There are still casual rates, but they're changing slightly from the current Prepay Plus casual rates.

Keep calm, and carry on posting.

You do not have to take a addon with prepay plus, there are still casual rates. 

 

IMO the people that are complaining about these changes are so low spend that no telco would want them.

 

 

So we don't have the right to complain ?

Why? Because 2Degrees are making changes. They have the right to do so. Just like you have the right to change providers. And that's pretty much the bottom line.

Yep, that's the forever changing nature of business now days. Suppliers put up charges, new products are introduced, and (most excitingly because I'm old enough to remember otherwise) you have choices. You can switch to another supplier, you can buy a new phone, you can start up your own telco. The world is your oyster.

which are more expensive than what I'm paying for currently 

 

Just because you can afford it doesn't mean everyone can

Same thing as the power company putting up prices.  It's annoying but it happens.

Is there a reason you're not interested in the Vodafone option that several people have suggested? It sounds like the best option for you.

Number portability was the real game changer here. Before that, changing providers was quite impractical.

So true ghettomaster. Trying to change in the 90s meant starting over from the beginning with a phone that had so many limitations and a telco who struggled with something called "reception". Today pick the best option, move your number, and it's all done. Sometimes I don't think we all appreciate the journey it's taken to get this far. Just imagine what it will be like in 2025.
