Prepaid War: Idea Cellular Offers 28GB Data, Unlimited Voice Calls With its Rs 159 Plan

By November 1st, 2018 AT 8:38 PM

Right after Vodafone introducing the Rs 159 prepaid plan, Idea Cellular also came up with the same because the telco is looking to unify its tariff portfolio for the new entity Vodafone Idea Limited. Vodafone introduced the Rs 159 prepaid plan in some of its 4G circles but as an open market plan, but that’s not the case with Idea Cellular; The telco has unveiled this plan in its popular circles but as a segmented offer valid only for select users, like how Airtel is offering most of its new tariff plans. Another thing worth noting is the benefits of this new plan from Idea Cellular because it carries the same benefit as Vodafone’s Rs 159 prepaid recharge. After recharging, users will get 28GB of data, unlimited voice calls and 100 SMSes per day.


Idea Cellular Rs 159 Prepaid Recharge: Details and Benefits

Talking about the benefits offered by this new plan, it ships with 28GB of 2G/3G/4G data which will spread across 1GB data per day for the entire validity period of 28 days. Alongside the data benefit, users will also get unlimited local, STD and national roaming calling with a limitation. Despite launching VoLTE across major circles in the country, Idea Cellular is still limiting the voice calls to 250 minutes per day and 1000 minutes per week, which is underwhelming, to say the least. Lastly, the telco is also giving daily 100 SMSes for 28 days.

Idea Cellular Rs 159 Recharge is a Segmented Offer

Another thing which is worth noticing is the new plan from Idea Cellular is a segmented one and not an open market offer. While Vodafone launched the Rs 159 prepaid recharge as an open market in some circles, the same doesn’t apply with Idea Cellular’s plan as the telco decided to launch it as a segmented plan. If you want to check the availability of this plan on your Idea prepaid mobile number, head over to the company’s website or mobile app and check for the special offers associated with your number.

Idea Cellular Unifying its Tariff Portfolio With Vodafone

As you might be aware of by now, Vodafone India and Idea Cellular merged to form Vodafone Idea Limited which is currently the leading telecom service provider in the country. The combined entity became operational very recently, and right now, the telcos are in the process of getting everything together- including network infrastructure, tariff plans and employee base. Vodafone has launched a slew of prepaid plans in recent times and to make them available to its users, Idea Cellular is following its footsteps.

For example, Vodafone launched the Rs 159 prepaid recharge long back and Idea Cellular introduced it now. Likewise, we might see Idea coming with recharges such as Rs 279, Rs 189 and so on in the near future as Vodafone is already offering them to the customers.
