It is all the more gratifying that Vodafone With SIMon mobile has now launched a new brand that advertises with unbeatable conditions: For only 8,99 Euro per month you can send unlimited SMS and make calls and have 8 GB LTE data volume with up to 50 MBit/s available (see offer at SIMon). The whole thing can also be canceled on a monthly basis, so if a better offer comes up, you can opt out again right away.
