The important bits:
? $90 per month (+$20 if rural) ? that?s only $10 p/month more than Broadband Naked 30!
? High-speed/High-speed.
? 12-month contract, with a $149 ETF.
? Uses the same international bandwidth pool as Broadband Unlimited, so is prioritised the same way.
? This is live as of this afternoon (28/11/11).

The (not-so) fine print:
? Customers on existing Naked plans can request a plan change via the My Account section
o This will take effect on the next billing cycle, as per usual.
? Customers on a ?broadband+homeline? plan will need to call the Contact Centre
? If the customer is still in contract for their Homeline & Tolls, then these services will incur an ETF, because they?re being removed.
? The ?$60 Broadband Unlimited w/ no contract? special offer is not available for Broadband Naked Unlimited.

Hrm. Apparently bullet points turn into question marks on here.

Fantastic thank you!

Unfortunately for me my month kicked off on the 27th.  Will have to see if it can be switched early.

Actually.  Is iTalk still included?  It's not mentioned and we use ours quite a bit.

It's not live yet -- called the callcentre and they said I should try again in a few days :-(

They did say iTalk was included, though.

So you'll still be charging a rural fee from the 1st Dec even though there isn't such a thing?

No rural fee? Does that mean that urban people will have to pay more to prop up the rural customers like on landlines? Might stick to the plan I am on if there is likly to be a price rise on naked as a result of that change

Most recent ComCom decision was to get rid of the geographic difference in the wholesale regulated pricefor (B/E)UBA.

The urban/rural breakdown was 70/30 so the wholesale regulated cost goes up for people who were urban by ~$5-6 and cost goes down for people who were rural by ~$12-13... with the end result being the same price nationwide.

However the table in the ComCom decision seems to indicate this only applies to "New Lines" and existing line stay on the old pricing for now.

Steve, What will happen to all the "rural" exchanges and plans that those are based on? Will the current plans remain grandfathered or will ISP's be required to offer plans on all exchanges?

For example, Vodafone don't offer naked plan on "rural" exchanges.




My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

This is from the ComCom decision PDF ^

Remember this is just the cost for the use of copper line back to the cabinet/exchange and Chorus equipment in the cabinet/exchange.

So this is before tail/backhaul to the ISP handover, handover costs and all other ISP costs.

I have no idea how Slingshot can offer a $90 un-metered naked plan when $50 of that amount is going to Chorus.

ISP's will change their plan pricing and change what they offer where when they get around to it.

Surely it would be better for slingshot to change everyone urban over today/tomorrow to avoid this extra unwanted cost?
