Vodafone to temporarily discontinue credit recharging from Sazka terminals

18. March 2011

Today at midnight Vodafone will temporarily stop recharging prepaid SIM cards on the Sazka terminals. It will not have any impact on the number of places where Vodafone customers can recharge credit. The reason for this move is the declared inability of Sazka to fulfil its commitments related to credit recharge via Sazka terminals, proved also by high Sazka's overdue debt to Vodafone worth tens of millions Czech crowns. In all shops with Sazka terminals our customers already can, or will very shortly be able to, buy credit coupons to immediately recharge their balance. There are over 20,000 sites in the Czech Republic where Vodafone's customers can recharge their credit.

Vodafone has informed Sazka in writing about its decision to temporarily stop recharging credit from its terminals. Vodafone is ready to resume its cooperation with Sazka in full provided that it is given sufficient assurance that Sazka's overdue debt to Vodafone will be settled.
