New Loaded tariffs from Vodafone: Minutes and SMSes included in the monthly fee

30. August 2006

With the new Loaded tariffs that Vodafone will introduce on 31.8.2006, customers will be able to decide the ratio of free minutes and SMSes that are included in their monthly fee. Loaded tariffs operate on the principle of credits. Nobody dictates in advance how one will use their allowance.

With the new Loaded tariffs that Vodafone will introduce on 31.8.2006, customers will be able to decide the ratio of free minutes and SMSes that are included in their monthly fee.

Loaded tariffs operate on the principle of credits. Nobody dictates in advance how one will use their allowance. Everything is completely up to the customer. This applies to the standard monthly fee, from which the prices for calls and SMS messages are gradually taken away. Vodafone is thus the first Czech operator to include text messages in the monthly fee by its all standard tariffs. Until now, charges for SMSes were applied separately, on top of the monthly fee.

With the inclusion of SMSes in the monthly allowance, subscribers get even better control over their expenditures. Ongoing services Smart Overview* and Flexilimit** also serve to help customers manage their mobile telecommunications expenses.

* With Smart Overview the customer gets information such as how many calling minutes they have used and the number of SMSes they have sent in their mobile or in other self-care channels. ** Flexilimit enables the customer to set a monthly limit; when it is reached the customer receives an SMS message informing them of this.

The tariffs are to correspond with a customer’s mobile usage, to accommodate their needs in a given month. "They can choose the amount of the allowance that they want to use for calling and the amount they want to use for sending SMSes. This is completely up to them and they always get the maximum value for their money," says Chris Robbins, Vice President for Marketing, Vodafone.

If the amount in the framework of the monthly fee is completely spent, the price for calls and text messages exceeding the monthly “credit” is the same (see table). Customers now therefore need only think about one price.

Other services, such as data and MMS, are subject to prices that correspond with the current standard pricelist.

From tomorrow only the Loaded tariffs will be offered. Existing customers will be able to decide whether they want to continue using any of the older Vodafone tariffs, or switch free of charge to the Loaded tariffs.

The Loaded tariffs can be combined with specially discounted phones and again with no contract.

Loaded for Firms

Business customers will be able to take advantage of all the benefits of the new tariffs and, furthermore, they will get a full range of perks in the scope of the Loaded for Firms offer. New and existing business customers who get a SIM card with any of the Loaded tariffs can get:

  • Free calls within their firms with the VPN Firm Unlimited service, and a permanent discount in the amount of the monthly fee for this service.
  • A company telephone from CZK 1 thanks to additional discounts in the amount of CZK 2,000.
  • Opportunity to get a free package from the Gift Basket for up to one year.

It is not necessary to sign a service agreement to make the most of this offer, and the customer can get all the benefits of this offer at the same time (up to 4 SIM cards).
