Telecom is to cut its data roaming prices for those travelling overseas.
From Friday next week, Telecom will introduce a flat daily rate for people and firms on its smartphone plans, a change from its practice of charging on a usage basis.
Australia will start at $6 per day until the end of June, when Telecom will review the rate.
Users will pay $10 per day for data in Britain, the United States, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, and Saudi Arabia.
The company says data roaming charges will be slashed by about 83% - 92% in other markets, although charges will continue to be on a usage basis.
