I was in a Telecom store today and a staff member mentioned there's new plans due out in the next day or so?

Anyone know the details on these yet?

I don't know the details, but I've noted down the current plans to make things easier to compare tomorrow if the rumour is true :)

Really hoping for some new plans as they're current ones are lagging behind other providers. I've tried all the other providers though and their service is crap.

Telecom use to be cheaper then Vodafone and Telecom especially when they gave off peak minutes, now they only offer Anytime calling and they charge more then Two Degrees and Vodafone for anytime calling.

Nah dude, it's Telecom that's crap, they have very bad coverage, they don't have enough cell sites and the ones they do have are too short.

Sounds like my experience with certain other providers. Telecom have been far better in my experience.

bit of trolling going on methinks.

I'm on Telecom in Auckland and no complaints. Don't thinkj any of the top telco's are crap and not sure why people think they are but you have a choice instead of whingeing about them, besides the threads about Telecom mobile plans
