Vodafone expands 4G coverage across regional Queensland

Vodafone Australia, alongside the Federal Member for Maranoa David Littleproud, has switched on a new mobile site at Kumbia near Kingaroy, reports Telecompaper on July 11, 2017. Another site at nearby Boyneside will follow in coming months. Both of these sites have been completed as part of the Federal Government’s Mobile Black Spot Program. These new 4G sites will see voice and data coverage provided to an additional 220 square kilometers, including 50 kilometers along roads in the area including the Bunya Highway, Kearneys Road and Kumbia-Brooklands Road.

To encourage people in Kumbia and Boyneside to trial its network, Vodafone is offering new customers a 30-day Network Satisfaction Guarantee. Under this offer, if a new postpaid customer is not satisfied with Vodafone’s network within the first 30 days, they can cancel their contract. Vodafone will also refund any monthly access fees and monthly handset installments paid by the customer as long as the equipment and device are returned to a Vodafone store within 10 days of making the claim. Customers still pay for any non-standard plan inclusions. The 30 Day Network Satisfaction Guarantee is also available for business customers with up to 9 connections.

In conjunction with the revamped 30-day Network Satisfaction Guarantee, Vodafone is also offering unlimited data for the first month to new customers who sign up to a selected 12 or 24 month phone plan to use within Australia.
