Is the Vodafone’s new high-end RED Postpaid plans enough to appeal the consumers?

By January 24th, 2017 AT 12:39 PM

Another week, another Vodafone offer launched, but this time, the Vodafone Postpaid users have something to cheer about. Vodafone yesterday added two more plans to their popular Vodafone RED postpaid schemes worth Rs. 1699 and Rs. 1999 offering unlimited calls and more data to combat Reliance Jio.

Earlier this month, the company revamped all of their Vodafone RED postpaid plans with better offerings and with these two new plans, Vodafone is trying to make a statement with their high-end offerings as well. But, the real question is: Are these new high-end postpaid enough to lure the customers?

Comparing the plans with Airtel’s myPlan Infinity of same denomination, Vodafone is providing much better goodies at the same price. For example, in the Vodafone’s Rs. 1699 plan, they are offering 16GB of normal data along with 20GB of 4G data exclusively for 4G handset users, whereas in Airtel myPlan Infinity of Rs. 1599, they are offering only 20GB of data, which is way less than the Vodafone’s offering.

The similar case applies to the Rs. 1999 plan as well. When subscribing to Vodafone’s new RED Rs. 1999 plan, you will get 20GB of standard data and 24GB of 4G data for 4G handset users. The similar denomination plan in Airtel offers 30GB of 4G data and additional 3GB of 4G data if you’re a new 4G handset user and you will be getting the same 3GB of data for 12 months.

After comparing these plans, we’re pretty much clear that Vodafone is currently offering better postpaid plans than Airtel. However, the India’ second largest telecom network doesn’t have the 4G base as Airtel, but it is worth noticing that Vodafone is expanding their 4G services to every city in India, but there’s a long way to go.

The only flaw with Vodafone is its little 4G coverage area, and consumers are furious about this issue already. So, if Vodafone quickly addresses this issue, then it will rule the Indian telecom sector
