If you’re going on holidays this Christmas, chances are your mobile phone is travelling with you.  And why would we leave our mobile phone, it’s the next most important thing after food and water, right?

But then there’s the issue of costs when using your mobile phone overseas.  Roaming as they call it is a mobile phone technology service that enables you to use your phone with the same SIM on a different network overseas that has a service agreement with the mobile service provider of your SIM.

For those using Bmobile-Vodafone SIM, there’s great news for you if you’re travelling down south – Bmobile-Vodafone has launched a roaming service with Vodafone Australia.

The roaming service allows prepaid customers travelling down south to stay connected to home.

According to the company, more than 200,000 people departed the country on short trips in the past 12 months, with nearly 50 percent visiting Australia.  These statistics doesn’t come as a surprise as Australia appears to be the most popular holiday destination for Papua New Guineans any time throughout the year.

Bmobile-Vodafone has on its website the applicable rates:

In comparison to the rates Digicel PNG charges for the same or similar service, you might like to think twice about using Digicel PNG.  It only cost about K10 for a Bmobile-Vodafone SIM and that could make a whole lot of difference and save you more.  In any event, here it is:
