Is unlimited data really unlimited?
Vodafone X does not have any fair usage policy data limits while using your plan at home in Ireland, so you’ll have truly unlimited data, maximum speed 10Mbps.
You can also take your plan abroad at no extra cost with a fair use roaming data threshold of 30GB while roaming in the EEA. For more information on roaming, visit our roaming information page.
I am already a Vodafone customer, can I change my plan to Vodafone X?
If you're a Vodafone Pay As You Go customer, the easiest way to change your top up offer to Vodafone X is to log into your My Vodafone app and select Vodafone X. You can also opt in by texting ‘UNLIMITED’ to 50222.
Once you change your top up offer, you will need to top up by €20 in one go to activate your top up offer. If you top up before your current allowances have expired, your Vodafone X top up offer will activate and allowances will reset.

Mobile data speed explained
Our Vodafone X top up offer is available with maximum data speeds of 10 Mbps.
Speed refers to how fast your mobile data connection is. We measure it in Mbps (megabits per second) – the higher the Mbps, the faster the speed of your data connection on your device.
Not everyone uses their phone in the same way. Our Vodafone X top up offer is built to match how you use yours.
10 Mbps is perfect for:
- Browsing the internet - general surfing on the internet requires no more than 1 Mbps. Therefore, the data speed limit of 10 Mbps, will allow you to carry out your browse comfortably
- Checking social media - Facebook, including chat recommends 0.032 Mbps. Therefore, the data speed limit of 10 Mbps will allow you to enjoy unlimited browsing on Facebook
- Messages and emails
- Music streaming (e.g. Spotify high quality) - Spotify recommends 0.36 Mbps to stream high quality music. Therefore, the data speed limit of 10 Mbps will allow you to enjoy unlimited music on Spotify
- Sending and receiving images, audio and video files
- Making and receiving HD quality video calls
- Streaming HD quality TV shows and movies (Netflix recommends 5 Mbps for HD quality)
- Most single player, online games
- Downloading and updating apps on-the-go

How much does the offer cost / how does it work?
When you top up by €20 or more in one transaction, €20 will be debited from your credit and the offer will activate. This €20 charge will apply each time you top up by €20 or more in one transaction.
If you need to top up again during your 4 weeks offer period, it is recommended that you top up by less than the minimum amount so that you do not activate a new offer period of four weeks.
What happens if I don’t top up?
If you do not top up by €20 in one go, you will not receive the top up offer allowances for Vodafone X, which include unlimited data, unlimited weekend calls, unlimited texts and 100 minutes. You will be charged our Advantage Plus rates.
