I just noticed Vodafones Mates plans, with a free 500MB every time you top up but only if you're under 25. Pretty sure age discrimination is illegal guys, what's the story?

New Zealand legislation, for your consideration:
Relevent section of the BORA
Relevent section of the Human Rights Act

You see the same thing at amusement parks, movie theatres, and countless other venues. In some cases it's as extreme as "children under 5 free". If this was illegal then it would've been stamped out decades ago.


Edit: Just saw the "16 years" part of the legislation. I'm not sure then!
