Vodacom is offering users free access to its new HSDPA 3.6 broadband service, across the 3G HSDPA network, until 30 April 2008. 

Dot Field, chief communications officer at the Vodacom Group, says customers who have an HSDPA 3.6 capable terminal or device – such as a Vodafone Mobile Connect USB Modem, a Vodafone Mobile Connect Express Card or an Embedded HSDPA 3.6 laptop – will enjoy the free activation of HSDPA 3.6 as an addition to their existing data tariff package and will be able to access this service country-wide where 3G HSDPA coverage is available.
From 1 May 2008, Vodacom’s HSDPA 3.6 service will be offered to Contract, Top Up and Prepaid customers as a Value Added Service (VAS) at R49.00 per month, in addition to the current data charge levied.
