Vodafone UK Bring 4G Network and More Data to Pay-As-You-Go Users

Friday, August 29th, 2014 (1:33 pm) - Score 1,598

More news from mobile operators today after Vodafone announced that their new 4G based Mobile Broadband network, which since this time last year has been expanded to cover over 300 cities and towns as well as “thousands of smaller communities” across the United Kingdom, was also being made available to their Pay-As-You-Go (PAYG) customers.

In addition, customers who take one of Vodafone’s new 4G powered and bizarrely titled Red Freedom Freebees (PAYG plans) will also benefit from a data boost, with those who spend from £20 receiving 500 minutes of UK calls, unlimited texts, 2GB (GigaBytes) of data and 200 Rewardz Pointz because apparently it’s no longer possible to spell either “reward” or “points” without using a letter z to seem trendy.

On top of that two of the most expensive packages also come with Spotify Premium or Sky Sports Mobile TV content. One small downside is that these allowances will only last for 30 days before they expire and you have to buy them again.

Cindy Rose, Vodafone’s Consumer Director, said:

Over the past year we’ve already signed up well over a million Pay monthly customers to our 4G service and are now opening up this great opportunity to our Pay as you go customers. We’re also offering the best value 4G smartphone available today and with great value Freedom Freebees to go with it, now is the time to take 4G to Pay as you go.

We’ve always said that 4G speeds were just the start – it’s what you did with 4G that mattered – so we’re delighted to be able to offer a choice of Spotify or Sky Sports Mobile TV for customers taking £30 and £40 Red Freedom Freebees.”

Vodafone also said that 4G will be available to PAYG Mobile Broadband customers, with prices starting from £15 for 2GB data.

    vodafone still a huge ripoff

  3. Avatar dave says:

    having the allowances expire sounds more like a 1 month contract rather than payg.

  4. Avatar gerarda says:

    As Vodafones 4G coverage goes up their 3G and 2G coverage seems to decline.

    1. To be expected really, as it is a way of “migrating” customers onto more expensive tariffs.

      Would not surprise me if we see the fixed operators start to do something like this with adsl versus FTTC as some stage.

    2. Avatar gerarda says:

      Why would a customer who cant get 2g or 3G migrate? They might migrate to another operator but not to one that doesnt give coverage

  5. Avatar Owl. says:

    Vodafone seem to be the most expensive mobile operator..£40 a month for 6GB data,good luck with that one.

    After Three committed tethercide I’m not sure I’ll continue paying huge amounts each month if they ever take away my AYCE tethering.
