I am currently on the friends and family Telecom deal with 500 gigs where I got the first two months free.

I am keen to move to the Vodafone 100 Megabit Warp speed 150 Gig plan (Now I know I cant get UFB for another 2 years) - and Figure I will move to the 150 Gig plan until a larger one is eventually rolled out.

As it will cost me I believe $200 to break the Telecom deal - just wondered if anyone was able to wangle a similar first two months free from Voda so the switch over doesnt hit the pocket too hard?

Have had friends getting door to door Voda reps offer this for Light Speed - but havent heard anyone getting it for the more expensive Warp Speed yet.

It's possibly best to phone them up and ask, a bit of a shame that UFB isn't coming any sooner!

just off the phone from Voda - first time the girl told me they didnt do naked warp speed and then offered to transfer me to sales and promptly hung up on me!

Second time I called they said they dont do 2 months free up front and that that is an old plan only Telstra offered - yet my mate got it yesterday.

Think it might take a wee while for everyone to be on the right page after the Voda/ TCL merger.

Don't worry, I've been disconnected a few times when on the line to Vodafone - but claim that it was a fault with their system and not a deliberate disconnection.

done the dirty deed.
Will be a Vodafone 100 megabit broadband customer from next week - just had to suck it up and wear the $199 Telecom break fee :(

Looking forward to faster uploads though :)
