VHA extend free calls across merged network

Vodafone-3 capability turned on.

Vodafone Hutchison Australia (VHA) has confirmed that it will allow customers on both of its respective networks to call each other for free.

Confirming rumours raised on the Whirlpool forums more than a week ago, a spokesman for the telco said it had turned on the ability for Vodafone customers to call users of the 3 Mobile network for free.

"The free calls offer for Vodafone customers to 3 customers is currently rolling out and the free calls offer for 3 customers to Vodafone will launch by the end of July," the spokesman said.

The offer would only be made available to postpaid customers on a minimum $29 cap. They also had to have joined the plan no earlier than March 11, 2010.

"Vodafone customers who have signed up to a new postpaid cap since March 11 will see the free calls itemised on their bills as ‘V23’, so they can spot just how many free calls they are making," the spokesman said.

"When 3’s new postpaid customers get free standard voice calls in Australia to Vodafone by the end of July they will appear as ‘32V’."

Previously, customers were limited to calling Vodafone-Vodafone or 3-to-3 for free.
