Vodafone Idea (Vi) offered the most attractive benefit - double data for the subscribers of some of its prepaid plans earlier this year. Going by the same, it offers unlimited voice calls, 100 SMS and other benefits along with double the data that the plan actually offers. This was beneficial for users who work from home and are involved in online gaming and video streaming. Now, there is some bad news as the company has discontinued the double data benefits on the plans priced at Rs 299, Rs 449 and Rs 699.
Apparently, instead of 4GB of data on a daily basis, users will get only 2GB of data. As of now, there is no clarity regarding the circles where Vi has discontinued double data benefits. This announcement comes close on the heels of the price hike on Vi tariff plans by up to 25%. Earlier this week, Vi announced the tariff hike on its prepaid plans and the new pricing is effective from today. Having said that, let's check out the benefits offered by these Vi plans from here along with their revised pricing.
