New prepaid customers will be able to join Vodafone and access the 4G speeds from mid-November.

Vodafone had initially rolled out 4G access only to existing customers on post-paid plans back in June, with new post-paid customers getting access one month later.

In a media statement, Vodafone chief marketing officer Kim Clarke said:

We’re rewarding our existing prepaid customers by transitioning them to our super-fast wide-band 4G network first. Some have been with Vodafone for many years, and we want to ensure their move is a smooth one.

We also look forward to welcoming new prepaid customers to Vodafone’s super-fast 4G network next month. Word of mouth is spreading fast, and we know many people are keen to try it out.

Vodafone has also changed its AU$40 prepaid plan to increase the data allowance and call credit. The adjusted plan now has 1GB of data (up from 750MB) and AU$750 of calls, along with unlimited texts.

Customers, both current and prospective, can check whether they're located with 4G coverage via Vodafone's website.
