Hi there

This is our current standard charges for home phone, Internet and TV (we are in Petone, Lower Hutt): https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-cxwqd6B0PEcnhFTi1IVTJrSzA/view?usp=sharing

This is what I'm looking at getting: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v608/steviet/Vodafone_zps65c7fbad.jpg

In regards to VodafoneTV, does that include the ParliamentTV channel?

In regards to unlimited internet, if we sign up to a 12 month contract can we get a modem, and we use our own wireless router (rather than a wireless modem that seems to be included)? Would this cost, though?

Is the 'wiring maintenance' charge of $3.94 included in the $115/month price (likewise with the line rental) - or is that in addition to the $115?

It seems the pricing when I select VodafoneTV Sky doesn't get updated, in regards to the image I attach. What is the cost of this service?

I have probably left out a few vital details - if so please let me know.

Any guidance in the above matters/getting the best deal much appreciated.

Regards
Stevie

I'll help as best I can as I'm with Vodafone as well.

1. Parliament TV is part of Freeview so yes it's included.
2. I think it includes a modem (website should say) but yes you can use the supplied modem as your gateway and have it connected to your own wireless router which won't cost you anything extra.
3. Wiring maintenance is in addition to the $115.
4. If you select Sky through Vodafone TV it's the same price as getting it directly from Sky except Vodafone don't charge you for use of the decoder or for HD access.

Hope that helps a bit.

Many thanks for your reply.

Does the $115/month include the line rental (for phone), or is that in addition?

Many thanks for clarifying, John.

Are we assigned a new Static IP by upgrading from 60GB to unlimited data?

Okay, so I have calculated a potential bundle: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-cxwqd6B0PENXd0TnF1YkktWnM/view?usp=sharing (100Mb/ps download, 10Mb/ps upload speed)

Have thought of dropping the Home to Mobile 60 Yak Pak as "Free calls to your 5 favourite NZ mobiles or landlines" is included in the home phone + unlimited data Internet bundle.

However not sure if the final price in the PDF above would be minus the HighSpeed Internet Triple Service Discount of $13.74.

I know on the Vodafone website it says you can be assigned a Static IP if you contact them. Does it cost extra, though?

The service thing seems a big strange though; $143 if I don'r include a telephone line or $115 if I do include one - is it correct that they're charging me more not to have a telephone line installed?

Cable services have got static ip addresses. Your ip will stay the same unless you change entire account numbers or systems. This is no extra charge. Dsl services can be assigned static ips for a charge.

I don't know about fibre. But I assume it's the same as cable since it has similar provisioning.

Also I feel like the prices aren't showing properly for you. It's cheaper without a phone line than with aas you would expect. It's roughly $20 to add a landlines service on top of the broadband services. Yes that includes the rental charges but not wiring maintenance - which is recommended but optional.
