Vodaphone Business has introduced new pricing for its small business plans. Business customers can purchase basic plans or add features as the business grows.
For £25 per month, sole traders who are self-employed can get 500 MB of data, 250 UK texts and 300 minutes of calls, plus 2 GB of data over the BT Openzone Wi-Fi hotspot network and 3000 free minutes on calls to other Vodaphone customers.
The sole trader may also select the One Net Express Service for an additional £10 per month. This service provides voicemail and another 3000 minutes for calls, as well as a landline number (which the customer can choose) that forwards calls to the customer’s cell phone.
Companies with more than one user can purchase the same plan starting at £30 per month for each “lead” user and £20 per month for each “sharer.” The plan includes another 200 minutes of calling within the UK. Additional minutes (up to 10,000 minutes for £370 per month) may be purchased. The optional One Net Express Service is also available at an additional £20 per month for the “lead” and £2.50 per month for each “sharer.”
Microsoft Office 365 is also available to companies with more than one user for £4 per month per user. The Office 365 suite includes SharePoint, an online site where customers can share documents and collaborate, a version of Outlook that is browser-based, and a copy of Lync 2010, which provides the capability to have online meetings, video calls and instant messaging.
All plans require a 24-month contract.
