Vodafone’s General Manager of Devices, Katie Turkal, said: “We’ve had an overwhelming response from customers since pre-registration for the GALAXY S5 went live, with thousands of customers signing up.”
“We’re confident customers will be delighted with the generous data inclusions we’re able to offer with our Red plans and a special $60 per month GS5 offer. We’re offering way more data bang for your buck than most of our competitors.”
Ms Turkal said its current Double Data offer, is already proving incredibly popular for heavy data users, available on all GS5 plans $60 and above.
“Feedback from customers on social media is that they simply can’t believe you can get 10GB data per month for just $100. With our Vodafone Red plans you also get the added bonus of being able to take your plan overseas with you for $5 extra a day, and Aussie customer service.”
Katie Turkal says: “We’ve built our mobile plans around the internet because we know our customers will want to let loose playing with all the new features on the GS5, like the larger and brighter full HD super AMOLED screen and faster processor. It’s a beautiful device and we want our customers to be able to fully enjoy all things online.”
