That is a very cool idea!!! :)

I have to confess I was looking at my last telco provider bill and wondering why we still get paper in the letter box.

Of all my providers, I now only have 1 that ever sends me a bit of paper.

I haven't had a physical bill from Telecom for at least a couple of years. Why do people still bother?

I still bother, solely to wait for offers like this.

I still get paper bills with my ASB account as I don't have an account where they discount for e-statements - when they give me a $2 discount, I'll switch.

I'm waiting for Mercury to repeat their books for bills ovffer before I switch with them.

I'll now switch my telecom bill to email, now they're done this offer Smile

Basic reasoning is, why should you help reduce a corporations cost with nothing in return?  I don't buy the environment argument, over paper bills, especially for an energy company..

All my customers are farmers so I am going to say I'll put them in the draw for a couple of months  free internet if they opt for paperless billing.

I always feel that broadband saves trees and is good for the environment but i would hate to think how much paper is wasted by telecom or other big companies sending out invoices. Or even the weight added to the NZPost trucks and the extra diesal used carrying them around the country.
