New trans-Tasman roaming plan from 2Degrees

All Pay Monthly and Business customers can use the 10/10/10 plan, where they will pay 10 cents per minute for calls within Australia and to New Zealand, 10 cents per text and 10 cents per MB of data.

2degrees’ has launched a new roaming plan for trans-Tasman travellers. All Pay Monthly and Business customers can use the 10/10/10 plan, where they will pay 10 cents per minute for calls within Australia and to New Zealand, 10 cents per text and 10 cents per MB of data.

2degrees will also be launching Australian 7-day data roaming packs for all 2degrees customers, including Prepay, later this month. Packs include 300MB for $10 or 500MB for $15.

Chief Marketing Officer Malcolm Phillipps says 2degrees created competition in Trans-Tasman roaming in 2011 when it halved the cost of data roaming rates and these new rates mean customers no longer have to worry about using their mobile when visiting Australia.

“We know that people are still cautious when it comes to using their mobiles in Australia and often turn them off or only use them when they have access to WiFi. We want to change that by making roaming simple and affordable," says CMO of 2degrees Malcolm Phillipps.

“More than 70 per cent of the travel by Kiwis is to Australia so we have focused our attention on roaming across the Tasman first. Whether it’s the basics of calls, texts or emails, using social media or searching online, customers can now roam in Australia without the fear of bill shock when they return.”

"The launch of our new 7-day data packs later this month will also mean customers can use data for an effective rate of only 3cents/MB when in Australia and they have an entire week to use it. Our 10/10/10 proposition means we now have New Zealand’s lowest casual roaming rates in Australia and our customers are fully in control," he adds.

2degrees’ new roaming rates will automatically be applied to all Pay Monthly and Business customers when they land in Australia as long as roaming is enabled on their device.
