A shared business

Former Vodafone CEO Bill Morrow last year told TechRadar that the telco was working on data sharing for customers, so while the company has introduced data sharing for small to medium businesses, it is likely it will be introduced to other customers later on as well..

Besides data sharing, like it's Red plans, these business plans also include unlimited national standard calls and SMS, but also Vodafone's $5 a day Roam Like Home cap in up to 46 countries, which the telco had introduced mid last year.

Vodafone also has monthly data packs for businesses as well, starting from 2GB for $20 up to 100GB for $500.
