I'd say suitable for really low users which don't use mobile internet.



I disagree.


Each month I buy a $4 data pack with gives me 500MB, twice as much as the 250MB you get on the $9 combo from Skinny or 2D. Between calls (4c per min) and texts (2c ea) I generally spend less than a dollar. For me it is less than $5 per month with twice the data of the $9 plans, this makes it a good plan for someone that uses mobile internet but wants the best value.


I could spend $8 on a 1.25GB pack + up to $1 on texts and calls.  This would give me FIVE times as much data for the same price as the Skinny or 2D $9 plans.  AND that is $9 per 31 days which is better than $9 per 28 days with Skinny.





BUTthe $9 2D pack I run my kids iPad (with cellular) on when they managed to max out the 10Gb 2D Data Hunt promo... 250mb*12months+10Gb= 13Gb/year for $9x12= $108


Thus 13000mb(rounded as the telco's do) /$108.00 = 1.203c/mb


vs your 500mb/$4=1.25c/mb




Throw in the extra "Unlimited" 1hr/day Data Clock bonus 2D are running till June31st and ... PROFIT :)

I have just done some testing and calling from a 2Degrees mobile (Pay monthly) to a Warehouse mobile number minutes don't get deducted off the 2 Degrees minutes balance



That's interesting. It directly conflicts with what 2 degrees said to me: "[W]hen it says with 19 carryover combo you would be getting unlimited calling minutes from 2 degrees to 2 degrees, that means any number either paying invoices or doing top up with 2 degrees system. Ware house[sic] does have their own top up system and value packs"

When you call a WHM number from 2Degrees mobile and you check your usage (Pay monthly) it's listed as calling a Landline number
