RAW DATA: Telecom, Vodafone iPhone 5s/5c plans

Vodafone, which today wiped its $10 surcharge on 4G plans (with Telecom's 4G launch pending), has released its iPhone 5s/5c plans (see below).

Telecom has yet to post iPhone 5s/5c pricing on its website.

yawning and still yawnng..this wouldhave been big news maybe last year but now the iphone is old rope..all this shows is that telecom needs to give its pr team a kick in the rear...

That's Telecom standard pricing, I doubt that they wouldn't offer any extra discount during an iphone launch....

and still, we wait for meaningful data caps at reasonable prices, i don't care for "unlimited minutes and txts", build a 4g network, and hamstrung users with low data caps for obscene monthly fees, yawn

Telecom's plans also include 30GB per month of data over their wifi network, which has hotspots all over the place on phoneboxes.

Have you tried using the WIFI hotspots???? Utter crap

I still laugh at the notion that 4G means that you need bigger caps.
That's just mis-guided.

People want bigger caps (and fair enough) - but that has nothing to do with 4G. Peoples general behaviour and habits on mobile phones stay the same - no matter what they *think*. So that equals the same amount of data used.

Using 4G means that you get a more pleasant experience doing whatever it is you do.

Back to the story - it looks like Vodafone's handset prices are $100 cheaper?
And the plans across both providers are fairly equivalent.
Just over two weeks till Telecom gets 4G in Auckland.

Nice to see competition taking effect. :)
