Mobile Phones

The University of Otago has a contract with Vodafone for their 'All of Government' Telecommunications as a Service (TaaS) Plan for purchase and supply of mobile devices, and mobile device services.

This contract has a single rate for University staff which includes unlimited calls and texts from within New Zealand and New Zealand to Australia. This rate excludes MMS (pxts), 0900 and pay-for-services.

Your monthly data is included in the plan at no extra charge. Your allocation is based on your previous use. There will be an annual 10% increase in your data cap. If you exceed your quota, ITS will be in touch to discuss your data needs.

There is now no requirement to reimburse the University for your personal calls or texts to New Zealand and Australian standard numbers. This excludes 0900, audio conferencing, and calls and pay-for-services.
