We need that hotspot included!

Shindig: We need that hotspot included!

 

I also did think it was odd to not include this, considering Skinny and 2degrees both have .
However can understand Spark has the additional benefits of Lightbox/Spotify/etc in comparison.

Have Lightbox from Spark broadband and Spotify Family. Spotify Premium sub can't be put towards Family, so neither of those benefits applies to me. Opting for hotspotting instead of Lightbox/Spotify would be a useful option in my case.
As it is, I am on the cusp of changing to 2 Degrees after being a Telecom/Spark mobile customer for many years, because I just can't see the value in the Spark deals anymore.

Edit:
To be honest though, I'm probably looking at the 25GB deal as I'm a data miser and can't see me needing more than that. But I do want to share the data with two other devices. Spark has nothing comparable because they charge per extra device to share, 2D doesn't. But the observation about Spotify/Lightbox applies equally in this case too.

Me too! Currently paying $100 for 7.5gb shared between 2 mobiles. For the same price (and connections) Vodafone is offering 40gb - kind of a no brainer. One free Spotify account is nice, but as you say, you get pretty good value out of Spotify family.
