NonprayingMantis: this. they either charge retial customers for a reconnect, or can't charge other providers when they want to connect a customers.
PhoenixNZ: There should be a little clarity on this one.
Regardless of whether you are connecting an existing line or simply moving your services back to Telecom, there is a connection fee. This is required of Telecom as if they started treating new line connections and winbacks seperately then they would be in trouble with the Comm Comm as it would be considered anti-competitive.
Thanks for explaining that guys.
It makes a bit more sense to me now. Kind of like Telecom is caught between a rock and a hard place on this one...
