Vodafone Australia extends its $5 per day data roaming deal to China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Singapore, Japan and Thailand this week.
Beginning January 23rd, Vodafone subscribers on the carrier's globetrotter-friendly Red plans can now use their Australian plan's call, text and data allowance for an extra $5 each day.
This includes access to local 3G or 4G networks with unlimited standard calls and text messages back to Australia as well as within the country you’re currently in, plus free SMS messaging.
”We want to give our customers the experience of using their smartphones in Asia just as they would when they’re at home in Australia" said Vodafone Chief Marketing Officer Kim Clarke.
Vodafone’s Red roaming footprint already includes New Zealand, the USA, the UK and most countries in Europe.
The Vodafone Red plans start from $50 per month for a SIM-only plan with 1.5GB of data, with $65 for 2.5GB and $85 for 5GB; a choice of Apple, HTC and Samsung smartphones is available as part of the package for an extra $15 per month.
(Australian telephone support is also part of the Red recipe, with all support calls answered by a support centre based in Hobart rather than being flung off to India or the Philippines.)
