It's the end of the year as we know it, but how do you tell the rest of the world when you fear your telco will struggle at midnight?
One of the more frustrating things when you're using an Australian telco is knowing that the moment you head overseas, there's a strong likelihood you'll be charged heavily for the privilege of using your phone overseas. Except on Vodafone, where the roaming solution is at least, you know, a little fairer.
Mobile may well be taking over in terms of how we check our email, connect on Facebook, and check out crazy cat videos (meow), but fixed line is still a big deal, and Voda wants to be there.
As your eyes shift to your phone for apps, social, and the web, you may not be watching as much TV. If you can relate, you may well be replacing prime-time television with downtime on your phone, and if you use Telstra, that may turn into some free ways to watch.
Pickr isn't the only comparison engine in Australia, because while we're about fair comparisons between phones, there are other systems for phone plans. One such system even has Aussies mobile networks rated.
