TELECOM INTRODUCES NEW ZEALAND’S BEST TRANS-TASMAN ROAMING TEXT RATE

XT customers roaming in Australia are set to enjoy a significant decrease in roaming text rates until 31 July 2011.

From today, Telecom prepaid and postpaid customers will pay just $10 for
100 texts while roaming in Australia.

Telecom Retail’s Chief Marketing Officer, Kieren Cooney, says the reduced text roaming rates will give XT customers the best value in the market and more price certainty when roaming across the ditch in the next two months.

“Roaming on our XT network already provides our customers with a seamless experience between Australia and New Zealand. Our new roaming rates will add to this by giving customers the certainty and flexibility around what they will pay while they are in Australia,” Mr Cooney says.

Telecom is also permanently reducing data roaming rates in Australia for prepaid and postpaid XT customers.

“The cut in data roaming rates furthers our commitment to XT customers through a fear-free data experience,” says Mr Cooney.

"We've slashed our standard postpaid data rate while roaming in Australia by almost 70% - going from $8 to only $2.50 per MB.  And if you want more certainty around what you're going to pay and great value, you can get 100MB for only $100 – basically, $1 a MB.

If you're a prepaid customer, there's also great value - we've halved our prepaid data roaming rate to only $4 per MB, and what’s more, you can buy a 10MB bundle of data for just $10."

The cut in the data roaming rate sounds permanent. I wonder why they didn't make that the main message of the release?

If you don't have a text plan, it's now cheaper to send a text from Australia on Telecom than from NZ. Good going!

Let's see some cheaper base prices domestically, shall we?

It's a bit more complicated than the press release suggests:


Postpaid and Prepaid text promotion in Australia
Get 100 texts for $10 until July 31st while roaming in Australia! Once you’ve sent 13 texts you've spent $10 so we're giving you the next 87 texts for FREE. Any additional texts are 80c per text.



Good deal though.
