Prepay's a winner.

I've had some pretty damn poor experiences with voda in the past & 
cannot in good conscience recommend it to anybody.
My personal preference/bias would be 2degrees - at least I feel they 
take me less for a ride, and you should be able to pick up a SIM from 
most supermarket check-outs.
I have no opinion/experience with Telecom, though I do suspect coverage 
might differ.

I suspect the key difference might be what GSM spectrum your mobile 
supports: Telecom for 850mhz and 2100mhz, voda for 900MHz & 1800 MHz 
(IINM - Cheng may be able to correct me here)

Kind regards
