sidefx: calling groups are calls between 1 providers connections that aren't charged. IE I have 4 staff, 4 land lines, and my home phone all through VF for example, and they can all call, text, pxt and message each other as much as they like without cost. I think the prerequisite is that they need to be on the same account.

networkn: At least you CAN double your data, on business plans they don't!


You can double your data on business broadband 1 and 2. 

The other plans all charge $2 per GB for excess data.

Which is silly really. I can't understand why they do that, it's not like it's not an additional cost.

It's very normal for large companies to do this, as they have commercial interests to protect and they won't want to tip their competitors to their intentions.

What plan are you on?

Effectively if you are on business BB 3 (25gb), you can upgrade to business BB 4 (50gb) for about $20 which gives you double the data. Or you can just pay $2 per GB.

If that's still not enough, you can upgrade to business BB 5 which has 200gb of data.

Doesnt apply to this situation though. Every other company has either released increased cap plans or have something along the lines of "Bigger caps coming soon".

With voda? Nothing.

My issue is the disparity between the 50GB and 200GB. We don't need anywhere NEAR 200GB. 100GB would be ideal, or perhaps 110GB. I think they need a plan that sits in the middle, and apparently we aren't the only ones asking.

Actually none of the big companies "announced" and they just did it. I expect VF will do the same (though I already know there are changes being CONSIDERED) (See some of the other threads on GZ)

I expect VF is waiting to see what everyone else does so they can best decide what they want to offer. 

Patience, good things come to those who wait (Unless you are an xnet customer or a business customer with Snap :))

May have not announced it but they went one step better and just DID IT WITHOUT ANYONE ASKING. So over waiting for these new "plans"
