We found this website ispreview a month or so ago it seems to have the most up to date list of all the current prices in the market, so we've kind of been using it as a gauge to see where we sit:
The Vodafone deal is good, but we think if you consider all the contracts, termination fees etc. of others... we're pretty competitive.
Global Mode is going to be interesting, basically we were thinking how could we be better / different to some of the other global modes out there. It's going to be an additional $10 a month but this is for a reason: We're basically going to dedicate a whole slice of bandwidth to this feature (which is expensive for us), but this means it will be premium streaming without all the lag you'll get on other Global Modes which are just in the same shared pool as all the other traffic. Does that make sense / sound like a good idea? At the end of the day we just thought as users ourselves we'd rather have good streaming than laggy streaming, and the only real way to ensure that is to slice off a portion of dedicated bandwidth which we then have to pay for somehow.
Tempted by the plans, $5 is $5. Vodafone only works out cheaper due to the discount I get from my on contract work phone. They don't offer as big a discount as they use to when they first started offering it. So will look at taking a plunge just need to find out my exact anniversary date before I make the switch. Plus their service and some comments they have made lately on forums have put me off.
Will stick with unotelly service for now, no lag and I pay around $30-$40 (cant remember the exact total) a year for that service. Possibly your global mode may appeal to other people that don't want to mess with changing DNS settings etc.
