Vodafone new $1 for 10 MB casual mobile data rate: save with optimisation

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 28-Jul-2008 20:46

Vodafone New Zealand has started today to charge casual mobile data usage in a different way. If you don't have a data plan but use your mobile to browse the Internet then you will pay no more than $1 per day for up to 10 MB (ten megabytes) of traffic.

Traffic over this will be charged on a $1 per MB rate. Check all Vodafone mobile broadband plans here.


Vodafone makes a few different APNs available for mobile data connection. The "optimised experience" (i.e. compressed) APN is only automatically activated if you are in GPRS coverage.

If you want to always use the "optimised experience" then you might want to configure your device to use the "opt.vodafone.net.nz" APN.

More bang for your buck.
