Vodafone is on a roll. Last week, we reported that the company would launch two new plans of Rs. 342 and Rs. 346 to take on Reliance Jio. And now, the company is back with yet another offer for selected prepaid users of Rs. 249 offering unlimited voice calling and data.
Speaking more about the plan, as said earlier, Vodafone claims that it is limited to selected customers and users can check their eligibility by dialling *121#. The new Rs. 249 plan offers unlimited local and STD calls to any network within the circle, but no roaming calls, though.
Also, the plan offers unlimited 2G data for 28 days. There's another special offer from Vodafone. Customers whoever recharges with this scheme will be eligible to get the same pack for additional 28 days after the expiry.
For example, if you recharge with the all new Rs. 249 plan, you will get the unlimited calling and unlimited 2G data for 28 days. However, at the date of recharge expiry, the plan will be auto renewed and offers the same benefits for additional 28 days, which is a pure bonus. Nevertheless, this additional offer is for a limited period, and Vodafone did not mention any specific date of expiry.
Having said that, Vodafone is heavily concentrating on combating the Reliance Jio and its new JioPrime membership. Just after Jio announcing its JioPrime membership, Vodafone reportedly came out with two new plans of Rs. 346 and Rs. 342. The Rs. 342 plan offers unlimited national calling along with 1GB of data per day for 28 days. Currently, the plan is available only for segmented customers of Vodafone.
There are some other rumors as well saying that Vodafone is planning to attract new customers as well with some new offers. The company is planning to introduce plans for new Vodafone consumers offering unlimited data and voice calls, but these are just rumors.
Furthermore, Vodafone is also looking to revamp their Vodafone RED postpaid plans with better data offering. Just yesterday, Bharti Airtel revamped their myPlan Infinity postpaid plans with better data offering than others, and Vodafone is vying to take on Bharti Airtel.
