iPrimus Marketing and Product General Manager Andrew Sims this afternoon dismissed Telstra’s newly announced Broadband plans noting that they are still well behind the average industry plan.
"Online gaming and video usage in Australia has been significant for several years so for Telstra to only just realise this and update their plans accordingly, shows their lack of understanding and commitment to their customers. Yet their best offers announced today still comes nowhere near matching plans offered by the rest of the industry.
"For example, for the same price and at the same speed, the iPrimus Starter Plus ADSL2+ plan offers five times more data allowance than the Telstra plan. I struggle to understand how they can justify the price differential to their customers,” said Mr Sims
