The new Red Bull Mobile service will share Vodafone's enhanced network infrastructure, giving customers access to the new 850MHz radio frequency. Red Bull will add a range of complementary services to its basic phone connections, with plans to stream Red Bull TV to customers and exclusive tickets to Red Bull-sponsored sporting events. Red Bull will also sell its own branded mobile phone handsets.

Red Bull joins a short list of companies reselling Vodafone network access alongside Exetel, Savvytel, Lebara Mobile and Crazy John's, which itself is a subsidiary of Vodafone Hutchinson Australia (VHA).
