Had a browse through, the plans, and I believe the majority on this forum (and hence your users) would think that the plans are not attractive at all (ie:  They Sxxx)

So...  Allowing for B+W to make some profit, let's suggest some plans for them....


#1:  $40 - The local network grabber

30 any network mins
1000 B+W only mins
Any network txt 500

Essentially, this is based on $1/min for a other network call (quite a good money earner there), $10 txt, and "almost free" own network calling (which doesn't cost that much, really, without the interconnection fees)


#2:  $50 - For users who "don't want to care about which network they use"

100 any network mins
Any network txt 500

This would actually be $10 txt, plus $0.4/min calls.  Even with interconnection fees of $0.25/min (approx estimate), still quite a good earner.


#3:  Prepay / "Debit pay"

B+W network:  $0.2/min
Other mobile network:  $1/min
Landline numbers:  $0.5/min


I believe these plans are attractive, and would draw quite a bit of business to B+W.  More suggestions, and hopefully, they might listen to our suggestions!

Ufortunately you'll never get anything close to that (expecially for on network calling) with the rates they are paying.

Prepay with no monthly fees would make it competative

on account plans are past and expensive, imo.

as above suggesting is all and good but need to know what rates they're paying wholesale. Love to see someone come up with a monthly fee for voicemail instead of 20C a pop

That's true....  We would need to know their wholesale rates....

But considering calling cards that piggy-back on the Vodafone network (those that you can call overseas "free" from Vodafone Mobiles) as an analogy…  You can call an Australian landline for $0.075/min… 

So presumably, a wholesale rate per minute charged by Vodafone shouldn't be more than $0.10/min….  That is of course, if Vodafone's fair and does not charge its competitors an exhorbitant rate...
