Communities.connected plans are around 50 per cent off standard business tariff prices
Vodafone has today announced that it is launching its communities.connected initiative which will give private and public sector organisations an easy, fast, and cost-effective way to directly provide connectivity to their most vulnerable customers.
The plans have been designed to support schools, further education colleges, universities, local authorities, and charities.
The plans mean they can provide connectivity to the individuals and families who are struggling to access internet connectivity at home, missing out on education, employment prospects, and access to healthcare.
The communities.connected plans are available at a reduced price, starting from £15 per month for a SIM-only unlimited data contract.
Customers can also buy a six and 12-month package, with unlimited data and a free dongle or Mi-Fi device for £100 and £180 respectively.
Vodafone UK business director Anne Sheehan said: “We have worked hard throughout the pandemic to connect the most vulnerable and enable children to connect to online learning and were delighted with the response to our schools.connected programme.
“We know many of our customers want sustainable and affordable connectivity solutions to enable them to provide connectivity to their most vulnerable customers. I hope communities.connected meet this need.”
