Make Vodafone Red Share part of the family

Media Release
1 July 2014
Make Vodafone Red Share part of the family

Hand out data like it’s pocket money or give the gift of unlimited NZ and Australia talk and TXT to family. Vodafone today unveils Red Share, letting customers share the benefits of their Red mobile package with the people they love connecting to most.

New and existing customers on a Vodafone Red plan can add family members for only $29 per person per month. Just like them, they’ll get unlimited talk and TXTs to standard New Zealand and Australia numbers, as well as being able to share their data allowance.

And customers can also share their Red plan data with a tablet. For a limited time, customers can connect a Red Share Tablet plan for $0 a month.

Vodafone’s Consumer Director, Matt Williams, says Red Share offers great value for busy families who want to stay better connected with each other.

“With unlimited talk and TXT to NZ and Oz, Red Share lets families and friends use their mobiles the way they want without worrying about bills or unexpected costs. The plans offer the simplicity and value customers want – all on one bill.

“Kiwis increasingly use more than one device to go online, and Red Share Tablet lets them use their data allowance across multiple devices.”

All members of the sharing group can monitor their usage with the My Vodafone App which provides notifications and controls.

Working Mum and part-time student, Tiffaney Day, is adding 12-year old daughter Bella to her Red plan.

“Red Share will make it easier – and cheaper – for me to stay in touch with Bella. By sharing my data with her, and Red Share giving her unlimited calls and TXTs, I won’t have to worry about her running out of credit. It’s great value, and it’s all on one bill.”

Matt adds: “It’s super easy to be in control of your account with Red Share. There’s just one bill to manage and the My Vodafone app lets customers view their balance and check out how much data is left – for all connections sharing the account.”

Vodafone Red Share allows multiple sharers, including up to four Red Share plans and five Red Share tablets. To find out more, go to

Red plans start at $69, and are required before a Red Share or Red Share Tablet plan can be purchased.
