maknz: XT's superior pricing is what's making me stay. Unlimited texting and 120MB of data (100MB simply isn't enough, sorry VFNZ) cannot be found elsewhere. 2degrees is a joke for smartphones.


Unless I'm confused by your post you are confused about pricing!

Vodafone charge $10 for 100MB and 10c per MB after this. Telecom charge $12 for 120MB and then 50c per MB after this. 120MB costs the same on both networks but if you go over the 120MB data is significantly cheaper on Vodafone.



Didn't consider the overage costs. I am saying that 120MB is enough, 100MB isn't, which are the data plans for each provider.

@zonky: yeah, data in NZ is terrible. 120MB just sufficies for push mail/light browsing/IRC/twitter.


My point was that 120MB will cost you exactly the same on both networks - if 100MB isn't enough on VF then the extra 20MB will cost you same as it does to get the 120MB plan on Telecom.

You are crazy to be on Telecom and not on the 500MB plan anyway, it's the best option in the marketplace for casual mobile data.

freitasm: I don't know yet - just know it's in the afternoon. Will post here when I get the information.

According to Telecom's Twitter, it starts at 3:00.

I'm getting the ad on infinite loop. It seems to be broken!

so a 20 dollar top up is 25 dollars normally, so do we get 33% on $25?
