For months, we've been able to see how some companies were trying to simplify their rate catalog with the goal of not pushing the user to search for a foolish fare and among so many offers that He does not know which one to choose. A strategy that has also been taken Vodafone Yu and in which he decided delete all your packages or your contractual rates. A decision that would have been made following the recent launch of its optical fiber offer with which it wishes to attract the attention of many users, even if, because of its characteristics and its price, I do not know if it will be realized because there is a lot of competition and offers in this respect.
However, considering that many are looking for a contract with which to have a bonus of minutes to call and gigas to navigate without extra worry, it is shocking that Vodafone Yu has decided delete all your contract plans focus on your fiber offer and your prepaid rates. Something other operators do exactly the opposite, ending prepaid options and offering contracts, many of them without permanence.
Yet, Vodafone Yu seems to be clear and as can be seen in his official site, its offer is based on prepaid options and Fiber Yuser. In addition, the new virtual operator strategy has also affected its rates of prepaidsince he's deleted one of your plans and made some modifications to other options in this modality.
As a result, Vodafone Yu's options are kept to a minimum, as can be seen on its website. It has two options to rent a prepaid line and a fiber service for 30.99 euros per month offering a connection. FTTH at a speed of 600 Mbps and it also goes up to 42.99 euros after the first year. What do you think of the new business strategy?

As of June 30, 2019, Vodafone had 11.3 million mobile phone lines, which means lost 158,000 customers in those three months. Here again, the strong commercial aggressiveness, the process of sanitation and the disconnection of low value lines are at the origin of the situation.
The launch of the new Vodafone Rates With unlimited data, they helped to improve the trend. Vodafone achieved positive numbers after losing several months of customers in the latest mobile portabilities of the residential contract segment. The operator expects the trend to continue. Vodafone closed the month of June with a residential balance of 4,000 mobile phone contract lines.
At the end of these results, the new tariffs are already present in more than 750,000 lines (figure which reached 1 million lines in July). A strong point is that 500,000 correspond to customers with unlimited data plans. In the fiber sector, Vodafone closed the quarter with 2.9 million customers, 89,000 more than a year ago.
In terms of coverage, Vodafone recalls the agreement signed with Orange. Under this contract and in the previous signed, in addition to its own deployment, Vodafone is not limited to fiber with 23 million real estate units in Spain.
Finally, we must talk about television, a segment on which Vodafone has 1.29 million television subscribers, 24,000 fewer than the previous quarter. The change in the modalities has been the cause of this situation, although in the future you expect it to be the only operator again to integrate into the same user experience. HBO, Netflix and Amazon Prime video among other things on his television platform.
