Vodafone India is unstoppable at the moment as the country’s second-largest telecom operator has come up with a new entry-level postpaid plan of Rs 299, dubbed as Vodafone RED Basic. This plan is priced at Rs 299 and offers benefits almost in-line with the Jio’s postpaid plan of Rs 199. Unlike other Vodafone RED postpaid plans such as the Rs 399 or Rs 499, the RED Basic plan of Rs 299 just offers one year of free Vodafone Play subscription, and it won’t give any additional benefits such as Amazon Prime subscription or Netflix subscription. As the name of the plan (RED Basic) itself suggests, it’s aimed at standard users who don’t consume much of data and content on their smartphone. Here’s how the new postpaid plan from Vodafone competes with the Jio’s postpaid plan of Rs 199.
Unlimited Voice Calling
The RED Basic postpaid plan from Vodafone offers unlimited local, STD and national roaming calls for the entire rental period. Having said that, the best part of this postpaid plan is the voice calls are unlimited, and there’s no limit for the voice calls as Vodafone has set for prepaid users. For the unaware, Vodafone is limiting the voice calls on its prepaid network at 250 minutes per day and 1000 minutes per week.
20GB Data With Carry Forward Option
Moving onto other benefits, the RED Basic plan provides a user with 20GB of data along with carry-forward option. That said, a user can carry forward up to a maximum of 50GB data under this plan.
100 Local+STD SMS Benefit
It also gives 100 SMSes and do make a note that the SMS benefit is not applicable to numbers in other circles. Other Vodafone plans of Rs 399 and Rs 499 does offer SMS benefits even on national roaming. The RED Basic postpaid plan does not offer any voice calling minutes to international roaming.
Vodafone Play Subscription
As mentioned above, other benefits such as free Amazon Prime subscription, Netflix subscription, RED Hot Deals, Mobile Shield-Device Protection and Bill Guarantee are not applicable to this Vodafone postpaid plan.
