[LINK] Telecom is reducing monthly telephone line rentals for the first time in a decade
Thu, 18 Jan 2001 21:52:03 +1100
Meanwhile, across the pond...
Extract: "The 18 per cent drop in the monthly line rental to $29.95 from
$36.65 applies in Wellington and Christchurch and affects more than 500,000
of Telecom's 2.1 million customers.
The move is designed to squeeze Australian rival Telstra Saturn, which is
installing a state-of-the-art network in Christchurch and preparing to go
live with part of it in about a month."
AFAIK, residential subscribers get free local calls for that figure.
