Existing prepaid customers can now access 4G, new customers from mid-November

Vodafone has announced it will allow existing prepaid customers to access its 4G network from today, before opening up the network to new prepaid customers from mid-November.

The telco announced the changes to its higher speed 4G network today. It previously only allowed postpaid customers to access the faster 4G network.

Current Vodafone pre-paid customers can access the telco's 4G network from today, though any new customers will have to wait until mid-November.

Vodafone Australia's Chief Marketing Officer, Kim Clarke, said the decision to move existing customers first is a "reward".

"We’re rewarding our existing prepaid customers by transitioning them to our superfast wide-band 4G network first. Some have been with Vodafone for many years and we want to ensure their move is a smooth one."

"We also look forward to welcoming new prepaid customers to Vodafone’s superfast 4G network next month."

Vodafone has advised that existing prepaid customers who already have a 4G smartphone may need to change the settings on their phone to enable 4G access.

As part of the prepaid 4G launch, Vodafone has also increased the data limit on its $40 prepaid plan from 750MB to 1GB, and included $750 worth of call credit value, up from $650.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
