Vodafone announced in September that it would start iPhone sales in the UK in early 2010. Two weeks into the new year is pretty early.

The BBC says Vodafone will start its UK iPhone sales January 14, 2010.

Vodafone UK CEO Guy Laurence says his company has been prepping its network for the added demand the iPhone will bring for over a year.

The new player's prices seem to be in line with rivals O2 and Orange. Vodafone UK's lowest plan is £30 a month for 24 months, with additional charges for iPhones ranging from £59 for an 8GB iPhone 3G to £239 for a 32GB iPhone 3GS. Vodafone will also offer a £35 a month/24 month contract that will include an 8GB iPhone 3G at no additional cost.

Data usage for both business and consumer contracts will be capped at 1GB a month. The company will also offer tethering at launch with plans starting at £5 a month.
