Following in Telstra and Optus’ footsteps, Vodafone has announced a massive 12-month discount on its largest mobile SIM-only plan, along with a huge full-speed data bonus.

Vodafone versus Telstra and Optus: Big data deals compared

Normally $120 per month, Vodafone’s SIM Only Ultra plan is currently discounted to $60 per month for the first 12 months, saving you a total of $720 in your first year. Vodafone is also throwing in a bonus 350GB of fast data each month: while this plan normally includes 150GB, this means you’ll get 500GB of full-speed data on Vodafone’s 3G, 4G or 5G networks where applicable for as long as you stay on the plan.

The Vodafone Ultra plan also includes unlimited standard talk and text in Australia, plus unlimited ‘infinite’ data, capped at speeds of 25Mbps. This means that if you do burn through your 500GB allowance in a month, you can keep using data at no extra cost, but at reduced speeds. Vodafone is also offering new customers a free three-month Amazon Prime and Amazon Music Unlimited subscription when you sing up by March 31, 2021.

There’s no contract with this plan, and you can leave at any time with no penalty – but be aware that if you’re pairing the plan with a new smartphone on a Vodafone handset payment, you’ll need to pay out the remaining device balance. The $60 price tag (normally $120) is discounted until February 24, 2021, terms apply.
