Some interesting changes afoot over in camp red. Offers gone. VDSL gone(? really?). But some smart sounding new plan ideas. Unlimited $80 / mo (or $70 with phone) if you agree to no phone support is pretty cool.

 

Press release up at: http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/BU1710/S00628/full-stream-ahead-with-vodafones-powerful-new-plan.htm as well for some more detail.

"2 Vodafone Wi-Fi Extenders"

 

uh.. ok. That isn't going to end up hurting duplex rates at all.

 

 

 

The adding of a cheaper chat option, i actually like.

 

If vodafone bring in a chat option that is half as good as their call center, I'll be ok with this.

 

Looking at the "chat with us" option, this still goes to a public forum however....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lack of VDSL, what i suspect they intend is 3 theirs, DSL, Fibre and Cable. - Indicating if VDSL is possible, supply VDSL alternatively EUBA/BUBA fallback.

 

IMO Cable shouldn't be ranked there but anyway...

Good to see they are offering a cheaper plan that doesn't include support, I am sure if you called them on that plan they will still help yah!
24 months is pretty stiff for a non support, naked connection. 
No VDSL? Seems to have been some blurred lines between ADSL and VDSL and merging the product to xDSL with VF and Spark from some forum comments. Maybe they will just sell xDSL and you get whats best..

Chorus driven system to upgrade xDSL lines to VDSL.

 

Chorus get better rep due to better speeds etc.

 

RSP's get an offset for costs of modem and W/E

 

Customer's get a faster connection which moving into digital adoption is a requirement.

Now begs the question if a customer moves to one of those plans will they get moved to ADSL too?

 

I could imagine people moving because it is "cheaper" then complaining their speeds are slow since they've gone from VDSL to ADSL in the process.

VDSL no way will be gone it's an error just saying ADSL @mikehales should get this checked out

 

They are moving as many subs over from ADSL to VDSL as possible right now been proactive sending out the new Ultra home hub if customers don't have a modem that supports VDSL

Their minimum used to be 80GB now back to 40GB??

 

 

 

I also still cant understand why you would have a zero frills more thrills plan and have a contract twice as long as the other where they offer free wifi extenders NEON and "Virus Protection" (*Cough* I mean false sense of security)

 

 

 

Another edit: Looking at the "clothed" plans the contract times are also out of proportion.

It doesn't say anything about speeds so I assume they Max speeds for what your line can handle?

 

So gigabit unlimited fibre for $84.99 per month?

Don't think it is correct, I just tried my Sister's address on it who has Fibre with Vodafone already and if she wanted Gigabit Naked fibre it would be $109.99 a month

 

Still a decent deal.
