Currently my and my wife's phones are provided by my business (she's an employee) as is VDSL broadband in the house (home office). All with Spark and to be honest I have no complaints.


However both our phones are getting a bit past it and given that I am miserly yet tech loving, I have issues with spending $1400 for a nice S9 or similar...


Anyone know if any of the cellular companies VF, 2D, Skinny or other are offering sweetheart deals for switching over? 2D have the best advertised deal I've found so far, but still looking at > $100 month per phone to purchase an S9 or similar including the monthly account fee so would be spending around $300 all up per month for 2 phones plus VDSL. I'd also look at putting the 3 kids onto it if the plan suited but last I looked you could get a <$20 individual pre-pay whereas add-on to shared pay monthly was $25+

Not massive - maybe couple of hundred calls, 400 min per month for each phone? 1-4Gb data

skinny is a really good priced i mean you get unlimited calls for now 36$ a month used to be around 46$




you should really look into skinny for phone plans you can switch over very easy.




for internet idk.




but please check into skinny you could save hundreds. theres a 9$ plan that might be suitable for your children.




and they have binge internet 4$ for 12 hours.




also 2degrees check them for internet and they also have highly good prices.




good luck!
