Mobile broadband Pay as you go tablet SIM pack price plan - from July 2011

Our standard price plan charges

There are bound to be times when your data allowance doesn't last the whole month. So we think it’s a good idea to know beforehand how much you’ll have to pay if you want more. The following are our standard charges for texting or using data in the UK or abroad.

Using data on your device

How do you know how much data you’ve used? You can monitor your data usage by logging into My Account on vodafone.co.uk.

Data charges in the UK

Each £5 TopUp gives you 250MB data allowance in the UK which will last 30 days unless you use the data before then.

Text messages in the UK and abroad

Text messages are barred. Where your mobile equipment allows, you can receive text messages at no charge in the UK. If Vodafone is charged an admin fee from a foreign network operator for you to receive a text, we’ll pass this charge to you.

Data charges abroad

We’ve divided the world into zones which carry different charges. As zones and charges change from time to time, please check vodafone.co.uk/internetabroad before travelling.

Charges are based on a calendar day and calculated in Greenwich Meantime (GMT). Even when you’re abroad, they’ll be based on GMT rather than the local time.

Content control

If content control prevents you from looking at internet content you’ll still be charged for any data used. You can remove content control via My Account or by calling 191 from a Vodafone mobile or 03333 048069 (your standard network charges will apply). Content control will be removed automatically after 48hours from accessing a restricted site unless you contact us.


Prices are correct at time of print and include VAT unless otherwise stated. You can find more information about our charges at vodafone.co.uk/mobilebroadband.

Reference to the UK excludes the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.

If you’re on an unrestricted data price plan or unrestricted data bundle, you can use your data allowance for:

a) calls over the internet;
b) legally sharing data files; and
c) giving other people access to your mobile equipment over the internet.

However, if you’re on a restricted price plan we will:

a) block access to these services;
b) restrict performance; or
c) charge you for this use at the rates published at vodafone.co.uk.

If you want to use mobile equipment as a modem, you’ll need to have a compatible device and be on a price plan that allows this.

You may only use your SIM card in or connect it to tablets, laptops or mobile equipment authorised for use by us. You may not use your SIM card in a phone or in any other mobile equipment which is not set out above. If you do, we’ll ask you to stop and in persistent cases, we will:

a) disconnect you;
b) restrict your use or speed; or
c) charge you for unauthorised use.

All of our services which are offered as "unlimited" (or similar) must only be used for your personal and non commercial use. Top speeds and coverage may vary significantly. For more information about coverage go to vodafone.co.uk/network.

If you do not have a '4G Ready' or '4G' Plan your upload data speed will be limited to 8Mbps and your download data speed will be limited to 10Mbps.

Use of the SIM card is subject to these price plan terms and the pay as you go Airtime Conditions.
