2degrees gets Kiwis talking with new ‘Share Everything’ Plan

2degrees to get Kiwis talking with new ‘Share Everything’ Plans

When it comes to talking at length on mobile phones, New Zealanders are trailing behind most nations. Americans, by comparison, use their mobile devices nearly five times as much as Kiwis, but the fear of sky-rocketing mobile phone bills still stands in the way of Kiwis following this worldwide trend.

In a further step to get Kiwis talking more, 2degrees has launched a new range of ‘Share Everything’ plans, at a price point never been seen before, that is set to shake up the mobile market in New Zealand.

The new ‘Share Everything’ plans start at $69 for unlimited calls and texts to NZ and Australia, plus loads of NZ Carryover Data – then share it all with up to threeother 2degrees mobile customers for just $20 a month each.

2degrees Chief Marketing Officer, Malcolm Phillipps, says the new ‘Share Everything’ plans offer another great deal for customers in a bid to liberate Kiwis when it comes to talking and using their mobiles more.

“Based on sharing, these innovative plans empower families, groups of friends and businesses to use their mobiles the way they have always wanted to without the fear of bill shock and unexpected costs. The more you share with people, the more value you get, “says Mr Phillipps.

Starting from just $69 per month, all 2degrees’ new Share Everything plans come with a pool of unlimited calls and texts to NZ and Australia, plus loads of carryover data that can be shared. Customers simply choose a plan that best suits them based on how much data they need, and then decide if they want to share their plan with other people.

To launch the ‘Share Everything’ plans, 2degrees has teamed up with the world’s fastest talking female, Fran Capo who holds six Guinness World Records, to encourage kiwis to get talking. Fran will be available to media on Tuesday10th/Wednesday 11th December.
