For the record and so everyone's clear ....

Australia is 95 cents per MB and 50 cents per MB if you're on a $59 or above plan.

Reminds me of this hilarious incident from a few years ago where somebody was told his charges would be 0.002c/kb yet he was billed $0.002/kb and the customer service people on the phone just could not understand that there was a difference between the two.
