Vodafone has upped the data caps on its Ideal and Ultimate home phone and broadband packages by 20 gigabytes, piling further pressure on acquisition target TelstraClear to improve its data caps.

Vodafone said it would raise the cap on its Ideal plan from 20Gb to 40Gb and on its Ultimate plan from 60Gb to 80Gb from today, at no extra charge. 

Moves by other major internet providers, including Telecom, have set 40Gb as something of a standard for home broadband allowances but TelstraClear still has mainstream plans with 20Gb caps.

TelstraClear said last week that it was reviewing its data caps and promised consumers would not lose out while a hiatus hangs over the firm's future ownership.

There are rumours Vodafone may confirm its acquisition of TelstraClear as early as next month, after TelstraClear confirmed last month that discussions were taking place between the firms.
