RBI data caps

Just wondering..... is there any chance of increasing the RBI data cap beyond 30 in the near future? With Netflix etc, us poor old RBI users are getting hammered with costs! Just thinking out loud :-) (and if you don't ask, ya won't find out!!)

Shop around, there are other RBI providers:

You can get 200GB + a bonus 200GB off peak for $199 / mth

Sorry I did not make it plain enough.In reply to Coffeebaron, I am very happy with Vodafones service, I just thought part of the RBI deal with the govenment was to have some sort of parity with other plans. Obviously not. Vodafone are not keeping up with the play when you see other providers, see the previous post

All good Johnr.

I just don't see anything in my inbox or snail mail telling me about these wonderful things. We who have been "pioneers" of RBI get not a lot!!

Without me in my road Vodafone would not have the costomers they do now, I promoted all this over poxy dialup and satellite  when Voafone first got coverage in our area.

OK, sounds like I am "blowing my own trumpet" but it is all true!!!

New subscibers to the system quite often get better deals than the rest of us, case in point, I had to start a new 24 month contract to move up to 30 Gb  and free phone calls. I can't see a way of finding out how long my contract has to go by the way. At the moment, with university kids home, I pay $135+ for 60Gb. And the big "PAIN IN THE A**E is waiting for the the plan to die BEFORE you can add to it. I wish I could just buy the Gigs I want when I want!!

Rant over :-)

Just had an interesting few minutes with the Vodafone RBI sales team. They tell me that there is no 80gB plan either being released or coming in the near future as the Geekzone article says! Maybe the right hand doesn't know what the left is doing!

The 80GB plan has been launched exclusively at Fieldays. It will be added to the website and available to the sales team in the next couple of weeks.

Me too, RBI is a great product and people have been waiting for the data bump for a while. Will be great to have 4G RBI out there too.
