Vodafone doubles down on data with leading offers

Sign-up by 2 June to receive up to 20GB of data every month for two years

Vodafone today announced its ‘double data’ offer is back by popular demand. Available online and in store, Vodafone is offering double the usual data allowance for use in Australia on a range of month-to-month, 12 and 24 month Red plans for consumers and business for up to 24 months.

As part of Vodafone’s double down on data, the company is also offering an additional bonus 1GB of data per month for up to 24 months to customers who connect online to a personal Red plan.

Vodafone’s Director of Sales, Ben McIntosh, said the company’s double data offer is timely.

“As streaming mobile entertainment becomes increasingly popular, and more of us take advantage of fast 4G speeds, Vodafone is upping the ante and giving Australians a better data deal when they need it most,” Mr McIntosh said.

“Only on Vodafone can you receive double the data for the same price, while also enjoying our most premium experiences, including access to $5 Roaming, Data Workout and the choice of a subscription to Stan, Spotify Premium or The Age/Sydney Morning Herald online.”

Vodafone Red plans boast more award-winning features than any other smartphone contract plan in Australia. On top of unequalled inclusions, including infinite standard national calls, infinite standard TXT, and generous data allowance, Red plans offer other bonus perks including:

  • 300 international minutes every month to call family and friends.
  • Roaming to 47 countries for only $5 extra a day, so you can take your phone overseas with you.
  • A choice of an entertainment subscription to Stan, Spotify Premium or The Age/SMH (check plan details for length of subscription period).
  • Data Workout, to help customers get better acquainted with their new smartphone by offering unlimited data when in Australia for the first two months of any 24-month contract.

Vodafone recently won two Canstar Blue Innovation Excellence Awards in recognition of its efforts to help customers find how much data they need with Data Workout, and to make roaming more affordable and simpler with $5 Roaming.
