Gearing up for the expansion of its 4G LTE network in late September, Vodafone UK is offering new plans in a promotion it is calling "4G Bonus". Customers signing up for new 12 or 24 month contracts with Vodafone on its new "4G-ready" plans will receive double the standard amount of data it offers, plus an additional 4GB of data for the life of their contract.
This means for someone who goes for the entry-level plan and opts to be 4G-ready will get 6GB of data per month instead of the standard 1GB on a regular plan — and the starting price for such a plan with 6GB of data and unlimited talk and texts is just £26 per month.
As a gesture to those who signed up for its 4G-ready plans before this point, Vodafone is extending the 4GB of additional data to anyone who is already a customer at no additional cost. For those wanting to switch carriers or plans starting with this promotion, you have until the end of October to get on-board. You can find a full chart breakdown of the new plans and prices after the break.
