Vodafone launches prepaid mobile broadband

Vodafone Australia has announced the launch of a prepaid mobile broadband service, following the lead of rival carriers Telstra, Optus and 3 Mobile.

The Vodafone prepaid service will be sold as a $149 starter pack, which includes a slimline Internet stick, a mobile broadband–enabled SIM card and 500MB of data.

Vodafone's prepaid service can be recharged in the same manner you recharge a prepaid mobile phone service. A number of recharge plans are available, including $19 for 500MB of data, $29 for 1GB and $49 for 3GB.

Customers who recharge within 30 days can have up to 5GB of their unused data rolled over into the next month.

"Vodafone’s Prepaid Mobile Broadband service is stress-free connectivity", said Helen Tuffy of Vodafone Australia. "Users will have complete control over how much money they spend with the benefits of plug-and-play mobile Internet."

Vodafone prepaid customers can recharge their mobile broadband accounts with a credit card online at www.vodafone.com.au or at any Vodafone retail store.

Vodafone is offering customers who connect before June 30 a bonus 2GB data allowance (rather than the standard 500MB) when they purchase the starter pack.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
