‘VOXI For Now’ first launched in November 2020 to help those who had become unemployed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic
Vodafone has boosted its ‘VOXI for now’ tariff to help those struggling financially to stay connected.
Those receiving benefits can access the plan which provides unlimited 5G data, calls and texts for only £10 a month and can be paused or cancelled at any time.
This plan would typically cost £35 per month and is the only mobile social tariff in the market.
Moneyhub will provide VOXI with an eligibility checking service to give quick and easy access to the tariff, and customers will be asked to give Moneyhub consent to check their banking data.
‘VOXI for now’ customers will enjoy the same benefits that come with being a VOXI customer such as 5G on Vodafone’s network.
Digital Secretary Nadine Dorries said: “At a time when family budgets are under pressure from global price rises it is brilliant to see Vodafone offering support for those struggling the most.
“We’ve successfully worked with mobile and broadband companies to broker a range of social tariffs and this new offer means five million people are now able to make savings on their mobile phone bill.”
Vodafone UK consumer director Max Taylor added: “By enhancing VOXI for Now and extending it to anyone experiencing financial hardship, we hope to keep as many people as possible connected, both to family and friends, as well as to vital online services.
“If you can’t afford your current plan, or you know someone who is struggling, we can help.”
