This is going to be tough for vodafone and telecom.

Shareholders expect companies to increase profit each year - the only company increasing profit now is 2degrees.

Guess that 2degrees customers are low value though - bluechip customers will stick to the large telcos.

alasta:  After all 2degrees' billing system doesn't currently appear to be able to handle multiple connections on a single customer account.



Actually, we have in fact just launched multi-connect - single account, multiple connections. The advertising hasn't begun yet (which is probably why it wasn't announced yesterday), but the first couple of customers are in the process of signing up. I think it's going "above the line" as the marketers say in a couple of weeks.

EDIT - there's another thread somewhere where someone quotes a CSR on that too with some more details, but GZ is running slow for me this morning so I can't find it....

Excellent - thanks for that. Finally I will be able to get my iPad connection onto the same bill as my phone connection which will save a lot of hassle.

Yep, give it a couple of weeks for us to get the worst kinks sorted out. :-)

I only hope that when 2D gets more successful that they don't sell out to the likes of Telstra..

Why not? Telstra could bring in extra cash and or even better deals!

Let's hope you guys also sort out you notification reminders at 2am...

We're working on rationalising the notifications at the moment. Sorry!

That would be useful since I have 4 phones on 2D. But two are monthly and 2 a prepaid so I wonder how that's going to work?
