What I found interesting is that it is the first time I have ever seen a increase in the base rate of a plan. Normally the plan gets grandfathered and you can only by a new plan.

That was my first thought.   But you can get cheaper plans on Telecom prepay  if your not a high user..

They make more $$$ when you're on a plan. Why not convert them? It only makes smart business sense.

Yes. I was getting confused between casual data and addon data. I guess it is to drive people towards larger packs to avoid the overage.
I will make doubly sure my data limit warning is operating.

If you switch to a post-paid like I did last month, my casual call rates are now 69c a min and 30c MB.

But that's not all, they're putting a minimum $3 monthly charge on my mobile bill for being casual and post paid now.

You can also have a Data Smart Cap applied to stop you being able to pay data overage at all

Just got a letter today about our Onebill $19 post pay plans.
Data to 30c but call minutes from 44c to 69c. That's quite a hike on minutes.. What they need to do is to allow post pay plans to buy more minutes as you can with data..
