Prepaid War: Vodafone India Offering 235.2GB of 4G Data at Rs 458 In a Bid to Rival Jio

Vodafone India is intensifying the prepaid tariff war in India. The telco has started offering 235.2GB of 3G/4G with its Rs 458 prepaid plan for select users. This essentially converts to 2.8GB data benefit per day for a period of 84 days. While a certain set of users are receiving the Rs 458 plan, some users are receiving the same plan at just Rs 398. Alongside the data benefit, the plan of Rs 458/Rs 398 also offers unlimited voice calls, but sadly, it does not provide any SMS benefits. The Rs 458 prepaid plan from Vodafone competes with Airtel’s Rs 448 plan, with which the telco is giving 1.4GB data benefit per day for 82 days. On the flip side, Jio is providing two prepaid plans of Rs 448 and Rs 449 giving a data benefit of 2GB data per day and 1.5GB data per day for 84 days and 91 days respectively.


Aforesaid, Vodafone is providing these plans only to a limited set of users at the moment, and the price of the plan differs too. For example, some users are getting the same Rs 458 prepaid plan at Rs 398. Also, the benefits of the plan vary with every user. Some users are even getting 100 SMS per day benefit with the Rs 458 plan.

Just yesterday, we reported that Vodafone is offering 2.8GB data per day with its Rs 199 prepaid plan, again for select users. The Rs 199 plan offers benefits for 28 days. Vodafone is limiting the voice calls to 250 minutes per day and 1000 minutes per week.

For the unaware, Vodafone already has open market prepaid plans of Rs 199, Rs 255, Rs 349, Rs 399, Rs 458 and Rs 509. The Rs 199, Rs 349, Rs 399, Rs 458 and Rs 509 prepaid plans offer 1.4GB data benefit per day. Vodafone has revised the Rs 199 and Rs 458 prepaid plans to provide double data benefit of 2.8GB data per day for the same validity period of 28 days and 84 days respectively. With this Rs 458 plan, Vodafone has brought down the value of per GB to Rs 1.94, which is amongst the lowest in the Indian telecom industry right now.

Jio is best in Bangalore. Vodafone speed is not good. Also you cannot use the hotspot on ur phone to either stream content on you computer or download. Jio is unbeatable.

It’s a Bombay circle number. I use the number in South Gujarat on roaming only, and very satisfied with Vodafone. They have blanket 3G coverage and you can put your device on WCDMA only mode for outstanding voice and data reception. Speeds can be an issue on 3G but my primary purpose is voice connection with background data transfer and Vodafone is unbeatable on that point.

You might be getting 3GBdata/day as compared to 2.8 GB/day. There is difference of 200Mb which is lot in my opinions.

@SANJIB BANERJEE Vodafone is still better than bsnl… First let your beloved bsnl launch 4G services than you can post comments on other 4G networks…!! Before bsnl lauches 4G services in India you can even witness 4G network by Vodafone on moon…!!

Siddu :

BSNL might even start 4G or 5G before vodafone idea merger which isgetting delayed. ?????

@Tamilan daa from past 3 years im hearing and seeing bsnl 4G in headlines and news, but till date once in 3 months bsnl releases a press note regarding 4G launch but there won’t be deployment…!! The only reason why bsnl is still alive because bsnl doesn’t pay spectrum money, for bsnl spectrum is allocated seperately, whereas private operators pay for spectrum.. If in next auction if DOT makes spectrum charges mandatory for bsnl, then you won’t see bsnl in 4G or 5G…!! Vodafone and Idea conditional merger was approved, Now Vodafone and Idea is ready is pay pending airwaves… Read more »
