VODAFONE UK REACHES 101 4G ROAMING DESTINATIONS

VODAFONE UK REACHES 101 4G ROAMING DESTINATIONS

Vodafone UK can now offer customers 4G roaming in 101 destinations – more than any other UK network provider and just in time for the summer holidays.  Great news for customers who want to keep in touch with family and friends whilst away or keep up with the news back home.  New destinations include Argentina, Bahamas, Channel Islands, India and Jamaica.

 Today’s news follows Vodafone’s introduction in May this year of  worry-free, inclusive roaming in 40 destinations for all new and upgrading customers on Pay Monthly 12 & 24 month Red and Red Value bundles* – which is also more than any other UK network.  The bundles include unlimited roaming calls, texts and picture messages as well as a generous monthly data allowance of up to 4GB to give customers greater peace of mind when using their phone abroad to upload photos or download local maps.

 Throughout July and August, Pay as you go customers who purchase a Big Value Bundle** will also receive up to 100 texts, 100 minutes and 500MB of data to use whilst roaming within Vodafone’s inclusive roaming zone.

When travelling further afield, Vodafone WorldTraveller enables customers to use their UK minutes, texts and data for just £5 extra a day in 58 destinations worldwide so they can call home as often as they like whilst in such places as Australia, Brazil, South Africa or USA.  A day is midnight to midnight, local time of capital city and there is no charge for receiving calls.

Working abroad has never been easier either. Vodafone Business Traveller offers worry-free roaming for customers on selected price plans. Business travellers pay the same as they do in the UK for their calls, texts and data from an extra £2.50 a day (exc VAT) in some of the world’s top business destinations.

Full details on all Vodafone’s offerings whilst travelling abroad is available at www.vodafone.co.uk/explore/costs/travelling-abroad/

Having made the UK’s first mobile phone call and sent the first text message, Vodafone has a history as a tech pioneer. In 2018 we made the UK’s first live holographic call using 5G, and were first to start carrying live 5G traffic from a site in Salford, Greater Manchester. We now have 5G in more places than anyone else, with multiple locations now live across the UK and the rest of Europe.

Today we serve more than 18 million mobile and fixed line customers in the UK, with 4G network coverage at 99%.  Our customers voted us the UK’s Best Mobile Network at the 2018 Trusted Reviews Awards – for the second year in a row. To help deliver Gigabit UK, our full-fibre broadband roll-out programme now covers 15 UK towns and cities through partnerships with CityFibre and Openreach.

Connectivity is at the heart of what we do as it gives us a huge opportunity for good. We are using our network, products, talents and technology to help society prosper and respond to significant social and environmental issues.  Our free Digital Parenting magazine is helping families and schools across the UK to navigate the online world safely. Meanwhile, the Vodafone Foundation’s work with researchers at Imperial College is developing personalised cancer treatment using the processing power of smartphones.

We are part of Vodafone Group, one of the world’s largest technology communications companies, with mobile operations in 26 countries, partnerships with mobile networks in 55 more, and fixed broadband operations in 19 markets.  As of 30 September 2019, Vodafone Group had approximately 625 million mobile customers, 27 million fixed broadband customers, and 22 million TV customers – including all of the customers in Vodafone’s joint ventures and associates.
