Tut Tut Vodafone.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

So lets see them wriggle out of this one. Nice to see the CC take the right view on things like this.

I don't necessarily agree that Vodafone are doing anything wrong. What they are doing is very stupid since they are essentially saying that they're not interested in 70% of Telecom's customer base but as to whether they are doing anything wrong legally? I don't think so.  Portability is all about allowing you to move your number from one carrier to another, it's not about guaranteeing you can get X plan once you do move.

It's very likely this is a result of Vodafone's over budget and overdue billing system - I don't know why Vodafone just aren't open and admit this is the cause.

It says that you are not supposed to have different levels of service for people that have moved a number vs those that have your native numbers. Telecom have a list of exemptions they had to apply for for their old exchanges, vodafone have not.
