why would they when the Telecom plans have much bigger, permanent, data allowances already?
e.g. $40 plan gets you 500MB on XT, $60 gets you 1GB, $100 gets you 2GB.
same price points on Voda gets you only 250MB, 250MB, and 500MB respectively.
Everyone have different needs of course. The new vodafone plans will be pleasing to some.
I disagree slightly with your analysis.
The vodafone $45 monthly plan gets you....
1gb data (permanent)
Free voicemail (zzzzz....)
The nearest telecom $40 plan gives you...
500 mb data
So, in my opinion this vodafone plan is significantly better value than telecoms offering.
nope. 1GB is only for the first 6 months AND even then only if you sign a contract. if you want just monthly then you don't get it, or if you take a 12 or 24 month contract then you have to live out the rest of your contract (6 or 18 months) with only 250MB of data.
for sure, those who want lots of minutes and only 250MB of data will prefer the voda plan, but then for smartphones data is the most important feature.
It is clearly stated that the 1gb data allowance applies to the one month plan....
