Vodafone offers incentives for those who take up 100Mbps plans

By

Vodafone Hutchison Australia is offering customers who sign for its 100Mpbs NBN plan a Vodafone TV and a Google Home Mini which costs $150.

In a statement, the company said this offer was in addition to the reduced prices on all three Vodafone NBN plans late last year.

The NBN Co launched a promotion recently to try and get users to move to 100Mbps connections, by offering retail service providers a discount of $160 for each customer who signed up for these plans before the end of June 2019.

Vodafone general manager of Fixed Broadband, Matthew Lobb, said the rise of the connected home and rush of IoT devices expected to hit the market this year would drive the demand for faster home broadband.

“[The year] 2019 will be the biggest year for NBN connections and we want consumers to enjoy the full benefits of Vodafone NBN,” he said.

“There is a growing trend for higher speed broadband with more than 80% of our customers choosing our NBN 50 and NBN 100 plans. We believe this is being driven by the smarthome revolution.”

Lobb said in 2018,, Australians had an average of 17 connected devices and this was expected to rise to 37 devices per household by 2022.

"Families in particular will need to ensure their home broadband can cater for the growing number of devices," he said.

“Vodafone Premium NBN is our fastest speed product. With a typical busy speed of 83mbps and the customer experience that Vodafone has become known for, the addition of two bonus smarthome products is the icing on the cake.”

Vodafone TV, which has an RRP of $72, runs on Google’s Android platform with access to apps and games through the Google Play Store.

It is custom-built for Vodafone with key features including 4K compatible high definition resolution, access to a range of streaming services, free-to-air tuner and Google voice-search.
