Correct, I meant $32 for 1.5GB of data (@ Flexidata costs)

 

The point is obviously that Vodafone chages you and me 100 time the cost of data in NZ to roam in Japan.

 

get that, one hundred times the cost in NZ, not a bad markup if you can get it.


Maybe, Maybe not. perhaps vodafone charging the customer no more then what they incur. Vodafone may not be making any money from it.

You think that. 

OTOH perhaps they haven't bothered making a deal in Japan, cause they are quite happy to fleece their customers.

They now include $5 roaming to Japan.

Thanks @Christopher

 

Roaming rates are based on agreements with overseas carriers, hence why some are so expensive.(We recently discontinued Maritime data roaming due to exhorbitant costs - $25 per MB)

 

Vodafone Roaming Services are constantly trying to negotiate the best deals for our customers, which is why fortunately, we've been able to heavily improve roaming rates today for many more countries with Daily Roaming. 

 

We hope you enjoy the simplicity and flexibility of Daily Roaming in over 70 countries now.
