    Uh, their deals still suck.

    Prices stated are for most Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch suburbs, all other areas add $10 except for Total Home Starter package, add $5. Please call us on 123 to confirm pricing in your area.

    I really don't get why people still claim their prices are poor.
    Let's use an example -
    Telecom Total Home. $105/month. Currently 20GB, soon to be 40GB. Unlimited national calls to landlines, up to 2 hrs per call.
    What do, say, Orcon have similar?
    15GB, and unlimited national calls to landlines, up to 1hr per call, for $100, or $110 for 25GB. So currently, they're pretty on-par. After the data rollover for Telecom, it'll be comparable to either $120/month for 35GB or $130/month for 45GB with Orcon. Still for $105. Even if you tack on the living-in-the-middle-of-nowhere fee of $10, making it $115, the Telecom package still presents better value. Even itnernational calling - Telecom is $2/2hr to Aus, Orcon is $3.95/hr. Orcon 43c/min to mobiles, Telecom 38c/min (30c to Telecom mobiles).

    Or if I use my own situation, paying $125/month currently with Telecom for landline and 80GB broadband. For the same price with Orcon, I'd get only 55GB. Soon I'll get 160GB on my current plan, and the closest I could get to that with Orcon is $235/month for 205GB (or, far lower, $155/month for 105GB).

    Either way I look at it, for mid- and higher-use customers, Telecom are certainly competitive, if not better value depending on your specific requirements. Only their very basic plans are a let-down atm, but once it bumps up to 5GB for the same $75, it'll be in the ballpark.

    Windows 7 x64 // Phenom II 955 // 8GB DDR3-1333 // GTX460 1GB // Corsair Force3 120GB SSD

    I'm on the biggest total home plan because the others are not much cheaper (or even the sane price!) and are significantly worse.
