No you don't need to be rich to have access to 4G and the finer detail why Prepay does not have access I would say I can't go into on the public forum

: But when people tell me they want to watch movies on mobile - and HD movies for that matter on a small screen... Come one, just get an unlimited fixed line broadband connection and be done with it.


I often used my phone at others people homes, on my lunch break at work  and on holiday to watch  FHD content via HDMI, the option to stream it occasionally would be welcome.

That isn't being rich, that is earning a living wage .

If you have so little money how do you afford a premium device with 4g?

Vodafone have decided that users will pay for this service, i k now its shocking but until unicef get into the mobile data game that will likely continue.

For me it's like sky and even the hd ticket. If you want it that badly and it is worthwhile for you, then you will pay. If people are going to pay the extra ten dollars, why wouldn't they charge for it. So 4g is only available in some places, hd is only available on some channels, people still pay.

NZCoderGuy: $10 a month extra, for the privilege of burning through your data cap faster?

I am failing to see the logic in that? I would have thought it was a given..


Don't be disingenuous. Do you complain paying extra for a v8 in your car just because it burns through your fuel faster? I don't like the $10 fee either, but at the end of the day, it's not JUST so you can burn through your cap faster and to suggest it is, isn't reasonable or representative of the facts.



If you are going to use a car analogy for 4G then yes you would complain if your V8 ran out of gas before it left the drive way.


V8? more like W16!

Some of you guys are starting to sound like a poncy car salesman. "If you need to ask the price you can't afford it" There's no way I'd spend $90 + / month on a cell fone. with all the other cost of living these days..

in light of that (that most people don't want to afford 4G on a plan) ... what's the estimated dual carrier deployment to the rest of the country, say Dunedin. is this put back for 4G or steam rolling ahead

Does the plans over $120 rule to those of us on a Corportate plan? I think my plan is $79 per month but obviously there heaps of us on it? Does that's mean I have to get outlet administrator to activate it for the lot?

Speak to your account manager would be the best idea
