quickymart: So...all the pricing and whatnot will be released tomorrow?



2Degrees announces pricing plans 9am 4th August, the day before the network goes live, as far as I'm aware

15c/txt off-net
2-5c/txt on-net

49-60c/min off-net (remember the MTR deal 2degrees have made with Vodafone..)
30c/min on-net, a rate which may fall after say 5 minutes calling

Down the track,
MMS/PXT - 40c
Pay as you go data, just a fixed low rate similar to the other $1/10mb offers.

tardtasticx: No one has said this yet, but I have a feeling they will start charging like overseas telco's, making you pay to receive txts and calls. I hope 2Degree's dont pull this move.


The reason that this exists in overseas markets such as the USA and Canada is because they don't use the Calling Party Pays (CPP) pricing model like most other Western countries. This means mobile numbers are local calls and mobile operators don't receive any fees for terminating calls on their network so charge for these. 

The fact we have CPP and operators receive money (MTR) means there exists no logical reason at all why 2 degrees would go down this path.



Ohk, cool. that was my only concern, that and them being cheaper than vodafone. But we will find out tuesday hopefully

My understanding is that 2 degrees will actually be paying Vodafone for all inbound traffic while roaming on the Vodafone network. This will obviously be absorbed by the MTR costs that 2 degrees will be receiving for the inbound traffic.

One can presume that the price 2 degrees are paying Vodafone is less than the inbound MTR revenue.
