Hmm does that mean $19 best value prepaid is coming to a halt ... hmmm ... for $38 you could get 120 talk unlimitedx2 text and 1gb data if you bought 2 big prepay ... still ... if only they could improve their speeds - it feels like you can't use more than 100mb data a month at the moment!

I agree it looks like a copy of the 2degrees $39 plan but with 30minutes extra a month. Hard to tell how it compares value wise as 2degrees unused minutes carry over but telecoms expire each month. also 2degrees data can be shared with another device.




Any posts are personal comments and not that of my employer

The$19 prepaid plan will be available if you've already signed up for it up until the end of march, then will keep on going if you keep credit on your phone.  But no new folks can sign up after the end of the month.

But it's an interesting plan with our nationwide coverage.

You'd be better on Telecom's Smart Open plans of $29 rather than the $39 plan..

I'm still of the view the Mobile Broadband plans such as the $30 one is pretty good value if you wanted more data, then you can be on a smart one bill account and have a $6 txt add-on and get 150 Txt's and 750MB for $36, or more data if you needed it then pay as you go for voice calls.

My that's just my own personal view :)

you must be in a pretty bad coverage area.

I get thorugh over 2GB each month no problem, and I don't even have a dual carrier device which would be a lot faster.


ETA: just ran a speedtest in central auckland.  got 6Mbps down, 1Mbps up on my iPhone 4  (which has a theoretical maximumof 7.2Mbps down and 5.8Mbps up)
