Vodafone offer: With Rs 799 data plan, telco looks to beat Reliance Jio; check benefits
Vodafone’s Rs 549 prepaid recharge plan is valid for 28 days
Even as the competition among the telecom players over the market share is intensifying, high-speed data packs are getting cheaper by every passing day. In a bid to stay ahead to beat Reliance Jio , incumbent telcos are slowly catching up, especially Vodafone India and Bharti Airtel.
According to a report, Vodafone will soon offer two prepaid tariff plans of Rs 799 and Rs 549, matching the benefits of Jio’s plans, offering 4.5GB data per day with the Rs 799 plan and 3.5GB data per day with the Rs 549 plan, a little 0.5GB less when compared to Jio’s Rs 799 and Rs 509 tariff plans.
Both these tariff plans will go live across Vodafone’s popular circles in the coming days, but as of this writing, the plans were not yet launched, according to Telecom Talk.
Both the plans will offer other benefits such as unlimited voice calls and SMS benefits on a daily basis for the entire validity period.
Vodafone Rs 799 Prepaid Plan
Vodafone’s prepaid pack of Rs 799 is thought to be designed to take on Reliance Jio’s Rs 799 pack, which offers a whopping 5GB data per day. Vodafone’s upcoming plan will provide 4.5GB data per day for a period of 28 days for 28 days.
The plan also offers unlimited local/STD and roaming calls across the country and users will even get 100 SMS free per day.
Vodafone Rs 549 Prepaid Plan
Vodafone’s prepaid recharge plan priced at Rs 549 offers 98GB of 4G high-speed data, with a daily limit of 3.5GB data per day.
This prepaid recharge plan also offers unlimited local, STD and roaming voice calls. There’s provision for 100 free texts per day.
Vodafone’s Rs 549 prepaid recharge plan is valid for 28 days.
Jio’s prepaid recharge priced at Rs 509 offers 112GB of 4G high-speed internet data for a period of 28 days, the report said.
The daily data cap is set at 4GB per day and included in the plan is unlimited local, STD and roaming voice calling feature.
There are 100 free SMSes as well along with a subscription to host of Jio apps bundled in the plan.
Jio’s another plan meant for users with higher data usage is Rs 799 plan. This comes with a total of 140GB for a validity period of 28 days, which translates to 5GB daily data. There’s once again unlimited local, STD and roaming calls along with 100 free texts. As always you get a free subscription to Jio apps like Jio Music, JioCinema and JioTV, the report said.
Vodafone is also offering a free subscription to Vodafone Play to all the customers, but there’s one massive letdown with entire Vodafone’s combo plans, and it’s the voice calling FUP.
