Rev up the farm with your new Honda from Vodafone

Rev up the farm with your new Honda from Vodafone


Vodafone is giving South Island Agricultural Field Days visitors plenty of reasons to visit its stand at Lincoln next weekend, with a brand new Honda CFR150F motorbike, worth $5,217 up for grabs.

The giveaway is part of Vodafone’s commitment to give South Islanders access to the very best tools and services. Already, more than 90,000 addresses in rural New Zealand now have access to broadband through the government’s Rural Broadband Initiative, and mainlanders will gain a total of 52 new cellsites over the course of the programme. That means new mobile coverage for over 31,000 addresses and multiple roads and highways across the region.

Vodafone’s Head of Rural Marketing, Darren Hopper, says Vodafone is passionate about the rural sector. “Our network roll-out across rural New Zealand is connecting more farmers and rural residents every day. Together with our partners and our rural product suite, we will help transform the industry and ensure it remains a powerhouse of New Zealand growth.”

Hopper says Vodafone has a larger presence than ever before at this year’s South Island Agricultural Field Days and the company is keen to demonstrate the rural network roll out across the South Island.

“Federated Farmers representatives will also be on the Vodafone site to discuss the great deal from Vodafone available to shareholders.”

Vodafone’s exclusive Field Days offers include discounts on wireless broadband installation, mobile plans, and accessories. Customers who sign up to Vodafone’s Smart Data plans (for 24 months) at Field Days will receive the first month’s charges free. The installation cost for wireless broadband is reduced to $49 +GST for all visitors who sign up at the event.

Vodafone will be exhibiting at Lincoln Field Days , on site numbers 514 and 515.

Through the Rural Broadband Initiative Vodafone has built 35 new towers and upgraded 137 of its existing sites to deliver broadband to rural communities throughout New Zealand.
