Before Christmas, Vodafone surveyed 10,000 customers regarding a move to simplify its prepaid services to a per-megabyte charging structure. According to Vodafone, the feedback received suggested that customers preferred simplicity, but had concerns over the megabyte pricing.

Yesterday, Vodafone announced that it would proceed with the simplified pricing system, but on a per-kilobyte basis.

From February this year, the minimum data session will be 1KB for all prepaid plans, as per the table below.
