Fantastic, I've been a Vodafone customer for broadband, home phone, sky and mobile for a few years now, and I would never dream of going back to telecom.

Always very happy with the specials, and support offered by Vodafone. I can't say the same for the competition.

Awesome stuff. I am on the 30GB Naked DSL plan in Auckland. More data for same price is always welcome :-)




Do whatever you want to do man.

Excellent news.
Great to see that the double your data blocks are getting larger as well with no pricing change.

One question - is there a churn fee to transfer from another N-DSL provider and not be on a 12-month contract?

Doing an online signup it appears to be $101.20 but then this thread confuses the issue for me...

I am on the old Ihug Broadband 3 plan with 20Gb.

What will my new allowance be?

clearly it stays the same! Did you even click on the link and see your plan is not on the list?

Thanks

Fantastic! Does this mean that the Double Your Data pack with Ultimate Naked would actually give you another 45GB for $30.60?

From what is on the website it appears that the DYD packs are also +50% but I'm awaiting confirmation on this and also if the data will be allocated on the 1st for everyone on eligible plans or if the increased allowance is only effective from your next rollver/billing date (EG 23rd July)

Of course I clicked on the link. I'm not a complete Moron :)

I have not seen a reference to my plan on the VF site for years.

I guess I am on a "too good to be true plan" that VF would love me to relinquish?

Off topic - but the answer is no cost to churn & no contract. It is a glitch on the sign up form, so best do it by phone, or PM the Vodafone guy on that thread to take the charge back off once you churn.

Exception is if you are moving between a Telecom Wholesale connection and a LLU connection.

I didn't go through with this change for my parents in the end, as they are moving to a Rural area where Vodafone choose not to provide N-DSL, so staying with WxC N-DSL.
 




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

That has just made me change my choice of ISP from Telecom to Vodafone.
Esp with the red network, own equipment for me makes a big difference.




The little things make the biggest difference.

Going to love this. Steam has been killing my cap lately, 30 + 30 just didnt cut it. 45 + 45 might let mne catch up a bit.


Vodafone just needs to have free steam data and i'd be set.
