Vodafone will charge more for its iPhone 5C tariffs than rival O2, despite offering less data.

For a two-year iPhone 5C 16GB deal, Vodafone will charge £79 for the handset and £33 a month for 500 MB of 3G data, 600 cross network minutes of call time and unlimited texts.

This averages out at £36.29 a month, compared to O2's version of the deal that works out at £34.08 a month and comes with an extra 250 MB monthly data allowance.

O2 will charge £49.99 for the handset and £32 a month for 750 MB of 3G data, 600 cross network minutes of call time and unlimited texts.

Vodafone's 4G-ready deal is also more expensive than O2's. While it won't charge anything for the handset to customers signing up for 4GB of 4G data, it will charge them £47 a month with unlimited calls and texts.

However, even with O2 charging customers who want 4G access £99.99 for the handset, the £42 a month tariff comes with 5GB of data – that's 1GB more than the comparative Vodafone deal – and works out on average at £46.17 a month.

Vodafone is yet to announce its iPhone 5s tariffs.

The iPhone 5C and 5S will go on sale on 20 September.
