Vodafone has offered the unlimited data due to the coronavirus crisis
Vodafone has confirmed that it is extending its 30-day free access to unlimited mobile data for NHS staff.
To ensure the process is simple the operator has said it will proactively upgrade customers who have pay monthly contracts and are registered in its systems as working for the NHS.
These NHS customers will receive a text message on April 6, which will inform them of this upgrade.
Vodafone launched the 30 day offer to half a million of its pay monthly customers last Friday (March 27), and are encouraging any NHS staff or vulnerable customers on pay monthly deals they can make the most of this offer via VeryMe through the My Vodafone app.
The extension of the 30-day free access offer is part of Vodafone’s plans to keep its customer connected during the coronavirus crisis, with the offer designed to provide NHS workers with “worry-free data usage.”
Vodafone UK Chief Executive Officer Nick Jeffery said: “Last week we announced we were giving 30-days of unlimited free data to our most vulnerable customers and the first 500,000 customers to sign up.
“We said we would be monitoring the feasibility of opening this up to even more customers and if we could give more capacity, we would. So today, we are proactively upgrading all private customers who are registered with us as working for the NHS to this 30-day unlimited free data offer.”
