Telcos are notorious for leaving existing clients on legacy plans - we've all either seen someone paying 5 years ago prices for 4 years too long or maybe even been that someone. So receiving this email from Skinny today was a refreshing & welcome change.

"Good news! We've dropped the price on your Unlimited Wireless Broadband Plan to $60 per month. And the best part is that it is still the same Canstar winning, Kiwi owned, Consumer Trusted, friendly neighbourhood, high-speed Unlimited broadband as before, at this new low price.
Sit back, we've got this

As you're already on our Unlimited plan, all you need to do is... nothing! That's right, the next time your plan renews you'll have a crisp extra $5 in your pocket."

So thanks Skinny, thanks for busting that Telco reputation & thanks for the $5 too.

Skinny recently booted us off our legacy mobile prepay plans, switching us to a more expensive option. I went elsewhere instead.

Vodafone have repeatedly tried to get my Wife and I off our red share 40GB plan and each time we tell them no

@nztim I am sure the OP is talking about FWA not a mobile plan

Now if only their parent company [Spark] could do that ;) I imagine that there are plenty of folks on grandfathered plans where they could be getting better value.
