NZ iPhone 5 contract plans compared

You can buy a 16GB iPhone 5 from Apple and other outlets for $1049. That’s a lot of money up-front for many people, so many New Zealanders choose to get smartphones on a carrier plan. Here I’ve compared all the options from Telecom and Vodafone in one easy to read table.

The contract plan table is an embedded Excel spreadsheet, so you should be able to sort and filter the data to get the information you need.

Please note, Telecom has a fair use policy for the places on the chart where I’ve written “unmetered”. This means Telecom reserves its rights if you abuse the unlimited amounts.
