- With this revision, Vodafone's Rs 509 and Rs 529 offer similar benefits for 90 days
- Vodafone Idea also launched a new yearly prepaid plan of Rs 1,999 in Kerala
After converting a couple of 1.4GB daily data prepaid plans to offer 1.5GB data per day, Vodafone has now revised the Rs 509 prepaid plan. Earlier, the UK-based telco converted the Rs 199 and Rs 458 recharges to provider 1.5GB daily data, and now, the Rs 509 gets a revision. However, the telco did not revise the Rs 529 prepaid plan which still ships 1.5GB data per day for 90 days, so there’s no difference between the Rs 509 and Rs 529 recharges at the moment as they both provide 1.5GB daily data for a period of 90 days. To recall, Vodafone also revised the Rs 209 and Rs 479 prepaid plans to offer 1.6GB data per day for 28 and 84 days respectively. But it did not modify the Rs 529 recharge, which might happen in the coming days.
Vodafone 1.6GB Daily Data Plans: What Do They Offer?
As noted, Vodafone has revised the Rs 209 and Rs 479 prepaid plans to offer 1.6GB data every day. Earlier, the same plans used to provide 1.5GB data per day, so a 100MB more data benefit has been added to the table now. Vodafone did not revise the Rs 529 prepaid plan which still offers 1.5GB data per day for 90 days. As noted, Vodafone has now converted the Rs 509 plan to 1.5GB daily data plan, which means that the Rs 529 prepaid plan will soon offer 1.6GB daily data.
Besides the data benefit, the Rs 209 and Rs 479 prepaid also ship with unlimited voice calling without any FUP limit, 100 SMS per day and Vodafone Play subscription for 28 days and 84 days respectively. Vodafone’s Rs 199, Rs 459 and Rs 509 prepaid plans now ship with 1.5GB data per day which is the reason why the telco upgraded the data benefit on Rs 209 and Rs 479 plans. Notably, Idea Cellular is also providing these prepaid plans across the country.
