5 Must-Know Things About the Vodafone RED 1299 Plan

By June 27th, 2017 AT 5:18 PM

Vodafone is in the news recently for making an impossible thing happen. The company is offering premium Netflix subscription for one year with some of its postpaid plans, and it’s a brilliant offer. Earlier this year, major operators such as Bharti Airtel, Vodafone India have partnered with Netflix to offer content from the global video provider.


However, the offer is limited to only a few plans and one among them is the Vodafone RED 1299 plan, which is kind of the best postpaid plan Vodafone offering right now. Let’s take a look at what the Vodafone RED 1299 postpaid plan offers.

Offers Up to One-Year Netflix Premium Subscription

As said earlier, the Vodafone RED 1299 plan is one among the postpaid plans of Vodafone which offers the Netflix subscription. The RED 1299 plan gives up to one-year premium Netflix subscription. Customers can avail the membership by sending an SMS as ‘NETFLIX’ to 121.

20GB of Free Data

The RED 1299 postpaid plan gives an insane 20GB data per billing cycle. In contrast, Airtel is offering just 17GB with its Rs. 1199 plan. This data offering from Vodafone is better than any other operator in the market right now in the postpaid segment.

30GB Welcome Data

Alongside the 20GB free data, the RED 1299 plan also gives 30GB free welcome data for new users. The 30GB data will be divided into three months as 10GB data per month, same as how Airtel is offering right now with its postpaid plans above Rs. 499.

Unlimited Local and National Calls

On par with other telecom operators, Vodafone is also providing unlimited voice calls including unlimited incoming and outgoing roaming calls.

100 SMS Per Month

This is a major letdown with all the Vodafone postpaid plans as it offers just 100 SMS per month, whereas other operators are providing 3000 SMS per month, which dubs to 100 SMS per day. Vodafone should address this issue and provide more SMS per month.

Hello, a small correction. Red 1299 tariff gives 2 months of Netflix subscription and not 12 months. Please rectify your blog

Yes that’s correct . I checked it as well . It’s only for 2 months. This should be corrected here.
