Vodafone to launch 5G on VOXI and Pay As You Go

  • VOXI, the youth brand from Vodafone launches contract-free 5G available from today, with Vodafone Pay As You Go coming soon
  • The new offering will also include unlimited data on the UK’s best mobile network*
  • Vodafone has 5G in more places than any other network with 77 towns and cities in Europe, including 30 in the UK now live
  • 5G comes at no extra cost with VOXI

VOXI, Vodafone’s youth brand, is launching 5G with no contract. The new offering, available from today, will also include unlimited data, making it perfect for customers who want the flexibility of a mobile plan with no commitment and the freedom of endless data and 5G speeds. 5G is up to ten times faster than 4G – meaning customers can stream videos, download box sets and game faster on mobile than ever before, with no lag or dropout. The new VOXI Endless Data plan will launch with an introductory price at £30 until February 2020, with the standard price being £35.

VOXI offers 5G at no additional cost and Vodafone’s 5G service is available in more places than any other operator with 77 towns and cities now live across the UK and Europe (30 towns and cities in the UK). Vodafone is the only UK network to offer 5G roaming – meaning this is now available for VOXI customers too and will soon be available for Vodafone Pay As You Go customers.

VOXI 5G will launch with three 5G phones: the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G, Huawei Mate 20X 5G and the new Samsung A90 5G starting from just £23 per month and only £53 per month including VOXI’s new 5G unlimited data plan. All phones are available with no upfront cost, no mobile contract and flexible payment instalments via PayPal Credit**. VOXI customers can purchase a phone without being tied into a lengthy mobile contract. They can pause, change or cancel their VOXI plan at any time and continue their flexible phone instalments with PayPal Credit. VOXI gives customers the flexibility to make additional phone payments to reduce the length of term, or pay off what’s left to get the newest upgrade.

The flexibility of mobile plans without a contract offers the perfect solution for the increasing number of people buying SIM-free phones. It also caters for visitors travelling to the UK wanting the best mobile experience on a shorter temporary basis.

In order for customers to benefit from Vodafone’s 5G network, customers will need a 5G plan and 5G phone. More detail on the launch of 5G for Vodafone Pay As You Go customers will be announced soon.

Vodafone’s 5G network is now live in Birkenhead, Birmingham, Bolton, Bootle, Bristol, Cardiff, Droylsden, Eccles, Glasgow, Horwich, Huyton-With-Roby, Isles of Scilly, Lancaster, Liverpool, Llandudno, London, Manchester, Mangotsfield, Newbury, Paisley, Penarth, Plymouth, Prestwich, Salford, Solihull, Stoke-on-Trent, Stretford, Wallasey, Warrington and Wolverhampton.


Notes to Editors

*The UK’s best mobile network according to Trusted Reviews

** PayPal Credit is like a credit card you can use for your online purchases and spread the cost of your purchase. Phone purchases made on ‪ qualify for 0% interest instalment offers with a term of 30 months. When you apply for PayPal Credit, you get a credit line to pay for today’s purchase and future purchases up to your credit limit. PayPal Credit is subject to status, terms and conditions apply.

How Paypal Credit will work for future purchases outside of instalment offers with VOXI: If you are approved for a credit limit with PayPal Credit and use it for future purchases outside VOXI, the APR for those purchases will not be more than the standard rate of interest, currently 17.9%, and will be even lower in many circumstances if you take advantage of their offers and promotions. Representative Example: £1,200 Assumed Credit Limit Representative 17.9% APR (variable). 17.9% pa Purchase Rate (variable).
