Has anyone on a RBI plan switched providers from Vodafone? 

 

I'm pretty happy with Vodafone but we're using up 80gb quite easily and topping up (for an extra $20) every month.

 

So, I'm looking to see if it is worthwhile switching. I see Ultimate, Wireless Nation and Netspeed all offer more data for a similar price. But they want to charge a pretty large installation cost and lock you in for 12-24 months. If I have to pay to switch and get locked into another contract, it's probably not worth it.

 

I guess my big question is, will any of these other providers reuse the same Vodafone antenna (and maybe even modem?) thus saving us the install cost?

We're doing RBI 4G.

Plans available here:

With regards to what you're looking for:

1) No contract - 30 days notice to cancel
2) You can BYO router & antenna and we'll drop $14.37 off the advertised price on our website. We'll supply a new sim.
3) $2/GB for excess data.

AFAIK there is no reason why they cant reuse the antennae as it more than likely be pointed at the same cell
