Wasting Data? Take Advantage Of Sharing

With 70 per cent of Australian adults using three or more different devices to connect to the internet, Vodafone wanted to find a way to help customers get the most out of their plans. Say hello to Vodafone Shared.

If you find you're always running out of data on your smartphone, but never coming close on your tablet, why not put that unused data to good use? Vodafone Shared lets you make the most of every last KB by allowing you to share data across your devices.

To start sharing, you need to grab an eligible Red plan. All Vodafone Red plans comes with plenty of data, infinite standard national talk and TXT, plus 300 international minutes1 to call the world. All to use in Oz.

Red Plans also include access to a whole bunch of extras unique to Vodafone like $5 Roaming and premium content such as Spotify Premium, Stan or Fairfax subscription. Let's take a look at the benefits.

1. Reduce Wastage

Vodafone Shared lets you make the most of every last KB by allowing you to share with up to 9 other devices. Plus it's all on the one bill2.

2. Take Your Shared Plans Overseas

Use all your data and included value when you travel to 47 countries. It’s just $5 extra a day for each device you use. You can even share with your tablet while you're overseas, so you can stream and surf the web like you would at home3.

3. Keep Entertained

Enjoy entertainment at home or on the go, with up to 12 months access to Spotify Premium, Stan or SMH.com.au subscription on selected Red plans. Data comes from your plan, so use Wi-Fi when at home4.

4. Know Where You’re At

Vodafone Shared plans come with Vodafone Alerts, giving you a heads up when you’ve reached 50%, 85% and 100% of the shared inclusions. Plus, you can track your usage on the My Vodafone app5.
