Mobile operator Vodafone UK has cut the price of their 4G and 5G focused SIM-Only “unlimited data” (mobile broadband) plans in half, albeit only when you take one of them on a lengthy 24 month contract term. The catch is that this discount only lasts for the first 6 months of service.

The change means that their Unlimited Lite (2Mbps speed cap), Unlimited (10Mbps speed cap) and Unlimited Max (fastest speed possible) plans are now priced from £11, £13 and £15 for the first 6 months of service respectively (£22, £26 and £30 respectively thereafter).

All three plans come with unlimited calls and texts, 48 roam-free destinations (77 on Max), a 3 month free trial of Secure Net and the ability to save another £3 per month if you bundle one of them with one of Vodafone’s home broadband packages. But the half price offer will only be available to order until 1st April 2020.

    I’m just about to leave Vodafone as their network has slowed to unusable speeds on LTE.

    They need to concentrate on deploying LTE+ because just basic LTE on band 20 with just 10MHZ bandwidth is not enough!

      I agree with you.

      Oddly, in my area, O2 has been the fastest network recently.

      Totally agree, In my local area Vodafone ran at less than 2mbps which makes streaming and using social media very hard. Ended up switching to 3 and it works much better.

    So in reality not half price at all. Half of one quarter of the total plan which looks more like one eighth if my maths hasn’t completely failed me!

    That’s a terrible deal! SIM Only were created for people to bring their own devices letting them get a slightly cheaper plan and only 30 day contracts. These have gone from 30 days to 12 month, to 18 month and now 24! And £30 a month for the rest of the 18 month. Nearly every other network is doing unlimited data now for around £20 a month with a shorter contract. That’s not a deal, it’s a trap to lure people in.

      “That’s a terrible deal!”

      Rubbish – it works out £26.25 per month, which is pretty good.

      “SIM Only were created for people to bring their own devices letting them get a slightly cheaper plan and only 30 day contracts. These have gone from 30 days to 12 month, to 18 month and now 24!”

      SIM only plans were not devised specifically to give people 30 day plans. In any case, you can get 30 day unlimited data plans from Vodafone (I just checked). Obviously you pay more, because you get a discount for commitment, as is standard in the business.

      “Nearly every other network is doing unlimited data now for around £20 a month with a shorter contract. That’s not a deal, it’s a trap to lure people in.”

      Three is the cheapest for unlimited data and their web site prices as of this moment are:

      30 days: £26
      12 months: £24
      24 months: £22 (£11 for 6 months)

      If you disagree with any of my points, please present facts and quit yer whining.

      Three unlimited SIM 12 month contract can be had even cheaper, £18/m if you use cashback site deals e.g. https://www.topcashback.co.uk/3-mobile/

      I think 3 are best avoided for a while. The amount of negative reviews and horror stories all speak for themselves.

    Good news! Since they started offering unlimited plans, my average speed on 4G in Vodafine has dropped from about 40Mbit to about 15Mbit.

  5. Avatar photo Declan M says:

    Why even offer a plan with 2mb max speed, no use to man nor beast.

    1. Avatar photo Tim says:

      Because they have read up on how to market products to push customers onto higher plans.

      The lower tiers are not intended to be of interest to anyone. Yet means they can advertise a low starting price which attracts attention.

      I bet over 90% take the unlimited max plan.

      I still don’t agree that it’s useless. I could certainly make do; I seldom stream from youtube, but if I’m driving I’ll probably have sat nav running & streaming music/radio from Spotify or iPlayer. I’ll use less than 2mbit, but will be doing so for 4+ hours.

      I could well imagine a long distance driver making good use of it! Or, equally, if you live somewhere with feeble slow 4G and want an unlimited deal anyway & you decide to save a few quid.

      Yes, yes, it’s contrived I know and possibly still very frustrating if you do start scrolling rapidly down a media-rich page, but it’s not without its uses.
