Vodafone Portugal Launches the First Mobile Broadband Service with Billing by Time

Vodafone Portugal has launched a new prepaid mobile broadband package, branded Vita Net Light, which for the first time offers billing by internet connection time. The new plan offers prepaid customers a 10-hour 1.0 Mbps mobile broadband internet access for EUR10, which can be used any time during a 6-month period without any data traffic limit.  

Vodafone today launched a new prepaid price plan for Mobile Broadband called Vita Net Light. For a top-up of 10 euros, this new plan gives Mobile Broadband Internet access for 10 hours, which can be used at any time during a 6-month period without any data traffic limit.

This new price plan differs from existing prepaid Mobile Broadband offers by being the first in Portugal to offer billing by Internet connection time, making control of data communications easier, especially for new users of information technologies. Vita Net Light provides a connection speed of up to 1.0 Mbps without any data traffic limit, with billing based solely on Internet connection time, so eliminating any worries the user may have about the volume of data transmitted.

Vodafone is also revolutionising prepaid Mobile Broadband in terms of the validity of top-ups. This is the first plan in which top-ups are valid for 6 months (180 days), making it more suitable than any other plan for users who only make occasional use of the Internet. With Vita Net Light, a customer who makes a top-up of 10 euros is able to use the corresponding hours at any time during the following 6 months.

To use the Vita Net Light service, customers simply need to purchase a Vodafone Connect Pen and Vita Net Light Card, which comes with 10 days' Mobile Broadband Internet access included, for 49.90 euros or just a Vita Net Light Card, also with 10 days' Internet access included, for just 14.90 euros. In either case there is no minimum period involved.

This new price plan complements Vodafone’s existing Mobile Broadband offer, joining a range of four postpaid plans with speeds up to 7.2 Mbps and data packs of up to 6 GB/month, and the prepaid Vita Net plan with speeds up to 2.0 Mbps.

After being the first operator in Portugal and one of the first in the world to offer a prepaid Mobile Broadband price plan, the new Vita Net Light plan demonstrates Vodafone’s continued commitment to the introduction of new Mobile Broadband services, spreading Internet access to all users and providing the best solutions for every type of use.
