New Telecom business plans allow data sharing

Two Ultra+ plans allow businesses to purchase core pack and add further employees

Telecom has introduced a new range of ‘Ultra+’ plans which are designed to give small business customers unlimited calling and texts, alongside the ability to share a monthly data allowance between employees.

The Ultra+ plans allow businesses to purchase a core plan for either $119 or $219 (which include 3GB and 8GB of data, respectively) and add additional employees to those plans for $39 each (up to three on the cheaper plan, and up to eight for the premium offering).

“While customer needs and expectations may have changed, what hasn’t changed is the ongoing focus small businesses must have on cost and efficiency, and the importance they place on personal relationships,” Telecom business marketing head, James McLeod, said. “Interestingly, these customers still rely very heavily on calling, reflecting the personal nature of NZ’s SME sector.”

“These plans were designed to give businesses a simple mobile package which eliminates the danger of ‘bill shock’ while allowing our customers to talk on their mobiles as much as they need to.”

McLeod also said the Ultra+ plans are part of a broader package of services that Telecom is offering to small business customers. These include the personalised service provided through the telco’s business hubs, access to a free national Wi-Fi network, and the free upgrade to Telecom’s 4G network which is scheduled to launch on November 12.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
