Thanks to our new offer, customers now have the Internet at hand on their mobiles wherever they are.

Tomorrow Vodafone is launching a unique solution that speeds up downloads of Internet pages onto phones considerably and automatically optimizes all pages for browsing on mobile phone displays. At the same time, Vodafone is launching a new Vodafone live! Mobile portal and is radically changing the way in which it bills for Internet usage on mobile phones. As part of a special Christmas offer, it is offering all customers fast Internet for mobile phones free of charge for half a year.

“Mobile phones used solely for calling and sending SMS messages are a thing of the past. Thanks to our new offer, customers now have the Internet at hand on their mobiles wherever they are. And they are getting this in a way that is completely different from the way it was before. For the start of this year’s Christmas season, we have prepared ideal conditions so that absolutely everybody can experience the benefits of Internet access on their mobile phones,” says David Duroň, Consumer Marketing Director.

The complete Internet on mobile offer consists of three pillars:

The first is considerable technological improvements of the downloading of Internet pages onto mobile phones:

  • automatic optimization of Internet pages for mobile phone displays
  • up to six times faster downloading of Internet pages to mobiles

The second pillar is a brand new format of Vodafone live! which is becoming a mobile portal and initial home page, and now includes an Internet search field and the options of saving bookmarks and browsing history.

The third pillar of the complete mobile phone Internet offer consists of new data tariffs, which are also available to prepaid card users and have been prepared especially for browsing the Internet on mobile phones:

  • Vodafone mobile phone Internet for a day (24h ) for CZK 17 per day (FUP 5 MB)
  • Vodafone mobile phone Internet for a month for CZK 177 (FUP 100 MB)

Until January 31, 2009, all customers can also activate a Christmas gift – free mobile phone Internet for six months. Customers who use the existing Připojení na stálo (Permanent Connection) and Připojení na dlouho (Long-time Connection) data tariffs can activate a half-year Christmas gift in the form of CZK 177 per month discount on their tariff.

With their mobile phone Internet offer, the operator continues to break nonsensical market rules, enabling customers to use their mobiles for much more than just making calls and sending and receiving SMS messages. Vodafone was also the first operator to, for instance, offer the same calling and SMS rates for prepaid and postpaid customers, eliminate the difference between calling during peak and off-peak hours, offer the same rate for calls to all networks, present prices with VAT, and do away with the obligation to sign long-term contracts.
