Ewan gets stuffed to the tune of £1,000 on Vodafone International Data

Well do you remember when I had to go to Cannes at short notice because of a client requirement? 

Well cover me in yoghurt and call me Julie, … I got the bill in.

So, just before we begin right: It’s the Vodafone Unlimited data card, which, as far as memory serves, gives you 100 meg inclusive internationally.

I actually used 260 meg. 

Which it turns out, costs £900 quid.


I had to read it again.  I thought they’d billed me for the year or something.

No, it’s £1,000 including VAT. 

Turns out that the Vodafone Unlimited service rate that the card was on did NOT include the 100 meg.  For some reason. 

Time to make a few calls. 

260 megabytes of international data costs a grand?  Geez.
