Off-Peak Rates Throughout The Festive Season

Vodafone Says Merry Christmas With Off-Peak Rates Throughout The Festive Season

Vodafone New Zealand is saying Merry Christmas to its 638,000* customers by charging all calls between 7pm on Friday 22nd December and 7am on Wednesday 3rd January at off-peak rates.

This means that once customers on plans have used their included minutes, their cheaper off-peak rates will apply regardless of when customers call. For Prepay customers, all calls during this period will be charged at off-peak rates.

According to Vodafone New Zealand Managing Director, John Rohan, the special rates are Vodafone’s way of saying thank you and Merry Christmas.

“Vodafone has increased its customer base in New Zealand five times in just two years and our off-peak rates are a big thank you to everyone who made this possible,” Mr Rohan said.

“Christmas is a time when everyone wants to keep in touch, and Vodafone’s off-peak rates during this period make it cheaper to do this,” he said.

Vodafone New Zealand continues to win the race for new customers, with almost 60 per cent of new mobile connections for the quarter ending September 2000.

* Customer numbers as at September 2000.
