Vodafone appointed as new mobile phone services provider

Vodafone has been appointed as the University’s new partner for mobile phone services.

The University has more than 1,300 actively used devices currently on the EE network, ranging from mobile phones and tablets to 3G dongles. Over the next few months Computing Services and Vodafone will support staff through the steps involved in moving to the new service. 

Members of staff who have a University mobile or tablet on EE will receive an email inviting them to attend a drop-in session where their mobile device will be unlocked so that it is no longer tied to the EE network. They will also be given a Vodafone SIM and allocated a date when their current mobile phone number will transfer to the Vodafone service.

John Cartwright, Director of Computing Services, said: “We are looking forward to developing our partnership with Vodafone and helping staff to make the most of this new service.

“We will move away from hundreds of invoices for individual mobile lines to one bill which will be paid centrally then recharged to departments.

“Vodafone’s tariff structure will allow us to share a pool of data across our University mobile users and bring efficiencies in managing the administration of our mobile devices.” 

All members of University staff can benefit from the Vodafone employee advantage scheme which offers up to 20% off standard price plans for individuals plus five friends or family members.
