Vodafone Hutchison Australia may be the country’s third-largest telco company, but that hasn’t stopped it from encountering serious trouble over the last few years. The company lost 46,000 customers over the course of 2014, but Vodafone has invested into a number of strategies that it believes will help it become “Australia’s favourite telco” by the end of 2015.
In regards to its prepaid options, at time of writing Vodafone offers three plans: Prepaid Cap, Pay As You Go, and 365 Day, with four, four, and six price tiers respectively. The Prepaid Cap plan is a data-heavy talk and text plan that expires after 28 days, and comes with infinite text. The Pay As You Go plan has a 30 day expiry, and simply gives you the recharge value (minimum $20) in flexible credit, and infinite national calls to other Vodafone numbers. The 365 Day plan also gives you the recharge value in flexible credit (minimum $20), along with at least 50 minutes of calls to other Vodafone numbers, however it doesn’t expire for 365 days.
