2degrees: Hold off on long term mobile contracts

Telecommunications company 2degrees, which will be launching the third nationwide 2G and 3G mobile phone network in August, is encouraging New Zealanders not to lock themselves into long-term contracts.

CEO Mike Reynolds says the majority of people want to talk and text who, where and when they want without paying through the nose for it. He cited a NZ Herald article that reported 91 percent of New Zealanders don’t even use their phone to access the net.

“For them, the barrage of marketing hype, complex pricing structures and expensive handsets, is bamboozling and irrelevant to their actual day to day needs.”

Reynolds says now is not the time to tie into expensive two or three-year mobile contracts.

“2degrees will be unveiling some exceptional value price plans as we countdown to our launch in August. Our research indicates that Kiwis are tired of being locked into lengthy contracts and being stung with high prices to call friends on competing networks,” he says.
