I think there was reference to exciting changes not necessarily being new plans

I think the prepaid data options really need changing $30 for 512MB looks ridiculous compared with 2Degrees $20 for 1GB, which I think is the sweetspot. 

Vodafone should seriously introduce a mid-range, the jump from $10 to $30 is huge, and the increase in data does not reflect this at only 512MB. 512/1GB at $20 I think is the new competitive that we should be seeing.

Not like for like comparison.   2degrees 1GB for $20 is only valid in certain metro areas. Outside those areas it is $10/100MB. 

Vodafone’s (and Telecom’s) datapacks are all nationwide – i.e. same price wherever you are in the country.

But that's not really the point. The point is that 2degrees is able to offer them at those competitive rates, and for those of us who are in Auckland most of the time, they are far superior. 

There shouldn't be any reason Vodafone can't offer something reasonably close, even if its 512MB/$20, I can't see what would be stopping them from doing that.

I was talking to johnr and he seemed rather tedious to point out that it is NOT new plans, instead it will be some kind of "permanent promotion"

Is this regarding the upcoming "exciting" announcement from VF?

Hey John
Im curious if you have custom plans? With the end of the 3GB promotion, 250MB is too little for me to take up a contract.
Something like the Smart2 Plan with less minutes and more data would be amazing.
Cheers

Hi 
Plans are fixed we have something coming to replace the 3Gig promo that is permament,
People are getting worked up over nothing,
John


Later on;
No its not another promotion coming, It's permanent 



Not new plans, not a promotion, something permanent.

Is it something for off-contract peeps? I think this is Voda's weakest market, in the prepay cheaper zone. Uni students don't have a whole lot of money to throw around, and for a lot of us, we aren't guaranteed to stay in New Zealand for the next 2 years, so a decent prepay plan would be awesome.

I think he is saying that Uni students quite often go on an OE after finishing uni,  so locking themselves into a 24 month contract when they only plan to be in the country for, say, a year,  is kinda silly.

@rhodan

A lot of uni students dont know where theyre gonna end up working once they graduate, hence the 2 year contract being a pain
