Roam faster in more places – including the South Pacific

Roam faster in more places – including the South Pacific


Vodafone is expanding its horizons so Kiwis can enjoy worry-free roaming in even more places. From 18 September Fiji, Vanuatu, Samoa, Tonga, Papua New Guinea and Nauru will be included in Vodafone’s Daily Roaming service, boosting the eligible destinations to 23 countries.

Vodafone was the first New Zealand network to offer 4G roaming and now has now expanded its 4G roaming footprint to 16 countries. 11 of the Daily Roaming destinations now have 4G available; meaning Vodafone customers can get a consistently fast experience on their 4G capable devices, wherever 4G is available.

For only $5 a day, Daily Roaming allows customers to use the TXTs, calls and data from their local plan overseas– so they can roam as if they were at home.

Vodafone Consumer Director, Matt Williams, says “We Kiwis pride ourselves on being the world’s best travellers, and what’s more we love to be able to share our experiences and stay in touch with what’s going on back at home. Whether it’s taking selfies from the pool lounger, checking emails over a cocktail or calling home to check on the cat – Kiwis heading to these South Pacific destinations can do it all.”

Williams adds: “We’re all about ensuring that New Zealanders can confidently connect in an affordable way to home and work, while travelling overseas. 4G roaming is another Vodafone first for New Zealanders –and the extension of 4G connectivity in more locations means our customers can get the reliability and speed they need both at home and overseas.”

To get the holiday envy underway Vodafone is rolling out a competition, inviting Kiwis to upload a brag-worthy travel pic on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #loveroaming. Participants will be in to win one of five travel vouchers worth $1,000. Full details of the competition are available on www.loveroaming.co.nz.
