Tis a bit confusing how its priced. 3gb valid for 3 months yet price on right column shows $50 a month. A case of table design not reflecting products valid for more than 1 month?

Comparing to other networks:

1gb for $30/month:
-$10 more than 2degrees
-$1 more and 500mb less data than Telecom

3gb for $50/3months (equiv to 1gb for $16.66 per month)
-Same price as 2degrees 3gb zone pack, however can be used anywhere, and lasts a month longer
-$1 more than telecom's 3gb/month plan but lasts triple the amount of time

5gb for $80/6months (equiv to 833mb for $13.33 per month)
-Telecom has no direct equiv quantity, however if you stacked multiple data packs it would come out to far more expensive and still not last as long
-Similar to 2degrees 6 month $99/12gb zone pack, except with less than half the data for $20 cheaper but can be used anywhere.

1gb one is poor value, 3gb and 5gb ones however are quite good. Nice improvements and i think we'll see a response from the other telcos in due course.

EDIT: $30/1GB on prepay, $20/1GB on-account.

Worth noting the recent additions to the on-account add-on roster:

 - 500MB for $10.00
 - 1GB for $20.00
 - 1.25GB for $25.00
 - 2GB for $30.00

All last 30 days. Details.

Can you please confirm (since it's not clear in the FAQ):

- If you buy 5GB and only use 3GB then next month you have 7GB when the next topup comes up?
- The 500MB topup bonus is valid for a month only?
- Can you buy 3GB/5GB and cancel anytime (for example if you go overseas for a period of time)?

If you buy 5GB it's valid for 6 months from date of purchase, Bundles do not accumulate

The 500MB is valid for the term of the package and I suspect would be used first

Yes you can cancel the repurchasing of the bundles

So you cannot stack bundles or have multiple of the same one with different expiries? This is something that is handy on Telecom. Unsure on 2degrees.

No you can't stack bundles and have multiple, You can only have one data bundle active at a time but you can purchase again anyway if one runs out

freitasm: Can you buy again without it creating another recurring charge?

Can you buy again just before the end of the current bundle?



No but you can cancel the re-purchase option straight away after purchasing this will not remove the data bundle

You can re-purchase the bundle at any time but you would not want to do this with data remaining on the current active bundle as you would lose it
