Free broadband to the end of the year

Media Release
9 May 2008

Free broadband to the end of the year

Free broadband is back from Vodafone with our launch of three new broadband plans.

Vodafone’s Easy Pack, Ideal Pack and Ultimate Pack combine fixed phone line rental and broadband with either 1GB, 5GB or 20GB of data a month. Easy Pack costs $70, Ideal Pack costs $80 and Ultimate Pack costs $90.

Customers who sign up to one of our new Packs before the end of July, and have either a landline tolls package or a You Choose plan as well, get 1GB of broadband free to the end of the year. Plus we’ll throw in a modem and connection, usually priced at $148, for free and we also offer customers a 30 day refund if they aren’t happy with the service.

Vodafone Director of Marketing Mark Rushworth says the sooner customers sign up the more free broadband they get.

“We shook up the market with our free broadband offer last year and we’re doing it again. Customers are telling us they want more value, more flexibility and more opportunity to get into the broadband market, so that’s what we’re delivering.”

Customers who want a bigger data allowance can upgrade their plan and get the equivalent discount ($30 a month).

Talk 1 includes unlimited calls to national landlines during weeknights between 6pm and 8am and all day and night every weekend.

“The earlier customers sign up the more time they can spend with free broadband,” says Rushworth.
