Interesting. On the face of it the music pass is a good option for anyone who subscribes to Tidal’s HiFi tier. I worked at Voda when Tidal launched in NZ and tested the data usage of lossless streaming vs. 320k Spotify. ~21GB later my conclusion was that the network was up to it but data caps weren’t at the time (and that Tidal desperately needed a local CDN).

Can't even get 4G proper in Wellington, let's see how much Netflix one can stream. Better, let's see how the network will cope with a few streams going on.

Maybe instead of new products and services VF should concentrate on fixing what they already “try” to offer.

I don't know how i feel about this.  Sure might be good for some people but I have never liked the fact that you have to use a said service because its zero rated (i.e. net neutrality).

 

Also facebook messenger should be under social. In fact all the chat ones should be under social.  I am going to hate to see what this does to their network at peak times

Walking down Wellington Thorndon Quay and Willis St... Lucky to get 4G, more often than not stops at H+. Or Johnsonville, lucky if you get more than two bars signal.

saw the ad on youtube this morning while waking up.

 

 

 

at first i though, huh, unlimited.

 

They have finally caved...

 

 

 

going into it more, i realized it was another ugly zero rate scheme. (Yeah i know we have Socializer, that doesn't hold the "unlimited but restricted" tags though)

 

Interestingly, this exact pass feature is used in EU.. except they have different options for zero rated services, such as youtube under video (which vodafone do not)

 

 

 

also the notes about "no tethering" on the passes could be interesting...

 

 

 

 

 

Overall, not a fan.

It is a rather bizarre selection. Spotify is not included in the music pack, which I would imagine would be used more than the listed apps combined. Video includes Netflix, Sky Go/Neon and TVNZ, but does not include Lightbox (owned by Spark), ThreeNow Māori TV, or Youtube. Also from the fine print "Where video content is included, it will be optimised to be similar to DVD quality" (which I assume means the SD version of Netflix)
