I wish they would do the same here and I would then go off prepay onto a plan as I'm sure a lot of prepay users would.
Right now there is no incentive to go on a plan for me as I have to pay plan charges a month plus data ontop ..
I wonder if Vfone UK has the same percentage of prepay users compared to account as NZ does ?
If they do it gets more on account and monthly payments coming in..
Just knowing you had that amount a month to use even if you didn't use it would encourage people to use the internet on their mobiles and it would also get more onto monthly plans which I'm sure would make them more money..
say the customer base is 100,000 for example:
100,000 users on account paying $50 a month = $5,000,000 a month coming in every month
30,000 users on account paying $50 a month = $1,500,000 coming in every month
70,000 users on prepay paying when they run out $unknown a month but certainly less than above I'd imagine ...
But then again perhaps I'm thinking about it wrongly .. They must be making enough out of it all now so no change ..
