From today until Jan 31st 2013, 2degrees prepay customers can get even larger amounts of minutes, texts or data, in their specially tailored $19 Combo packs.

Text Combo - $19 - 50mins talk, 5000 texts, 500MB data
Data Combo - $19 - 30mins talk, 300 texts, 600MB data
Chat Combo - $19 - 100mins talk, 300 texts, 50MB data

2degrees CEO Eric Hertz says: “Since our launch three years ago, we have been focused on providing New Zealanders with innovative products that suit their lifestyles and budget. We are excited to offer this special range of $19 Combo packs, which offer the best prepay value in the market.”

Mr Hertz says the company is focused on continuing to lead the market.
