Ready for something amazing? We've just unveiled Vodafone's Red 4G-ready plans, and they're a little bit special...
It’s time to spill the incredibly tasty beans: We’ve got two of the biggest names in mobile entertainment on board for Vodafone’s Red 4G-ready plans.
Yep: Vodafone’s Red 4G-ready network plans are here, and they’re set to change the way you use the mobile internet, thanks to a slew of amazing music and live sports action from Spotify and Sky Sports Mobile TV. Ready to soak up every goal, or stream the music you love on the go? Read on for the full details.
Vodafone 4G – ready to entertain you
Our Vodafone Red 4G-ready plans will be available from 12 August, with our 4G network following on 29 August in London. After London, launches in Birmingham, Bradford, Coventry, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham and Sheffield will come before the end of the year. Vodafone is also planning to provide coverage using 2G, 3G or 4G services to 98% of the UK population. But there’s much more to the story here than just the jump to 4G.
We know that the speed of 4G on your mobile is nothing without amazing things to stream, download and browse, and that’s why we’ve partnered with Sky Sports and Spotify to offer a big bonus to suit you.
“Choose between either Spotify Premium or access to all the action from Sky Sports Mobile included as part of your plan.”
Sign up or upgrade to one of our Red 4G-ready plans and you can choose between either Spotify Premium – which offers unlimited, ad-free music even when you’re offline – or access to all the action from Sky Sports Mobile TV included as part of your plan. Yep, that’s right: your subscription is included for either service for up to two whole years.
That means you can find the right music for every moment, or watch the very best in live sport right on your phone.
Like the look of #4GSport? There’ll be over 150 hours of live Barclays Premier League action on Sky Sports Mobile TV, and our Red 4G-ready plans launch in time for the new season, so you won’t miss a kick.
Or does #4GMusic sound more your thing? Get instant access to millions of songs from your favourite artists when you’re out and about with a Spotify Premium account, and your subscription will be included with any Vodafone Red 4G-ready plan.
Upgrading from a Vodafone Red plan? Choose from either Sky Sports Mobile TV or Spotify Premium, get double the amount of data you currently have and access 4G for just £5 extra each month without needing to sign-up to a new contract*. Nice!
Guy Laurence, CEO, Vodafone UK said: “With 4G, speed is just the start: it’s what you do with it that really matters. We are taking 4G into a new league by offering sport; and changing the tune with all the music you could want. 4G is coming of age, and there’s plenty to look forward to…”
Sounds like a plan
Our Vodafone Red 4G-ready plans come in three sizes – Vodafone Red 4G, Red 4G L and Red 4G XL. To make the most of that, as a Vodafone Red 4G-ready customer you’ll get double the data allowance of our regular 3G Red plans, and the choice of either Spotify Premium or Sky Sports Mobile TV access for up to two years. Oh, and that’s on top of unlimited calls and texts.
Even better, though, you’ll be able to find out exactly how much data you need for the first three months with our Data Test Drive. There’s more information on Vodafone Data Test Drive here.
“You’ll get double the data allowance of our regular 3G Red plans.”
Customers who already have a 4G-ready phone and want a SIM-only deal can get access to 4G from just £26 each month**. Vodafone Red 4G-ready is also available on 24 month plans, with a 4G-ready handset included, from just £34 a month.
Existing Vodafone Red customers with a 4G-ready device can upgrade to 4G for only £5 extra each month.
There’s a Vodafone Red 4G-ready plan to suit everyone, though, and with a mobile data allowance of up to 8GB on Vodafone Red 4G XL, you can do a serious amount of browsing, social networking and streaming.
*Upgrading Vodafone Red customers will need to have a 4G-ready device.
