Rural wireless broadband - no data cap removal

From the latest Vodafone Covid 19 email

"From 2‌6 M‌a‌rc‌h 2‌02‌0, until the end of J‌u‌n‌e 2‌02‌0, we’ll be removing the data cap for our Home Fixed Broadband customers who are not already on an unlimited plan. This includes Fibre, Ultrafast HFC, VDSL and ADSL. Due to network constraints, this excludes Rural Broadband and Wireless Broadband"

Rural wireless broadband is excluded because "network constraints".

We have a 200gb limit and it costs $25 per extra 15gb. Wouldn't it be possible (and I'd say fair) to at least just increase the maximum cap by another 100gb until June. Or if Vodafone are going to charge us, then increase the $15 for 100gb.

Hi robbienz,

 

Vodafone offers unlimited broadband for rural customers during low-peak period throughout COVID-19 lockdown:

Thanks.

Jason.

Thanks, I saw the comm come through earlier. 

 

Thanks Vodafone for explaining why the limitation exists. 6 -7 GB a day (for the average month) has always been difficult. $25 for 15GB is rather punishing, especially when there is a week left to go of the billing month.  

 

I'm grateful to any probable solution. I'm not sure if Unlimited from midnight-9am will work for our situation (entertainment streamed via Chromecast) but I am sure there will be many customers out there who will be able to take advantage. 

 

As the comm said, 200GB should supply most work and education purposes.

 

thanks,

Why cant the same or similar deal apply to wireless broadband as has been applied to rural?

Hey @shemac Unlike Rural broadband, Vodafone wireless broadband has large data options now like 300GB and 600GB so our customer can re-sign on to these plans and they are still a lower cost than RBI you can find out more about the new wireless plan here https://www.vodafone.co.nz/broadband/internet-plans/

 

Thanks ^Ash
