From December 10, Vodafone will make available a new optional data add-on for customers on iPhone or Smart plans. Customers seeking more data than that included in their existing bundles, can purchase an extra 1GB for $49.95 per month which can be added and removed as users require.
Customers on iPhone and Smart plans already enjoy either 250MB, 500MB or 1GB of data – depending on what plan they’ve taken. The extra 1GB gives customers the ability to add-on more data, allowing them to take full advantage of tethering. In the event that this 1GB of data is used up another 1GB is automatically triggered for only a $10 additional charge.
Along with this optional data add-on, customers on iPhone and Smart plans will receive 100 PXTs each month, for free. This will be added to customers accounts automatically.
This refresh replaces Vodafone’s recent promotion that began in July and which will finish on December 9, 2009.
I just me or are our mobile operators still charging like a bull when it comes to data options? I would expect by now to have unlimited* data for $49.95...
(* And by "unlimited" I don't mean the joke Vodafone UK calls 500MB).
