Vodafone Germany has announced a suite of new prepaid data plans targeted at notebook and tablet users. The WebSessions S package costs €14.99 and offers 1 GB of data; the WebSessions M costs €24.99 and offers 3 GB; and the WebSessions L is priced at €34.99 for 5 GB of data. Subscribers need not commit for more than 30 days at a time.
We like these plans, in particular because of the flexibility the prepaid aspect affords. Furthermore, Vodafone is offering the prepaid option to a broad spectrum of data-only consumers, effectively hitting different components of this growing market segment. The low-end plan should prove particularly attractive to users who don’t travel much. And compared to other packages we’ve seen, the pricing is competitive at all levels. In the current uncertain economic climate, many subscribers – even those who consider themselves “road warriors,” would prefer not to be locked into long-term contracts. In summary, Vodafone Germany has succeeded in creating a suite of flexible and attractively priced data-only plans. We think it’s a good move.
