Vodafone rolls out unlimited data mobile plans for Australian businesses
The new Business Advance plans extend your standard data cap with unlimited browsing at 1.5Mbps.
After introducing unlimited data plans for residential mobile customers back in May, Vodafone has taken the lead by becoming the first Australian telco to extend the unlimited-data approach to Aussie businesses, too.
Available starting today, 1 August 2018, Vodafone's new Business Advance plans follow a similar structure to its regular unlimited plans. Each plan comes with an allotment of "Max speed" data that lets you browse and download at the fastest speeds available on your network. Once you exceed that allotment, you can continue to download as much as you want but only at an Internet speed of up to 1.5Mbps.
As we advise in our comparison of unlimited mobile plans, it's important to understand the limits of a 1.5Mbps connection. While it's adequate for sending and receiving emails and general Internet browsing, any task that involves downloading large files, photos or videos is likely to prove untenable. In other words, don't expect to use your FTP service or conduct a video conference after using up your max-speed data.
Along with "unlimited" data, these new Business Advance plans come with Vodafone's trademark $5 roaming service, which is useful for businesses that send their employees trotting around the globe. Businesses that add more than ten connections to their Business Advance plan also benefit from complimentary Account Management support, which assigns them a dedicated account manager for assessing and customising their Business Advance plan to best suit their particular business needs.
Business Advance plans are available both as SIM-only services as well as handset bundles if you want to supply your employees with their own work devices. Bundle plans also benefit from a Vodafone Tech Fund, which provides a central pool of credit for purchasing new handsets and accessories.
