Vodafone has blown apart the mobile data market with the launch of its new casual rate of $1 a day

.

From July 28, customers will be able to surf the net, download music and games and play on their favourite sites without committing to a fixed monthly data contract.

The $1 a day casual rate gives customers up to 10MB of data - more than enough for most casual users on their mobile devices. Customers who go over that limit will be charged at $1 per megabyte and users who regularly need more can take advantage of our suite of data plans.

Vodafone's GM of Products and Services, Kursten Shalfoon, says the new casual rate will change the way customers use the internet on their mobile devices.

"Over the past year we've increased network capacity, the handsets are evolving rapidly and now we're able to bring mobile internet alive with sharper prices."

To make sure customers can take advantage of the new rate, Vodafone's network is optimising websites for viewing on customers' mobiles - a first for New Zealand.

"There's nothing to install at the customer's end, and it works with all our WAP-enabled mobiles. It means customers don't spend ages downloading a page they can't read on their mobile device. Instead they'll get a page that's optimised for their own personal device making the experience that much better for all concerned."

The new pricing is simple and affordable, and now applies to almost all internet data, including the Vodafone Live! portal. Sky Mobile TV and Vodafone Compass will continue to be free of data usage costs.

"We have great content deals, and Vodafone Live will still bring the best of the internet to Vodafone customers, but it means the customers can decide what they'll want to look at and what they want to get involved with."
