Bharti Airtel has been the leader in the postpaid segment for more than two years now, but Vodafone REDX postpaid plan is here to tackle the same

Highlights
  • Vodafone REDX plan is the best postpaid offering in the industry right now
  • Bharti Airtel is also offering a similarly priced postpaid plan of Rs 999
  • Vodafone's plan is miles ahead of Airtel postpaid plan in terms of benefits

Last week, Vodafone came up with a unique postpaid offering which Bharti Airtel was rumoured to launch a few months ago as ‘Airtel Black’ tier. Vodafone REDX postpaid plan priced at Rs 999 is a unique offering from the company and in the industry alike. With the REDX plan, Vodafone is shipping three popular OTT service subscriptions, access to airport lounge access, faster data speeds and unlimited data & voice calls & SMSes every month. On the flip side, Bharti Airtel also has a similarly priced postpaid plan of Rs 999, which is aimed at the standard postpaid users but has some unique benefits on offer. Airtel’s Rs 999 postpaid plan also comes with four free add-on connections which the Vodafone REDX plan lacks. Let’s compare both the Rs 999 postpaid plans from Bharti Airtel.

Vodafone REDX Postpaid Plan at Rs 999: What it Offers

Vodafone’s REDX premium postpaid plan priced at Rs 999 comes with various unique benefits. Firstly, let’s talk about the basic ones. The plan offers unlimited voice calls without any daily or monthly FUP limit, 100 SMSes per day and unlimited data for monthly rental. Although Vodafone is marketing the plan as unlimited data plan, there’s a FUP limit of 150GB, post which the speeds will be reduced to 1 Mbps. Also, Vodafone promises 50% faster data speeds with the REDX plan, but it also says “The data speed may vary depending on several factors including the nature of handset, network congestion, location of access, topography, barriers caused by constructions etc.” So we’re not sure right now on how customers will be able to get faster speeds on Vodafone REDX plan.

As for the Entertainment benefits, the Vodafone REDX postpaid plan also comes with Rs 5,998 worth of Netflix credit valid for one year, one-year of Amazon Prime membership at no extra cost and Rs 999 worth ZEE5 Premium membership for one year for free. Also, customers will get access to Vodafone Play mobile app which is the company’s OTT content aggregator app.

For the travellers, Vodafone REDX postpaid plan offers i-Roam Pack worth Rs 2,999 for one week and it can be availed once every 12 months. On top of that, travellers will get access to four Airport Lounge Access at no extra cost when availed through My Vodafone app in a year. Do make a note that travellers can avail lounge access for on time at any international airport. There’s the priority customer service as well applicable on this postpaid plan.

Airtel Rs 999 Postpaid Plan: What it Offers to the

Bharti Airtel has been the leader in the postpaid segment for more than two years now. The company also has a Rs 999 postpaid plan which offers 150GB data every month with carry forward functionality up to 500GB, unlimited voice calls without any FUP limit and 100 SMSes per day for the entire rental period. Additionally, the plan also comes with three months of Netflix Basic subscription worth Rs 1,497, one-year of Amazon Prime membership, premium ZEE5 subscription that renews every month, Airtel Xstream app subscription and Handset Protection as well.

The highlight of this postpaid plan from Airtel is the four add-on connections. Yes, Airtel users can add three regular add-ons and one data add-on to the same primary connection. Essentially, this makes the Rs 999 postpaid plan from Airtel valid for four regular Airtel connections and one Airtel data connection. So under Rs 1,000, Airtel postpaid users can enjoy unlimited benefits every month, which is not the case with Vodafone REDX plan.

Vodafone REDX vs Airtel Rs 999 Postpaid Plan: Which One is Better

There’s no doubt that the Vodafone REDX postpaid plan offers much better benefits like one-year of Netflix subscription, one-week of international roaming pack for free and Airport Lounge access for four times a year. But this is just for one connection and this plan will be extremely useful for those who travel a lot. On the flip side, Airtel’s postpaid plan of Rs 999 is beneficial for basic day-to-day users. And the add-ons are handy for the basic users.

Vodafone has the Worst ping to many US based VPN’s used to access VM Ware Horizon client for official purpose. So Its waste to go for such a premium(post paid) service in Vodafone. When connecting to these type of VPN Airtel being the best (That’s why many IT people who work from home prefers this network. And this network get major revenue in this type of corporate plans). at least 1 Mbps connection is needed for stable VPN connection in this network.

I cent percent agree with u… Vodafone’s SIM is not working in New York, USA.. I just sent my 1 relative with vodafone card to the USA… but there is no network in phone.. so I complained to vodafone.. and they suggest us to change our phone Manual Mode under network settings.. and ask to select T-mobile network but when we did this our phone’s screen displayed “No network found” message..

Yes . Same plan they reduced the benefits and added some waste nuts and bolts and they are telling it as RedX plan.
May be they said after 150 Gb FUP , 1 Mbps , If we can use more than 50 Gb in that 1 Mbps its useful. else its waste . And again its single user plan.
