sbowness:

 

From the Human Rights Commission page on the subject:

 

  • It is unlawful to refuse to supply goods, services or facilities, or to provide them on less favourable terms or conditions, because of someone’s age. The definition of facilities includes banking, insurance, grants, loans and credit or finance.
  • Note: It is not unlawful to provide goods, services or facilities at a reduced rate to people of a particular age.

 

@sbowness From memory  

 

You can discriminate with age as long as the 'rest' of the market can get the same bundle, but they may have to pay higher.

 

 

 

The Vodafone X plan is almost a carbon copy of the Prepay Carry Over $19 plan Vodafone has.

 

Vodafone X is cheaper, but it doesnt have carry over so perhaps this is where the $3 comes from?

The under 25's can have the cheaper data I'll take the cheaper car insurance thanks.

 

 

 

 

This... 

 

Check your privilege old folks..

 

 

Insurance premiums are based on crash statistics and actual data.  Just as driving a certain model of car, or making modifications to a car can affect premiums. 

 

This is quite different to pricing of mobile plans which are usually set by marketing teams as opposed to mathematicians. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yeah, I feel discriminated against for being put into a group where i have to pay more due to age.
