Vodafone prepaid plans offer a focus on flexibility, including plans where you can build your own inclusions.
What services does Vodafone Mobile offer?
Mobile network brand Vodafone provides prepaid SIM-only services on its own 4G and 3G networks across Australia. It also sells a limited and frequently changing range of prepaid handsets on outright terms; these are nearly always quite low-end budget-centric models.
Vodafone prepaid offerings include its Combo plans, which come with a variety of higher-end inclusions, Pay As You Go Plus plans, which work on set call, text and data values over a long period of time and its MyMix plans.
MyMix plans allow you to set variables including calls (both national and international), data and expiry periods to come up with a final plan cost. There’s quite a bit of variance in the MyMix plan offerings, which are designed to meet multiple different consumer needs.
How much does Vodafone Mobile cost?
Vodafone prepaid combo deals sell for $30-$50 as a starter pack, with recharges that then range from $10-$60. Every tier includes standard national calls and texts as standard, but the lower tiers of recharges expire at faster rates, down to as little as 7 days for the $10 recharge. At the top level, Combo deals expire after 28 days.
Starter packs for Vodafone’s Pay As You Go Plus plans are offered for between $30 to $50, while recharges cost $10 to $50. Expiry for all recharges and starter packs is 365 days. Calls are charged at 20c per minute. That’s the same price you’ll pay for a text, while data will cost you 2c per MB.
Pricing for Vodafone’s prepaid MyMix plans is highly variable depending on your choice of calls, data and expiry options. Plans on MyMix start at $8 with short expiry all the way up to a $110 offering with all the extras and 90 days expiry.
What extras does Vodafone Mobile offer?
In the prepaid space Vodafone doesn’t lay on all that many extras, which isn’t entirely surprising given that the core appeal of a prepaid plan is budget certainty rather than additional enticements.
Its combo plans do include quantities of calling minutes to selected International destinations, with higher value recharges including unlimited calls to a small selection of countries.
