NHS staff are having to suffer quite a bit at the moment. There’s concern over a lack of protective equipment, COVID-19 testing, and their own already-long hours and stress. This has led Vodafone to launch an unlimited data initiative for NHS staff.
Their existing 30 day unlimited data plan will now switch to a more proactive offering, automatically upgrading around 125,000 Vodafone customers who have personal pay monthly contracts and are registered in Vodafone systems as working for the NHS.
This is in addition to the Vodafone announcement last week, where the network gave unlimited mobile data to 500,000 pay monthly customers who were flagged as vulnerable.
Customers benefiting from this will receive a text from April 6th. The offer is designed to give worry-free data usage to staff working for the NHS who may not have time to take advantage of other offers.
Vodafone UK Chief Executive Officer Nick Jeffery told us..
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.
