If you are not aware, Airtel discontinued the Rs 49 prepaid plan in lieu of asking users to opt for the Rs 79 prepaid plan. Similarly, Vodafone Idea has discontinued the entry-level Rs 49 prepaid plan. In this article, we will look at a similar priced prepaid plan offered by Airtel and Vodafone Idea.
Bharti Airtel Rs 129 Prepaid Plan

Vodafone Idea (Vi) Rs 129 Prepaid Plan
Vodafone Idea Rs 129 prepaid plan overpowers the offering of Airtel in Rs 129 prepaid plan. Under the plan, subscribers get 2GB of internet data along with truly unlimited calling benefits. The service validity of the prepaid plan is 24 days which is similar to Airtel. 300 SMS for the entire validity period is also included in the plan. Apart from data, calling, and SMS benefits, Vodafone Idea does not offer any additional streaming benefits. Vodafone Idea 1GB internet data and a truly unlimited calling plan are available for Rs 109. However, the service validity of the prepaid plan is 20 days, and no outgoing SMS facility is included in the prepaid plan.
If we compare the similar offering, Vodafone Idea offers extra data at the same price. Since the validity of the prepaid plans is the same, the additional 1GB of data offered by Vodafone Idea can be crucial for subscribers for work or entertainment needs. However, Airtel wins the race in terms of additional benefits. While Airtel offers Airtel Xstream, hello tunes and Wynk Music subscription, there are no additional benefits available in the prepaid plan offered by Vodafone Idea.
