I have a need for about 50 USB XT modems.

I want to have one bill.

I want to pay for the data in a big block.

i.e. This month we used 150GB.

Thant may be 3GB per user, or it bay be 30GB for one user, and the rest spread in smaller amounts.

I want it VPN'd back to my server.

I don't want to be pinged overage charges if one device does lots of GB and the others only do a couple of gigs.

Can telecom do this (after 3 calls and 45 minutes..... Telecom 126 says no).

Seems like a pretty standard requirement for a big corporate to me?

:-)

Yes a company I do work for has 250 data sticks across the country and buy one data block they are all set up with an OA address for direct vpn login to the corporate network.

The question is will you like the price of the 150gb?

The question is, who can tell me the price !! :-) No one at Telecom 126 even knows what I'm asking, and telecom corporate (0800 482295), said they can't help me and I need to call 126 for pricing.......

Yes Telecom can do this, but it's not a black and white process. If you would like, I can call you tomorrow and we could discuss some details.

Let me know.

The pricing would depend on your current spend with the telco, it sounds like you need a corporate account manager from www.gen-i.co.nz

Really helpful ... NOT.

This is a decent-sized deal and you would think that somebody, somewhere would leap at the chance to help you!  So far, the various members of Telecom's team that you have contacted sound like they couldn't organise a p1ss-up in a brewery!

Perhaps nzbnw could help?  Try sending him a PM.  He has helped me a lot over the years.
