Long gone are the days when postpaid plans used to feel costly and were only limited to businesspersons. The prepaid data war has slowly started showing its effect even in the postpaid segment. As such, telcos have launched attractive postpaid plans to lure in the customers. Also, although the postpaid subscribers are less in number, the revenue from postpaid plans makes up a big chunk of the telcos’ earning. Bharti Airtel has launched its Infinity postpaid plans, whereas Vodafone India has launched the RED Postpaid plans offering appealing benefits. Below we have compared the postpaid plans across three price points to see which one provides better benefits.
Rs 399 Postpaid Plan: Airtel vs Vodafone
Vodafone offers 40GB 4G data to its subscribers in this price point along with 200GB of data rollover facility. There are also unlimited calling benefits included in this plan. The plan also comes with complimentary Amazon Prime membership. The Airtel Rs 399 Infinity plan offers 20GB data to the subscriber along with data rollover of 500GB. Unlike the Vodafone plan, the Airtel plan doesn’t come with Amazon Prime membership, but it does offer free access to Wynk music.
Rs 499 Postpaid Plan: Airtel vs Vodafone
The competition gets equated in this price as both the telcos offer the same 75GB data benefit to the subscribers. However, the Airtel plan provides 500GB data rollover while Vodafone provides only 200GB max data rollover facility in its plan. Speaking of add-ons, both the plans provide the free Amazon Prime membership. Combined with the unlimited calling as well as SMS benefits, there is no clear winner between the two in the Rs 499 price category.
Airtel Rs 799 Plan vs Vodafone Rs 999 plan
The Airtel plan of Rs 799 offers 100GB data to the subscribers similar to the Rs 999 plan by Vodafone. The data rollover capex remains the same for Vodafone at 200GB and 500GB for Airtel. However, the thing to note here is that although the Vodafone plan costs Rs 200 more, the add-on benefit of two month Netflix subscription which is worth Rs 1000 seems like the cherry on top of this plan. There is also the usual calling and SMS benefits in both the plans.
The Airtel and Vodafone plan both come with unlimited calling and 100SMS per day. All Vodafone RED plans offer free, complimentary access to Vodafone Play and Amazon Prime and some pricier plans also offer complimentary mobile insurance and Netflix subscription for two months. Airtel Infinity plans, on the other hand, provide free access to Wynk Music and some pricier plans bundle Airtel TV subscription, Amazon Prime subscription, handset insurance and free add-on connection with unlimited calls.
