I am wondering if there will be any new mobile post paid plans coming soon that will include international calling? I have to call home to New Zealand quite a lot and the $30 connect pack only provides $150 worth of calling.
For the first time I am actually looking at other providers to provide the solution that I need.
I have looked at Optus and Vodafone and they now both include, $150 minimum international calling with in their post paid plans, will Telstra look at something like this soon? as I feel that the $30 that I have to pay on top of my Telstra post paid plan is becoming a bit rich! I am almost paying over a $100 per month now for this.
If I choose Optus with a BYO plan it will cost me $50 per month on a 12 month contract, this includes unlimited calling and texting, 11GB of data and a massive $500 worth of calling/texting overseas to New Zealand every month!
How can Telstra compete with that?
I really do not want to leave Telstra as you do have the best coverage and service by far! But I also feel that you are forcing my hand as well. I think the bit that hurts the most is that Telstra Freedom Plus Pre-paid customers now get the $200 of international calling included in their $30 plan, Yet I have to pay $30 on top of my post paid plan.
How is this fair
Thanks for listening, I hope someone in Telstra marketing sees this and sees an opportunity to retain and delight its loyal post paid customers.
