According to The Line and NZ Herald the deal is:
Talk 1 Unlimited calls to any landline in NZ during weeknights and weekends $15 p/month
Talk 2 Unlimited calls to any landline in NZ at anytime $20 p/month
Talk 3 Unlimited calls to any landline in NZ, plus Ihugs top 5 overseas calling destinations, any time $40 p/month
Now, according to Stuff Ihug will charge $45 for a phone line with the Talk 1,2,3 plans being extra. So, what is the truth? The way I heard it on the radio it was only going to cost me $15 for a phone line if I choose 'Talk 1'. Mr Rushworth stated that this was revolutionary and expects 'New Zealanders to flock to Ihug in droves because Telecom has been ripping them off for years'
Interesting comments but what is the truth about the plans and what is the catch?.
Well here is one catch which was only reported in The Line and was not picked up by the other major media outlets:
'Calls over one hour are charged at 25cents per minute. However, customers can call back at no extra cost'
Interesting interpretation of 'Unlimited'.
