Okay here’s an ineresting one about Vodafone…. So right now they’re charging shitloads per meg for data, yes? Well, that’s hopefully about to change. Here is a perspective from SMS Text News reader and Mobizines Manager, James Whatley. He was on the phone to Vodafone’s customer services earlier today…
Y’know that tip I gave you a while back about VF’s Data strategy shift for March?
Well – I just got an exclusive of sorts from them..
Figured I’d call up – try and find out what the coo was:
£7.50 (pcm) will get you 100mb of data to use every month.
Or if you don’t want to do that –
Everyone will automatically be upgraded to a tariff that says as soon as you use 2mb of data VF will charge you £2 and then give you an extra 24mb to use over the next 24hrs.
However – they won’t launch tomorrow as predicted – they’re still having ‘teething problems’.
Oh yeah – and Vodafone Live is being scrapped too.
They’re replacing that with Google at the same time.
FYI and all that chap.
That’s great news for us at Mobizines..
Figured I’d share it with you too.
Thank you very much James! Here’s hoping, eh? That should probably keep a few folk from jumping ship to other networks. That said…….. 100mb of data is a bit…. gahh. Least it’s something!
