Vodafone UK to begin iPhone sales Jan. 14

Vodafone in the U.K. has announced that it will begin selling the iPhone on January 14, 2010. According to the BBC News, tariffs will be available from £30 (roughly $48) for 24 months, while the phones will run from £59 (~$95) for an 8GB iPhone 3G to £239 (~$385) for a 32GB iPhone 3GS. Both business and personal contracts will be subject to a 1GB per month “fair use” data limit, and also include unlimited Wi-Fi use. Tethering will also be offered as an option, starting at £5 (~$8) for 500MB of bandwidth. Vodafone has been working for over a year to prepare its network for the iPhone launch, according to Guy Laurence, CEO of Vodafone U.K.

None of these new providers in the UK are offering anything different. Orange launched the iPhone last month and Vodafone next month. Their pricing is almost the same as that of O2. There has been no competition on tariffs and at least the market leader O2 offers unlimited data downloads to the phone! The iPhone is all about data transfer on the move, so why would you switch to a provider that limits this to 750mb or 1Gb a month!!
Since most people who wanted to buy the 3GS did so in the summer, these companies may be disappointed with the sale volumes going forward. It might be worth waiting a few months for the upgraded phone in the summer and sticking with O2 till then.
