Data roaming prices cut

4:22 pm on 20 May 2011

Vodafone has cut data roaming prices to Australia following a decision by the New Zealand and Australian governments to formally investigate mobile charges.

New Zealand and Australia launched a full market investigation into trans Tasman roaming in April.

If it finds the market is not competitive, they may intervene to set prices.

Vodafone has halved the price of data roaming for its New Zealand customers heading to Australia to $1 per megabyte.
