It’s been a pretty dark time for Vodafone over the last few years, the network lost a steady stream of customers over consecutive years, over frustrations experienced with their network coverage. But after investing Billions of dollars over the last four years into their existing 3G and burgeoning 4G network, Vodafones outlook is looking a lot rosier. The outflow of customers appears to be stemmed, and they can proudly claim over 1 million customers are now enjoying the fastest 4G network in Australia. Now Vodafone is looking to invite some of their former customers back to the network and to prove how good it is they’re offering trials on their network with the simple purchase of a $2 SIM card.
Customers purchasing a $2 SIM card from Coles supermarkets and activate it from now until the 13th of May will receive $5 of flexible credit and 50MB of data which can be used to try the network out over a 2 day period.
Speaking to a number of customers who left Vodafone at the peak of the issues, many have said that they had no issues with the carrier beyond their inability to use the network they were paying for. When told of this promotion, the majority were very interested in acquiring a SIM card to try out the coverage with a view to returning to the carrier.
Vodafone is still facing an uphill battle convincing some customers that they have changed, but they are making headway. The first step in getting people to come back is simply getting them to try the network that failed them previously and see the improvements that have been made. With more carriers in the market, there is obviously going to be more competition for business, so it’s in all of our best interests to see a successful third major Australian mobile carrier. If you’re interested to try the Vodafone network out, head into Coles and pick up a $2 pre-paid SIM card now.
