Nice!




Most problems are the result of previous solutions...

All comment's I make are my own personal opinion and do not in any way, shape or form reflect the views of current or former employers unless specifically stated

You have to pay an extra $10 to use 4G. Not available on prepay.

Remember folks: 4G is for mobile data only, voice is still carried over 2G/3G. This means you might have 4G coverage but no voice... Or you might have 2G coverage with voice/GPRS data but not 4G speeds...

I wonder if 2Degrees will be utilising some of Vodafone's 4G towers?

freitasm: 4G prices are the same as 3G prices. No change...

Hmm. The URL I linked above says "To experience 4G, you’ll need a 4G upgrade add-on or you’ll need to get 4G included on selected [...] plans". I wonder what this "4G upgrade add-on" is for if it's the same price as 3G.

Edit: Ah.

So there's no increase in data caps for 4G? That really defeats the purpose doesn't it? Most likely you will use more data with increased speed.

And use up your data cap faster and end up needing more moola for data Money Mouth
