Yeah the only way all those 'wealthy boaties,' company directors, professionals (etc including small business owners like me ) with Spark plans they pay for year in year out on multiple devices and landlines and internet connections , can get coverage at Barrier on the annual holiday is to borrow a kids vodafone phone.
Really clever bit of demographic profiling there Spark. You saved some money by giving it up to Vodafone , and you pissed off the people who pay the bills.
Same happened in the Pacific actually, guys like me on Spark had offers of twenty buck per week roaming in Tonga and fiji. Took it up after getting the ' welcome to Tonga/ Fiji' text and it only worked a third of the time.
Vodafone 5 buck roaming worked most of the time.
Note to self : don't take Spark to Barrier , don't take Spark to Fiji. Waste of time.
