Data plans

I’ve always been a fan of how 3 can provide services on the cheap. In fact, for the longest time, their data plans have been the cheapest (that I’ve found). I was enjoying paying $29 for 1GB of use, and now they’ve upgraded it to 2GB of use. Kudos to them!

However, it seems that Vodafone, provides a 5GB plan, at just $39. Best of all, if you roam from the 3G network, you get onto Vodafone’s GPRS network, which covers 95% of Australia. This does not incur a roaming charge, like being a 3 customer does (roaming with Telstra, and you’re slapped with a ridiculously large $1.65/MB charge).

Looks like I’m considering a Vodafone change?

    I’m going through this dilemma at the moment.

    I’m going to go with 3. For 1gb, for $29.

    A shit deal, no? Well, it’s the only option that’s not a 24 month contract (at sub-$150 kind of prices).

    Given how quickly prices are coming down, and I’m sure the iPhone will be released inside of 24 months, which should cause a further drop among plans, then I’ll think about a contract then.

    For now, I’ll stick to 3.
