At first glance I'm pretty sure this offer is only available to customers who sign to a new plan.
I understand that it's an offer to drive new customer connections, but it is really a pretty huge offer and it annoys me that anyone signing up from now gets double what I as an existing customer do. I signed to a 24 month One Rate 250 plan in June, and pay $99.95 a month. A new customer signing up can pay just $49.95 a month and get almost as many minutes (200).
I wouldn't have a problem if it were, say, double your minutes for 3 months - but the fact of the matter is that I've been a Telecom customer for YEARS, and now someone who hasn't been can come along and pay half what I do for a very similar plan for their ENTIRE contract term. It's a great offer for people joining the network, but what about helping out those of us who are already loyal customers?
Is anyone else in the same situation p*ssed off about this, or am I just being a sad sack?
