Vodafone opens 4G for prepaid users

Vodafone has announced it will allow existing prepaid customers to access its 4G network

Vodafone has announced it will allow existing prepaid customers to access its 4G network.

The telco had previously only allowed postpaid customers to access its faster 4G network, which launched earlier this year.

While existing prepaid customers can access the Vodafone 4G network from today, any new prepaid customers will have to wait until mid-November.

Vodafone Australia's Chief Marketing Officer, Kim Clarke, said the decision to move existing customers first is a "reward".

"We’re rewarding our existing prepaid customers by transitioning them to our superfast wide-band 4G network first. Some have been with Vodafone for many years and we want to ensure their move is a smooth one," she said in a statement.

"We also look forward to welcoming new prepaid customers to Vodafone’s superfast 4G network next month."

Vodafone has advised that existing prepaid customers who already have a 4G smartphone may need to change the settings on their phone to enable 4G access.

Vodafone has also increased the data limit on its $40 prepaid plan from 750MB to 1GB, and included $750 worth of call credit value, up from $650.
