Hello Everyone,

I was curious about the new 'Telecom Broadband' offer for $16.95, I have had a look at the website

http://www.telecom.co.nz/broadbandoffer

and can't find the answer to my question about how much data you get and what happens when you go over (back to dialup speed, or get charged $20/GB)

Reading through the page, I noticed a few more clauses which make this look more expensive such as

"If you are a Telecom home calling customer you can sign up to our Basic Broadband plan now and it will only cost you $16.95 per month for the first six months. That's the same price as our most popular Dial-Up plan!

If you sign up to any other Telecom Broadband Plan or you don't have your home calling with us you will still receive $13 off your Broadband monthly plan charges for the first six months."

So does this mean after six months it will cost $30 a month (with a 12 month contract)

Its worth noting that one can change plans and receive the credit. However you'll be paying slightly more (ie for the 3gb plan).

freitasm: This was discussed here before. It's a 200 MB plan. You pay this for six months then back to normal price.


Oops sorry, couldn't find the older thread before for looking, much like my car keys :)
