Are Spark taking the piss with their new mobile plan?

Can you give a bit more detail about the plan and your opinion, perhaps using slightly less expressive language.

steffen:

Great news, we have just launched our new prepaid and postpaid plans and ALL our plans have now rollover data and minutes. Check it out in our app and change to our new plans. You can change your plan in the app, just go to the plan details page and tab on change plans.

 

 

Again, thanks for your feedback!

 

Cheers

 

Steffen

 If it is related to the rollover plans I think they're excellent - great that Spark are making these changes. I think I may move across to them now.

The only thing I'm not clear about the new plans and Spotify is this

 

spark:

Terms for Prepaid customers

 

c. $6.90 (50% discount/4 Weekly Half Price Spotify) ) will be debited from your top up credit when you purchase the Spotify Extra, and then subsequently every 4 weeks on the renewal date, while you’re on an eligible Spark Prepaid Pack.

Roll over data of a max total of 3.5gigs is really disappointing. If you are going to roll over then roll over all left over data. 

 

Kinda glad i moved over to another telco now.

Is the plan listed on the page I linked off to above? This should answer your question

Just confirmed with Spark support that most of the existing plans (on account) will automatically get switched over to Rollover. For Prepaid they'll have to opt-in.

 

Half price Spotify still isn't bad for prepaid considering you'll be paying $14 for it anyway with another provider.

I'm only with spark for Spotify. And I'm not staying for a 50pc discount.
Does anyone know if this is exciting plans?
Is my current plan grandfathered?

Also did I read they are going to 28 day billing?
The T&C in the Spotify notes seemed to imply it thinking back.

Edit.
Thanks murf. You have just answered my questions

Guess I'll have to wait until the 23rd of the month to see if the Onebill plans get it..

The $19.99 Onebill plan is grandfathered so it probably wouldn't change. Even the $29.99 plan isn't showing any changes.

Thanx.  I suspected as much.  May switch Wife to prepay if nothing happens.
