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.
