Vodafone launches new £10 tariff for people on Universal Credit

Vodafone has launched a new plan to help people who have become unemployed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic stay connected.

The plan will give people unlimited mobile data, minutes and texts for just £10 a month, for up to six months, with no fuss, no need for a credit check, and no contract to sign.

With unemployment predicted to reach one million by the end of 2020, the new plan is designed to help reduce monthly outgoings for those who are most financially vulnerable.

The plan, which will be available on Vodafone’s VOXI brand, is open to anyone (not just the under 25s) currently claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance, Employment and Support Allowance or employment based Universal Credit.

Customers on the new unlimited plan will enjoy the same benefits that come with being a VOXI customer, including Vodafone’s network and 5G. The plan gives customers a 70% discount, as it would usually cost £35 a month.

Nick Jeffery, CEO, Vodafone UK, said: “We want to provide financial relief to those people most in need at this incredibly difficult time. And we want to make sure those people keep connected, because we know how vital that is – vital to finding new work, and vital to good mental health.

“If you can’t afford your current plan, or you know someone who is struggling, we can help.”

As well as introducing the new plan for job seekers, Vodafone has also extended the free unlimited data it made available for NHS workers earlier in the year until 31 January 2021, and earlier this year Vodafone offered business customers six months free broadband to help reduce their monthly outgoings during lockdown.
