Want to buy the Samsung Galaxy Note8 on a plan? Here's the definitive list of Note8 plans — the best and the cheapest and the most interesting.
Vodafone wants you to buy a Galaxy Note8 from it, real bad. And to do that, it's got the cheapest pricing we've seen so far for the brand new handset.
Heard about the new Samsung Galaxy Note8? Just wanna know when you can buy one and when you can get a hold of it? Here's everything you need to know.
Every man and his dog is launching NBN plans, but there's very little difference between one and the next. But the nation's existing telcos have a trick up their collective sleeves.
Vodafone is coming late to the NBN party behind Telstra and Optus, but it has a reason for taking its time. Vodafone is using its nationwide 4G network and a brand new Wi-Fi Hub modem that includes a 4G SIM for constant connectivity for every customer from the second they plug it in — even if the NBN isn't switched on yet.
Got a phone but need a plan? You're in good company. According to Telsyte, two-thirds of Aussies who switched phone plans last year moved to no contract plans, and you can be sure when they run these numbers again, the proportion of SIM Only plan purchases will increase again.
In short, it's time to find the best SIM Only plan. Here are the best options for five different types of user.
The Telecommunications Universal Service Obligation was set up to ensure that all Australians have access to a landline. The Federal Government's Productivity Commission just a released a report calling the $3 billion over 20 years initiative "anachronistic and costly", recommending it should end by 2020.
The report points to the "sizable public investment" in NBN infrastructure that will provide high-speed (voice-capable) broadband "to all premises (on request) across Australia by 2020 at a quality that is, for the most part, superior to what has been available" as one of the reasons for ending the program.
Vodafone says Australian mobile phone users "will continue to pay too much and suffer poor coverage in regional areas" as a result of the ACCC's recent decision to restrict competitor networks from using Telstra's infrastructure to provide domestic roaming services.
Vodafone is taking legal action: asking the Federal Court to review the ACCC's inquiry process "on behalf of all Australian mobile customers".
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has ruled against a wholesale domestic mobile roaming service - which would allow rival telcos to roam using Telstra's network - stating there was "insufficient evidence" a declaration on the service would improve the current state of competition.
It is a move both Vodafone and Pivotel have called a "missed opportunity" for regional Australians who are currently solely reliant on Telstra for their telecommunications needs.
The reviews are in and everyone seems to agree that the new Galaxy S8 is the world’s best phone ever. (Take that, Nokia!) With that decided, we now turn our attention to the question that our worried spouses and accountants are asking: What’s the best way to buy the S8? Outright or on a contract plan?
