Platzhirsch duel: This month, Vodafone and Telekom are offering new tariffs with which they want to win new customers. Reason enough to look at and evaluate the new tariff models in detail. Vodafone now offers the possibility to take the data volume into the next month, but the Stream with StreamOn from 19 April the option to stream without deduction of the data volume with selected services.
Vodafone: Take the data volume with you
Vodafone increases its prices: From now on, the Red tariff structure costs more for new customers every month. Although the provider raises the data volume, but this only benefits customers who book a tariff with smartphone. The company has so far doubled its volume with SIM-only tariffs. As of now, only 50 percent are added, which in turn increases the inclusive volume in the Red-S tariff (3 instead of 2 gigabytes) - the red-M (6 gigabytes) and L tariffs (12 gigabytes) do not change , Nevertheless the cost increases. For this purpose, it is now possible to transfer unused data volumes into the subsequent version. However, this is valid only in this one month and then expires ultimately - whether or not it is used. The price increases in detail: Red S costs 31.99 instead of 26.99 euros, Red M 41.99 instead of 35, 99 euros and Red L 51.99 instead of 44.99 euros a month. Added to this is a 10 percent online discount, which COMPUTER BILD has taken into account in the tariff table above. If you book a tariff with a smartphone, you only get the inclusive volume without a 50 percent surcharge. Customers with smartphone contract thus benefit. Whether the statutory EU roaming is sometimes a reason for the price increase, the company leaves open. However, Vodafone has already been offering its tariffs for quite some time.

Telekom: Unlimited streaming with StreamOn
Unlimited streaming as long as the data volume reaches: As of April 19, 2017, Deutsche Telekom offers unlimited streaming volumes for music and video services in the tariff models from Magenta L onwards. In the Magenta M tariff only the music streaming is included: However, the video quality with customers without MagentaEins advantage is only in "DVD quality" as the industry place sth. Who has a DSL and mobile contract with the Telekom and thus the MagentaEins advantage can use, streamed with HD resolution. There is also a catch: If the data volume is exhausted, the reduced speed of 32 kilobits per second also applies to StreamOn. There remains only the possibility to add additional volumes - otherwise the streaming services are practically no longer usable up to the new data volume.
StreamOn: These services are included in the package
Includes: Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube, ZDF and World News for the video streaming option and Apple Music, Juke, Amazon Music Unlimited, Napster and Radioplayer.de for music streaming. With Deezer and Spotify, Telekom is currently in talks. Since the video streaming quality is downgraded with the option "DVD quality" or HD, the customer has to actively book the StreamOn package - as already mentioned, this is completely free of charge.
Conclusion: The usage behavior decides
With StreamOn, Telekom customers get an attractive opportunity to retrieve unlimited videos and music from the road. If you have a changing surfing habit and travel a little on the road, the Vodafone tariffs could be more attractive: with the option to take data volumes into the follow-on volume, the volume can be padded.
