Today we have launched two new Combos and changed the way that Add-Ons work.  See here for details.

You can now choose 7 Day and 30 Day Add-Ons on any Combo, so you can have 7 Day Add-Ons on the monthly Combos.

We've also added these great new Combos

Nice to see someone finally providing more data on the bigger combos instead of just more free mins

Do you have any plans to ever offer international roaming?  That's the one glaring omission in your product lineup compared to 2degrees, and the main thing stopping me switching.

By international roaming I assume you mean data roaming as we do roam for calling and texting already.  It is on the roadmap but isn't a high priority for the majority of our customers.

Oh.  I thought you didn't do it at all.  Has it always been like that or did you not offer roaming in the past?

They do offer roaming! But only for calling and texting, Data will not work well roaming

They've had it basically since they started in 2012 I believe

For 512mb I'd suggest including the Data300 Add-On.

For data only, I hadn't announced this yet as it is still being rolled out this week, but from Saturday Harvey Norman will have completed the national rollout of an exclusive Skinny data only offering - see the details below then get to your nearest Harvey Norman store.

We've had roaming for calling and texting since launch.  You can check the countries available and charges here

Is the old $16 combo now called "Big Value Combo"? I just got a text saying that my "Big Value Combo" has been applied but this phrase doesn't seem to appear anywhere on the Skinny site (at least Google doesn't find it). I'm just trying to check that I haven't been switched to something different :)

The $30 combo looks very tempting. Might be moving away from my telecom plan unless they up their game

Yes Stretch has been changed to keep it in line with the new Combos.
