Hi all,

The team is very pleased to announce the following DSL8 plans.

------------------------

8000/1G___ 1GB___ 1x___ $59.90
8000/28G__ 14GB__ 2x___ $69.90
8000/52G__ 26GB__ 2x___ $79.90
8000/96G__ 48GB__ 2x___ $99.90
8000/144G__ 48GB__3x___ $109.90


(excess on the above plans is $4/gb)

From 1am to 8am each day is the off-peak period. During the off-peak period your quota of included data is much more valuable, allowing you to download either 2x or 3x the amount you could download during the peak period. For example on a 3x plan, for each 1GB of quota, you can download 3GB of data during off-peak.

------------------------

These plans will be available for ordering later this week on the aaNet Web site and Members areas.

Regards,
The aaNet Team

Again, it's strange that jump from 1GB to 14GB... If I hadn't gotten onto the trial I would have been looking for something in the 5GB range.

Plan names are a bit odd too... I can see confusion happening there :?

Just thinkof it as a 5GB plan with some free data chucked in. :)

We may change them. The idea was to express the theoretical max one could download using these plans.

The 8000/1G plan seems a bit pointless...

If anyone used it so little, they might as well go with a 1500plan and save $10...

I'd like to see a 5G plan too...

No.
5 GB for $60.

It leaves the 1GB for $59.90 out of the game.(Cancelled)
Or reduced to $55 ($54.90)

I agree. The pain limit is between $50 and $60 (closer to 50), and there is a need for a quota in the 5Gb to 8Gb range.

The current 8Mbit proposal is starting to get close to ADSL2 plans that can offer even better upload speeds. So thanks for the offer John, but it is obviously meant for a different type of customer than some of us. Can't please everybody all of the time :D

Sure, but the wholesale cost of the port is $52 ex GST ~ $57.20 incl. GST. A 5GB plan would retail for $69.90. :)

Hopefully the big T will reduce the wholesale port price and we're all in business.

That calculator of yours is really confuses me...

14 GB - 1 GB =13 GB. 69.90-59.10=10
10 / 13= 1 GB=$0.77

26 GB - 14 GB=12 GB 79.90-69.90=10
10 / 12 = 1 GB=$0.83

48 GB- 26 GB =22GB 99.90-79.90=20
20/22=1 GB=$0.91

69.90 for 14GB and 69.90 for 5 GB.

As I said in the other thread, I think there is a psychological effect of having the intermediate value around 5GB in there, even if it is only $2 or $3 cheaper than the 14GB... people may not feel they are "wasting" as much

I am inclined to agree. My immediate reaction on seeing the proposed plans was that there was nothing suitable for me. First impressions count.
If a 1GB plan can be sold at $60, couldn't a 5GB plan be sold at around $65?

8000/TR1 5GB (excess $10/gb) for $39.90/month
8000/TR2 20G (excess $2/gb) for $49.90/month

Both plans include an off-peak period between the hours of 1am - 8am.
...




So for at least the next six months you will be making a loss on those 100 or so people. I don't believe this...

it's called a trial. it's where the trial members forfeit some of their time relaying information back to aaNet in regards to the new connection and difficulties/usage patterns/effects on gaming etc. they can use the data (from a statistically valid sample size) to extrapolate to what the customers future needs would be.
it helps aaNet plan better for the future.

in exchange for these trail members time they get a cheaper, below cost service.
