Vodafone enables $5-a-day roaming in 17 destinations

The destinations covered by the service are Australia, United Kingdom, USA, France, Germany, Netherlands, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Hungary, Malta, Ghana, Romania, Czech Republic and India.

Daily Roaming, a new service launched by Vodafone today, will allow Kiwi customers travelling to 17 destination countries to text, call and use data on their local plan rates for a fixed daily rate of $5.

The destinations covered by the service are Australia, United Kingdom, USA, France, Germany, Netherlands, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Hungary, Malta, Ghana, Romania, Czech Republic and India.

According to Vodafone, the service is included in all Vodafone Consumer On Account plans currently on sale, as well as Vodafone Red Business and Business Basics plans. The charge is applied only on the days that customers use the phone to make or receive a call, send a text or use mobile data while travelling.

“Vodafone is one of the largest telecommunications companies in the world – and we’re passing on this international advantage to our customers by offering them what we believe is the best roaming offer available in New Zealand,” said Matt Williams, consumer director at Vodafone NZ.

Vodafone also announced a 4G roaming service for Kiwi customers that will allow them to tap into the 4G network in select countries while travelling. The service is initially available in Australia, UK and Netherlands, with Spain and Greece to follow within a week.

In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
