Vodafone Base plans under scrutiny

More questions asked about cheap You Choose plan

Vodafone  denies suggestions it won't pay commission to retail staff who sell one of its cheapest phone plans but its protestations are at odds with a leaked company document.

It is understood the mobile giant is again trying to get the Commerce Commission to recognise its You Choose Base plan as genuine.

The commission said in May it would continue to exclude the plan from its benchmarks after finding out the telco wasn't actually selling it in stores.
