Vodafone is offering its customers unlimited international calls in the coming weekend to celebrate its 21st birthday in Australia.

Postpaid and prepaid Vodafone customers will be able to call 10 overseas locations from 12.01am on Saturday 18 October, to 11.59pm on Sunday 19 October.

Calls can be made to landlines or mobiles in China, India, USA, UK, New Zealand, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Hong Kong and South Korea.

“On behalf of Vodafone, I would like to thank our customers for their loyalty. We have many customers who have been with us for the majority of our 21 years in Australia,” said chief executive Iñaki Berroeta.

“Because so many of us have friends and family living and travelling overseas, we thought this was a great way to celebrate by doing what Vodafone does best – connecting people.”

Vodafone built its first mobile tower in Australia in 1993. The telco has since invested “around $13 billion” in growing the company to Australia’s third largest mobile carrier.

The telco employs 3,500 people in Australia, and is the second largest private employer in Tasmania. The company plans on doubling its 1,000 large Tasmanian contact centre following an announcement made last year.

Vodafone Australia is part of the Vodafone Group, the second largest mobile telecommunications operator with 434 million customers worldwide.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
