4 Days To Christmas: Vodafone's Unlimited Expiry Top Up Mobile Broadband
If thanks to your procrastinating alter-ego you've missed Saturday's deadline for getting your pressies out in time for Christmas, Vodafone's new pre-pay mobile broadband modem may be worth a last minute look.
The new Vodafone USB modem is gift-friendly at £39, cutting 3's Pay As You Go Modem by a tenner. 1GB of allowance will cost £15, which does cost a fiver more than on 3...
The upside is this: unlike 3's 30 day limit, the 1GB topup has no expiry date. So for low web usage people, the 1GB top up may last them through to Easter and generate some late christmas cheer.
In addition, if you order by tomorrow Monday, you should get it before the big day. According to the Vodafone site:
We'll always try our best to deliver everything the next working day. If we can't manage that, your order should arrive within 2-4 working days. Buying a present? Order by 22 December and we'll aim to have everything with you before Christmas Day.
Vodafone reckons a £15 1GB top up will provide close to 30 hours of solid web surfing. What about speeds? Apparently, it should be around the same as 3, at an official 3.6Mbps (1-2 Mbps in the real world).
You can top up with a voucher, or by calling 08080 101238. The TopUp and Go modem is also available in store, and you can also order online via the link below. In fact, I wish I could cancel my 3 mobile broadband contract now and swap over!
