Vodafone makes grab for Telstra customers with free month offer
Vodafone will offer a free month’s access to any customer porting their number to its network.
There’s little love lost between the major telco networks, and with Telstra recently the victim of several outages, including a minor network outage incident earlier today, it was really only a matter of time until a competing network pounced.
Vodafone’s done just that, announcing an initiative that will give customers a free month’s access when porting their number to the Vodafone network on any post-paid plan. That includes month to month plans, with the applicable fees only charged from the second month up until the point where contracts are cancelled, but doesn’t apply to any prepaid plan.
Yes, technically that also applies to Optus customers porting across to Vodafone as well, and there's no doubt Vodafone would like those as well, but in the context of Telstra's recent woes it's rather obvious where this deal is more specifically targeted.
However, the deal is only being offered for quite a short time, being announced today and applicable only for customers who port their number across by 29 March 2016. So if you’re keen, you’d better get your skates on.
