Telstra plays it simple, all business

Telstra plays it simple, all business

Telstra was a sedate affair, but kudos to them for making it pure
business. They had plenty of staff in T[life] , some queue space inside
the warm premises (it was frosty frosty out on George St with a nasty
ice wind to boot), plus flyers with the official plan details so you
could make up your mind in the 10 seconds before purchase. Actually,
they were taking the time to talk people through their current usage
patterns and which way they should lean… but couldn’t tell how many
people were being told “20MB outta be enough for anyone” (remember that isn’t even the LOWEST data plan).

However, there was no love given to the gathered queue, which by time of opening was around 80-100 strong. Given the icy conditions, it was a bit too “pure business” to show them absolutely no love — doesn’t compare well to the competition who were all treating queue members to warm drinks and tasty treats. There’s a “leaving people out in the cold” allusion here I can’t quite put my finger on…
