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

Can I use my plan while travelling in Europe?

Yes you can use your plan while traveling in Europe as if you were at home.

You will be able to browse at the maximum speeds as at home, subject to the service available in the visited country.

What is included when I roam on Vodafone X?

Vodafone X customers roam in Europe at no extra cost. Use data, calls and texts like you would at home. You will be able to browse at the maximum speeds as at home, subject to the service available in the visited country. Use of the allowance when roaming in Europe is intended for periodic travel only.

Outside Europe in a RED Roaming country, you get unlimited calls & texts home and within the visited country and 200MB of data a day. A daily access fee will apply following the first roaming mobile event of the day, (making or receiving a call, sending a text, using mobile internet), and expires at midnight Irish time.

Text ‘Red’ to 50020 to opt in. Default roaming option for new Pay as you go customers traveling outside the EU is RED Roaming. To opt out text ‘Stop Red’ to 50020.

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.

{{feedbackMessage}}

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.
