It looks like some changes were rolled out over night.

There seems to be a new Smart19Data plan with 30 minutes calling, 300 any-network TXTs, and 300MB data.

TXTNZ also seems to have been upgraded from 2500 TXTs to 5000 TXTs

Quite pleased about the 300MB data on the new Smart19Data plan as it's even more than on-account!

Seems a bit uncompetitive that VF have simply mirrored a 2Degrees offer that has been around for some months rather than creating a unique bundle that is better value in at least one of the 3 sections. I.e. More texts, minutes or Data to make a point of difference.

I assume the Smart19data means it is $19.

OK I'm lost - matching the competition is uncompetitive?

That $19 plan looks great, person I text the most I've just moved onto Viber to save on sms costs.

Next thing Vodafone could do to make this better would be sharing the data cap with an iPad
