Prepay Plus customers can now add Carryover Chat 60 for $8 per month, with 60 carryover minutes (12 month validity) and now with 250 TXTs per month (previously zero).

No data but I think this is by far the best voice/TXT plan in existence? Would be nice to add some token data next ^_^

If they added yes some data which you can buy separately I would actually ditch out my grandfathered 19$ pack and go for this.
Like at least 500MB would be suitable.

This might go down well for people wanting to use more data.
$8 for 60min/250txt
$20 for 1gb of data
$28 total

You have to be realistic, 500mb is what is offered on the $19 plan though. And they arent going to include that for less than half the price.
If you mean as an addon that you could buy in addition to this plan, well their $10 data addon is 100mb, and i cant see this going up to 500mb any time soon.

They should call this the Grandfather plan :)
Now lets see Rhys Darby dress up as an old guy in his next ad :)





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Probably better just to go for their $29 pay monthly plan then. 300 minutes, unlimited text and 1GB data, for $1 more.

Well actually if 500mb WAS $10, then your self combo would be only $1 less than the $19 rollover wich is 500mb/unlimited text and 120 ROLLOVER minutes?

So really the $10 ad on should be 500mb anyway?
