i’m gunna be that guy –

any deals in the pipeline for existing customers? ;)

 

v4moose,

you beat me t0 being that guy ! I want $100 for my continued service to the glorious node.

 

I remember when I had Austar, there were always great deals for new members but absolutely zip for existing customers, once they’ve got you they forget about you.

 

any chance you’ll start barking at Hellstra for those of us stuck on Reach plans so we can actually get a half decent speed out of the crap copper lines that they won’t replace ? – guess not :(

 

As an existing customer it would be nice to get this… BUT I’ve had the better advantage of being on internode for around 10 years. Can’t get a better win than that.

Being on internode AND getting awesome things … Well I guess we did get a node pony from Simon Hackett awhile back …

Customer of more than a decade reporting in… I didn’t get no nodepony.

 

2 year plan lock-in when there’s a chance the NBN could roll through their area in that time? -_-

 

Great, another node promo I will miss out on for the crime of already being a node customer. Thanks Node. Heard of loyalty rewards? :(

Did you ask the all mighty Lord Hackett for a node pony ? Helps if you call him the All mighty Lord Hackett … that seemed to appease the pony god.

Surely it would just be a 2 year lock in to node… They have always been very liberal about changing the specific plan.

 

rapid101,

as spooler said, im sure they would be willing to allow you to upgrade.

otherwise, heh, nbn in two years, dreamin’ buddy
*cries* i wasn’t even on the labour 3 year roll-out map

 

Yeah as someone who’s been with node since 2001 [iirc] it’d be nice if there was some sort of loyalty bonus programme.

I mean I’d be up for a 1% discount for every year I’ve been with node, let it kick in once you’ve been with them for 5 years or something. [and give it a % cap so profitability isn't hit too hard].

And I’ve not even been using cheap plans either, they’ve made solid money out of me.

 

500GB for < $60? Nope

Speed up the copper wiring from my house to the exchange? Nope

Ah well, not really worth it then….

 

You want a “loyalty bonus programme”? Let’s see, we have game servers, free quota downloads of various kinds, etc. As an Internode customer I think I’m getting my loyalty bonuses aplenty. Besides their one of the most reliable and helpful ISPs I’ve ever had and that’s a bonus I’m really happy with :D

 

I’m not too worried about a loyalty bonus, even though I have been with Internode for ages and I always tell anyone interested in a new provider about them. And I’m still amazed that Internodes tech support people don’t read from a script.
What I would love is not to be screwed over again simply because I am forced to have Reach 60. I missed out last time they increased quota for 60GB customers because it was everyone but Reach customers. But then I was told “Well, Reach customers got an increase recently” and when I told them I was on Reach 60 and we didn’t get an increase, I was told “Well we are giving our Reach 60 customers the best deal we can at the moment”
Not very believable when you can increase the plan both above and below by about a third.

 

I’ve seen this question asked in every service industry I’ve ever worked in. Apologies if I’m being dramatic but I’ve handled this query for many, many customers so I’m giving you the factual bits without any of the emotional couching.

Deals like this are offered at or close to a loss to entice new business. That extra business helps the company grow so that it can continue to provide and improve upon services being offered. It is not economically possible to pass that deal on to existing customers, that would be ruinously expensive.

Just about every medium to large business with a sizeable personal customer base does it, at the same cost/loss for the same reasons. Acting hurt and/or unreasonable about your expectations in this thread is not the right place nor does it help Tim who has a great opportunity here to grow awareness and appreciation of the GoN brand with its parent company as well as help some of our readers get a better deal and keep GoN running.

I’m with Internode already but yes, sorta, hell yes. Options?

Oh they bark, but as telstra are living up to there SLA, they are not inclined to spend money and loose a revenue stream.

And to those wanting rewards for existing customers, what Mellie and ZRoc said.

 

Yep its slow and its internode.

 

If your internet is slow you are too far from the exchange, don’t blame internode.
