Chances are that VF bought a block of advertising and they have paid for it already, so they will continue to let it run. It's not that big of a problem anyway, since plans will be upgraded I'm guessing, so signing a 60GB plan will result in you getting a bigger data allocation if that's what they decide to do.

Wills1: I'm amazed that Vodafone continue to throw money at advertising what is such a poor value product. Saw an ad on tv last night for the 60gb naked plan. I've also heard many ads on the radio. I'm assuming these ads were committed to some time ago. But still its terrible value.


ummm, it's arguably the best value plan in the market for low/medium users if you have voda postpaid already.

It is a problem, as I would not sign up in the hope they will up data allocation, I would just go to a someone else who already has.




I aim to misbehave.

Not really.

You can get unlimited data from slingshot for $60 Shaped of course

$100 from Snap buys you 260gb.

I'd say Vodafone is poor value. You don't need to have a post paid mobile for either of the above options either.

Poor value for heavy users maybe, but you forget that for the average (=most ISP customers) person or family 60GB is more than they'll use.

loganjames:But since your here johnr any word on data caps?

Have you read any of this thread?


I think he means everyone on here wants to know sooner than originally planned. There seems to be quite a lot of demand to know the plans sooner than "by June 30th"! *Hint*

VF will release the plans when they are ready. No-one will tell you anything before that as they are covered by NDA and could potentially lose their jobs. It's been said before, probably will need to be said every day until, but people need to be patient. :)

unlimited for $60 PLUS the cost of a phone line -so not a fair comparison.
$65 at vodafone is without a phone line (naked) so no extra cost and therefore cheaper -if you dont use one (a phone that is)
it is $90 at slingshot for unlimited without phone line (naked)
and $95.60 for 120gb at vodafone.
which is a better deal for high usage.

Actually it's $65 at Vodafone WITH an on account mobile plan otherwise it's $95 without.

YES you are right. i don't have any use for a home line only high use internet and my mobile so good value depends on your usage and needs. slingshot $90 unlimited seems to be best/cheapest for me but i will wait till vodafone unveils their data changes this month before i take the leap.
