Surf's Up With Vodafone's Prepay Broadband Surfer

15 APRIL 2009 - Prepay customers have been clamouring for more data on their mobiles and now you can get up to half a gigabyte for $40 with Vodafone's Broadband Surfer plan.

Only available to Supa Prepay customers, Vodafone Broadband Surfer allows customers to surf the net, watch movies and join in the social media fun for only $40 a month. And if you exceed your 512MB of data, simply buy another 512MB block for $40 and carry on surfing.

Broadband Surfer is great for small businesses that might need data on an occasional basis, or for bach owners who don't want to miss out on the internet while they're enjoying the waves.

Vodafone's GM of Products and Pricing Paul Toomey says anyone can use their mobiles as a modem with this plan, or simply buy a new SIM dedicated to data.

"If you've got a Vodem Stick or a Vodafone Connect Card but don't need ongoing monthly data, then Broadband Surfer lets you use what you need, when you need it. We'll let you know when you're at 90% usage and again at 100% with a TXT, freeing you up to concentrate on what's important to you."

Best of all, Vodafone Prepay customers can put together their own package of broadband options from the full range, including $1/day, $10/100MB and now $40/512MB.

"So if you're on the 100MB Lite plan but realise you need a whole lot more, you can add 512MB Surfer for the rest of the month. Or if you've used up your 512MB but only need a bit to get through to the end of the month, you can opt for the $1/day casual rate. The choice is entirely yours," says Toomey.

Existing Supa Prepay users can add Broadband Surfer to their phones by sending 'BUYTopUp512MB" to 756. New customers will need to go in store to buy a new SIM and have it activated for prepay data.

Vodafone Broadband Surfer is available from April 15 and costs $40 for 512MB of data.
