Holy ****!

www.shareeverything.co.nz

Share Everything plans starting from $69 for unlimited calls, texts, and 1.5GB data. Extra users can be added for $20/month (if signed up during promo period - normally $29/month), up to a maximum of 3 additional users.

So for $69 + ($20 x 3), you could have 4 people with unlimited calls and texts, albeit with a minuscule amount of data. 

Can't wait to see the price wars from the other two!

Sounds a little like vodafone family...

So $69 as a minimum for the master SIM (dad for example) then
$29 per additonal user (discounted to $20 as a promo offer).

You get unlimited texts, and unlimited calls to landline numbers. and a data bucket to share.

Unlimited calls to landlines is easy to give away as that scenario continues to shrink every year (think it's -11% volumes year on year now), so you pay for calls to mobiles.

Interesting.....

2degrees' plans have unlimited calls to mobile AND landline included - to anyone, not just within you group. Totally different to Vodafone Family.

"Get 2GB FREE Carryover Data when you join any Plan before 31 Jan 2014."

I'm guessing this is a one off? Also guessing if the master account buys a data pack, that is also shared too.

Is there anything to stop me going on the $149 Business plan and getting 4gb shared data versus the $149 Pay Monthly plan and get 3.5gb data?

They will ask for proof of your business. That's all I believe.

Same construct as telecoms ultra+ plans! but just starts from a lower price point but also with much less data.

http://www.telecom.co.nz/business/ourproducts/mobilephones/ultraplus/

Telecom one starts from $119, but has more data at that price compared to the 2d one.

Additional mobiles costs 39 on telecom but 29 on 2d, however, you can add a tablet to the telecom one for only $10, so depending on the devices it may or may not work out as good.

And it is available to a consumer subscriber, not just a business subscriber. And you can already share with a tablet on 2degrees for free. We've had that for a couple of years now.

Point taken on the tablet one, I'd forgotten that, but the 'must be a business' requirement is pretty silly.
Anybody can go in and sign up and claim to be a business. (And, unless you requires them to be a business with limited liability, anybody can do that totally legitimately by claiming to be a self employed consultant or something.)

I used to be on a telecom business broadband plan years ago because it had a higher data cap and better overage rates, nobody ever asked me to prove I was a business.

I didn't know Telecom and 2degrees were the same company ...

On another note; I don't see the point in the $89 plan. It doesn't give much extra!
