Plan comparison checklist

A little research and comparison can go a long way. Before you connect or make a switch, take in the following:

  • tariffs – what pricing scale is used for the particular plan?
  • discounts and offers – do you get a guaranteed discount or discount for paying your bills by the due date?
  • type of contract – is the plan on a standard or market retail contract ?
  • service options – do you receive a bi-monthly, monthly or quarterly bill? Is full payment required or can you opt for a payment plan?
  • fees and charges – are there connection/disconnection fees, late payment fees, concessions or early exit fees?
  • terms and conditions – how long is the benefit term? Are there any special conditions?
  • add-ons – are there green energy and solar power options on your plan?
  • features and benefits – what are the top three benefits of your chosen plan?
