Telstra/Bigpond Releases New Mobile Broadband Plans

New Telstra/Bigpond Mobile PlansToday Telstra launched a new set of plans that were expected to be for wireless connections. However instead of releasing a set of ‘wireless’ plans they have chosen to rename them to ‘Mobile Broadband’ in place of ‘Wireless Broadband’. I can only assume this has been done to distinguish what is a fixed connection and what is a mobile connection, which is actually a great idea.

However what they have not done is realise that many that used a wireless connection prior to these new plans, were using them as a home connection and not for mobile purposes. This now leaves those people with a gap of no plans that now suit them. These people are not able to get a fixed line connection but they do want a fixed home connection and not a mobile connection, so Mobile Broadband is also not suitable for them. So what will Telstra do now for that group of users? I fear nothing as they refuse to consider that many users of the previous wireless broadband used it for a home connection and not for mobile purposes.
