Are New Zealand mobile carriers out of touch?
With two days remaining before my contract rolls over, this month I have used:
- 2,112mb of 1,948mb data*
- 90 of 300 minutes
- 54 of 2,500 texts
I am with Vodafone—and don’t know if other carriers are better but—it seems to me these mobile plans are totally out of touch with how we use our devices.
I clearly don’t send a lot of SMS messages (possibly due to iMessage) and I don’t make a lot of voice calls (due in part to Skype no doubt) but I don’t think twice about using my mobile to access the internet, stream music, watch videos etc—regardless of whether I am on wifi or 3G.
I obviously need to be more careful.
*I had to pay $12 for a 500mb “add-on” to get through the last two days of my contract.
Surely there are more data-focused plans for smartphone users.
2GB a month just isn’t enough.
