Why can Vodaphone charge $5 for international day pass, and Telstra $10?

Just wanted to know why Telstra charges $10 for international day pass that Vodaphone charges $5 for?
I am going to the US on Tuesday. My travel companion is with Vodaphone and only has to pay $5 a day for the same (calls/data/country). I have to pay $10 a day because I am with Telstra. I don't understand why Telstra is double the price. Can someone please explain this to me?

Vodafone have subsidiaries all around the world. They can use their own backbone to transmit data and calls at a greatly reduced cost.
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
