What's the best way to make your competitors unlimited plans look a little more limited than they were before?
By increasing your own uncapped data limits before throttling comes in, with Vodafone doing exactly that, as its new plans page explains.
For those who haven't heard the news yet, Telstra launched its 4G unlimited plans earlier today, its 4G network then crashed in what is presumed to be a completely unrelated circumstance as its plans aren't on sale until 3 May, Vodafone launched its now since-revised and increased unlimited plans (with the increases as described below), and Optus, which has its own unlimited plans, had no comment on either set of plans or Telstra's 4G (but not 3G) network crash.
Previously, Vodafone was charging $60 per month for unlimited calls and text, with 30GB of data before throttling to 1.5Mbps speeds. This has now received a 10GB bonus, so you get 40GB before throttling applies.
The top $100 plan was 100GB a few hours ago, but has now received a 20GB bonus taking it to a whopping 120GB of data before throttling kicks into.
The plans give 5000, 7500 and 10000 Qantas Points respectively, as well as an allocation of 2000, 3000 and 4000 International minutes to Zone 1 countries, and 200, 300 and 400 minutes respectively to Zone 2 countries.
Vodafone also has its unbeatable $5 per day roaming to over 60 countries to boot, making its plans very attractive to a lot of different users.
Naturally, each network has its own range of benefits, so you'll need to choose wisely to get the plan that suits you best, but we live in a golden age of telecommunications, data and computing, and for the customer, things have never been better, with the best still yet to come!
