The 3GB will no longer be offered, and current users have another six months, according to the NBR.

I can imagine pretty soon people will start complaining about the cost of mobile data...

Wow, some harsh comments on the NBR link above. I wonder if that upsets anyone at big red?

To be fair Vodafone always said it was temporary. Most of those comments sound like "hey I'm a freeloader and I'll diss the company who gave me such a huge bonus for so long"...

Still, if customers were talking about my business like that I would be gutted. Maybe the "things around the corner" should have been announced at the same time?

Does the current offer expire straight away?, the NBR article suggested it will last for another 6 months for some people on the plan.....any more details about who qualifies for that?

You'd expect more than a hug after 2 years wouldn't you? It's more likely to be extra purchasable data bundles...

Thats great, thanks for clearing it up.  6 months is a lot better than the 30 days notice Vodafone said they would give.  6 months is a long time in the mobile world, things could and hopefullly will be different by then, I dont know if I could manage with only 250mb.
