â€œItâ€™s been 2 years being on Vodafone X and considering the fact that I have used other network services, if youâ€™re a student there is no better deal, itâ€™s just exquisite, you get to do Facebook, Snapchatting all on a low budget. You donâ€™t need to have bunch credit before browsing, I go for the GHâ‚µ15.00 bundle but with as little as you have you can still browse. What else would you want if not Vodafone X,â€ he submitted.
Bearing a castle themed setting, there was a blend of techno and alien feel all rolled in one night.
