Vodafone data: Now the equivalent of One2One GRPS

Whatever happened to Vodafone? Once the shining beacon of technical capability, Vodafone’s data connection appears to have regressed in performance to the point where it’s virtually indistinguishable from One2One at the height of it’s popularity.

Mobile by Sainsbury’s: What are they smoking?

About a billion years late to the table, Sainsbury’s, the UK retail giant, has decided to step into bed with Vodafone to develop it’s own MVNO.

35 days to get an iPad Mini on EE’s 4G service…

Vodafone UK comes out fighting with a 70% discount contract offer for customers upgrading to 4G
