This just in...


Vodafone customers know the Internet has gone mobile and with its great plans, Vodafone is connecting customers to the Internet from their mobiles from almost anywhere in the country.

With Vodafone’s 3G coverage now available in 97% of the places New Zealander’s live, work and play, it’s easy to browse your favourite websites on your mobile - and so many kiwis are already doing so.

In June, Vodafone saw 665,084 unique users access the Internet by mobile and now, for the next three months, new Vodafone customers can dive in and surf the net from their mobiles for free.

Customers who sign up to selected Vodafone On Account plans or a new Vodafone Prepay connection between 13 July and 12 October 2009 will receive free Broadband Lite (100MB per month) for their first three months.

And… if you’re a Prepay customer who moves to one of our selected On Account plans, you’ll also qualify for free Broadband Lite for three months. Re-signing On Account customers on our selected plans are eligible to receive the offer as well.

Vodafone’s GM of Consumer Marketing, Dave Gutteridge says “Last year Vodafone made it even easier to access the Internet on your mobile by reducing the cost of casual data by as much as 95% and we’re not done yet. Vodafone customers get the best of mobile Internet services and handsets like the fantastic Nokia N97 and the Nokia 3120c. With this offer, customers can dive on in and start using the Internet with them when they’re mobile.”

Additional data is charged to On Account customers at 10c per MB or for Prepay customers it’s $1 a day for up to 10MB on the day that they use it. The offer runs from 13 July to 12 October 2009. For more information, visit www.vodafone.co.nz/freemobileinternet

Annoys the buggery out of me that they don't offer any of these little nuggets for people currently on a plan...not even as a means to say thanks.

If you are on an iPhone plan you have 3GB per month for the next three months.

That I know.

Unfortunately (or fortunately - depending on your point of view) I am not on an iPhone plan, nor am I likely to be any time soon.

I think that Vodafone are testing us iPhone users with the 3GB plan to know what to really set the data caps at when the three months end.

Or they simply want you to get used to using more, so you will end up paying to get more later on ;)


Either way, its possible.
