Vodafone ups mobile broadband data caps

The sole prepaid plan, the Data Plus Starter pack, is now $99, down from $129

Vodafone today increased the data quota and cut excess fees (on capped plans) on its mobile broadband plans, with four new postpaid and one new prepaid options.

"We've listened to our customers," said Edward Goff, general manager of Voice and Mobile Broadband at Vodafone Hutchison Australia. "They’ve told us they want more generous data allowances; they want the freedom and flexibility to choose the exact duration of their contracts; and the want fairer pricing when they have an internet- and data-intensive month and need to go over and above their usual data allowance."

The sole prepaid plan, the Data Plus Starter pack, is now $99, down from $129. The starter pack includes 6GB of data, a 3 month expiry, a USB modem and a maximum of 14GB of data accumulation.

The four new postpaid plans are: $15 per month for 1.5GB (a 500MB increase from the previous plan), $29 per month for 4GB (a 1GB increase), $39 per month for 8GB (a 2GB increase) and finally the $49 per month plan for 10GB (a 2GB increase).

All postpaid plans have a minimum monthly spend of their namesake, for example the $15 plan has a minimum spend of $15. Early exit fees apply on the 12 month contract plans. For the $15 plan the exit fee is $15 x months left on contract and $20 x months left of contract for the $29, $39 and $49 plans. Monthly data fees on the postpaid plans have been cut from $0.10 per MB to $0.02MB.

A USB modem is included in the $29, $39 and $49 12 month contract plans for no extra charge. The modem is $4 a month on the cheapest postpaid 12 month contract plan or there is an option to buy the modem outright. The USB modem is $79 to buy outright for conumers who do not want to sign a 12 month contract and use on a month to month basis. An unlocking fee applies to all plans.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
