How to use Cox Internet for free, then buy the data plan with your data?
- by admin
The Australian Financial Regulator (AFR) has ruled that you can pay for your internet service by using your credit card or credit card and internet data plan, rather than using your mobile phone.
Cox internet plans have become a popular choice for consumers who want to enjoy free internet service and get access to the latest streaming TV shows and movies, as well as to access the latest news and information on the internet.
The AFR ruled that it was legal for people to pay for internet services using their credit card by using their internet data plans, rather that using their mobile phone, because of the ease of paying for the internet services online.
However, it also found that internet service providers (ISPs) who sell prepaid mobile plans are not covered by the law, and it noted that these are still a significant source of competition for ISPs, who are often competing with each other for customer data.
It said it would make its decision on whether to apply the new law on internet service provider data plans available on July 1.
“While the use of a prepaid mobile phone plan to pay a broadband subscription is not prohibited under the Telecommunications Act 2001, the use and sale of prepaid mobile phones for payment of broadband subscription fees is not permitted,” the AFR said in its decision.
“In its view, prepaid mobile data plans are generally not considered to be payment for services, and the use or sale of such plans is not covered under the law.”
The Telecommunications Act applies to all internet service businesses, and includes provisions that allow ISPs to sell internet access plans, which offer access to services without a monthly fee.
Under the Telecommunications (Consumer Price Negotiations) Act, ISPs can sell plans to consumers for the price of the plans’ monthly subscription fees, and pay for the data service through a fixed-rate mobile data plan.
This is known as a variable-rate plan.
If the user’s monthly data bill for a plan is less than the fixed-rates price, the ISP can use the difference to pay the difference.
In some cases, the fixed monthly fees are not fixed, and may vary depending on the price, but the user pays them.
The Telecommunications Commission (TCC) was also criticised for not issuing guidance for internet service subscribers to understand what constitutes an internet service subscription.
As part of its review of the Telecommunications Rules, the TCC recommended that it include a section that would clarify what internet service plans are and what they can and cannot do.
A number of organisations and consumers criticised the TAC for not doing this.
Internet service providers including iiNet and Optus also said they would not be affected by the AFF ruling.
Optus chief executive John Williams said the regulator should have included guidance on internet data limits in its guidelines.
“If we don’t have that information, it’s not really clear how much the ATO can use that information to stop a plan,” he said.
While iiNet said it was not affected by AFR’s decision, it was concerned by the fact that it is still a major ISP, and that it could not be able to compete in the new market.
“It’s quite difficult to compete on a fixed price basis with a fixed monthly price because of all the different factors that come into play,” iiNet chief operating officer Mark Dickson said.
“There is a risk that they may not be profitable, and you can only compete on price with fixed price plans.” iiNet’s price of a fixed data plan was $80 per month, with a 1 per cent monthly fee for the use, but its price of an unlimited data plan is $120 per month.
What is a fixed cost plan?
The TAC has said it has set up a national taskforce to investigate the future of fixed cost plans.
For example, it is looking at how the industry can increase competition and provide customers with choice when it comes to data pricing.
But the regulator has also said it will continue to examine the current industry and ensure consumers have the best value for money.
One of the main issues in the industry is that fixed cost customers have a high upfront cost, and have to pay an additional charge for data over the next three years.
If the ATB decides to review fixed cost prices, it could also look at whether some of the ISPs could be exempted from the changes.
