Anyone who has lost their job due to coronavirus can get a tariff with Vodafone which includes unlimited 5G data, calls and texts for £ 10 per month, the operator said.
The pandemic has increased the role of mobile and broadband in society, with most people increasingly dependent on their connection for work, entertainment and communication.
Like its competitors, Vodafone has put in place several measures to ensure that customers stay connected during the pandemic. These include additional network capacity and commitments not to disconnect anyone suffering from economic hardship.

The £ 10 tariff is part of that commitment, with Vodafone saying there should be no need to compromise on essentials if a person’s work situation is uncertain.
“We want to bring financial help to those who need it most at this incredibly difficult time,” said Nick Jeffery, CEO of Vodafone UK. “And we want to make sure these people stay connected, because we know how vital it is – vital for finding a new job and vital for good mental health.
“If you can’t afford your current plan, or if you know someone who is struggling, we can help. “
Pricing is available through Vodafone’s Voxi brand. Voxi was created to provide no-frills mobile tariffs to those under 25 powered by the same network infrastructure.
The VOXI “Just For Now” rate is available to anyone of any age and there is no credit check or contract to sign. Applicants simply need to send a picture of the relevant documents to prove that they are applying for Jobseeker’s Allowance, Job and Support Allowance or Universal Employment Based Credit. Verification is instant and the service is valid for up to six months.
Vodafone has extended a free upgrade offer to unlimited data for NHS workers until January 31, 2021.
