2degrees: Hi all,
The 2c text rate is something that?automatically kicks in?on top-up from Wed 31 March.
So when you top-up your account you not only get the free text bundles (which go up in quantity based on the different top-up amounts), the 22cent calling rate but?you now also get the 2c text rate from 2degrees to 2degrees. The 2cent text rate is valid for 30-days just like the other rates etc mentioned.
If you're a customer and you've topped-up within the last 30-days you'll automatically switch onto the 2c rate which will last through to your current top-up expiry.
Whether you were partly responsible or not, the Herald article totally misrepresents the on-net TXT offer!!
Can you please clarify!
Is the 22c/min rate for on-net calls to 2D mobiles and to landlines PERMANENT, or only within 30 days of topping up (ie. status quo)?
If the status quo remains, then the Herald is making much ado about nothing - essentially the only change I see is that on-net TXTs after 100 are only charged at 2c instead of 9c, and this hardly sets the world on fire like the Herald articles suggests!! To be honest if that is the case then this kinda reads more like a misleading advertisement for 2 Degrees than a news article about "slashing" of mobile calling and txting charges ...
