For the $10 discount on a 24month term you need to have a Telecom fixed line and Broadband connection.

Also double your data for the term of your contract at the moment.

Does anyone know if an existing customer with no contract can change to one of these new plans?

FYI. I see the 500mb plan has been removed from *333 and website. I still managed to change to it just now by speaking to someone on *123

The 500 MB plan is still listed. I believe it's had a price drop too (it's $29.95 now and I'm fairly sure that it used to be $34.95).

I think the new plans are pretty poor... the prepaid ones that is. I prefer the way it was before, where prepaid and on account plans are the same.

So, my question is, can prepaid still get the 2GB plan for $49.95/$59.95?

No, but they *might* be able to get the older plans?

For prepaid users:
Has the option of buying the 1 gig and higher options been removed?

I found the webpage for prepaid and it now only mentions the $1 casual rate and the 500mb for $30 option

I noticed the same thing on Telecom's webpage and was wondering the same thing as you. (being a prepay user on XT!).  If I switch to the new 500MB plan and use 1GB it would cost $59.90 (ie 2x $29.95) as opposed to the current $54.95 for the 1GB.

My main reason for being on XT Prepay is the better value you get if you mainly use data and text but don't call much, ie the $60 topup giving you $80.  It was good you apply this to the bigger plans, however I gather this is no longer the case.  anyone got any comments on the above?

cheers,
ben.

as nzbnw pointed out before, the new plans are not available to prepay customers, and prepay customers *might* be able to sign on the old plans.

I also want to know what happens if you're on one of the older plans... do you have to move, or you can stay on the old plans for as long as you like?

I'm also on XT because of the cheaper and more generous data plans for prepay customers. And also because iPhone works best on XT. :P

You will be able to retain your prepaid plan; and if Telecom where to move you off your current plan I'm sure they would be required to give you notification if that change.

i noticed that the overage fees have been lowered a hell of a lot too, 80% in fact.
 still $100 a gig is quite a deterrant for a large user :S




this is where a signature goes

If you compare to Telstra in Aussie they recently (not sure if they have reverted their charges) increased their overage pricing from $0.15 to $0.25 AUD per MB. Telstra did however lower the monthly fee for included data packages.

At least it's a step in the right direction and ideally it can only go one way from here :)

Is there anything still available less than 500MB per month?

My work is currently with Vodafone and I pay $10 per month for 100MB, which does me quite nicely. We are moving over to Telecom shortly, and I thought they did have a 120GB for $12 add on or something similar. Has this now disappeared?
