Vodafone Always Connected

We know you love to be online, especially at home. That’s why if you have your home broadband with Vodafone and one of our latest mobile plans, we’re making sure you and your family stay connected
Our ‘Always Connected’ promise

Our ‘Always Connected’ promise

If your home broadband stops working and we can’t fix it straight away, we’ll use NZ’s leading mobile network to give you enough mobile data so everyone in your house stays connected while we get it sorted. We call it our ‘Always Connected’ promise.

The data can be applied for up to four eligible Vodafone consumer mobiles in your household. And, by setting up Wi-Fi hotspots from these mobiles, you can instantly connect all other devices in your home.
