Coronavirus: 30 days free data for customers – Telecoms company

As the deadly coronavirus disease continues to ravage different parts of the world, a telecoms company in the UK, Vodafone is offering free unlimited mobile data to its customers.

The mobile network said it was doing so as part of its support measures during the coronavirus pandemic, a day after they were called out for increasing their tariffs, BBC reports.

Customers considered “vulnerable” will be automatically upgraded, it said, while others can apply.

Many mobile operators and other services raise their prices in April each year, by an amount linked to inflation.

Other phone operators had already announced their price increases before people began to lose their jobs during the coronavirus shutdown.

“We appreciate now is not a good time to be communicating a price rise,” a spokesman said of the 2.5% increase.

The “vulnerable” customers who will automatically be upgraded to the unlimited data scheme include those with declared disabilities or mental health issues, “among other things”, a Vodafone spokesman said. Those customers will receive a text telling them about it.

Another half a million will be able to apply for the free 30 days through Vodafone’s rewards scheme in the company’s app.
