“In these data spots, anyone, including customers of our competition, can test the real speed and ease of using our mobile Internet connection. Just like it works even on fixed connections. Mobile Internet is ideal, especially for entrepreneurs and managers who spend a lot of time on the road and always need to be online,” says Pavel Kusý, Director of Marketing for Business Customers at Vodafone.

Aside from being able to try out the connection at Vodafone shops, all Vodafone tariff customers can also choose one of the main data tariffs, ‘Connected for a Long Time’ and ‘Always Connected’, and try them out for a month without the monthly charge. Any Vodafone tariff customer may take advantage of this offer, provided they have not already activated one of the aforementioned data tariffs.

Vodafone Mobile Connect uses GPRS/EDGE technology which enables connections up to 236 kbps and is available to 75 percent of the Czech population.
