High-speed data packs are getting cheaper by the day as every telecom operator in the country are looking for an upper hand. While Reliance Jio is still continuing its dominance in the market, incumbent telcos are slowly catching up, especially Vodafone India and Bharti Airtel. And as per the information we received, Vodafone will soon offer two prepaid tariff plans of Rs 799 and Rs 549, matching the benefits of Jio's plans. Vodafone will offer 4.5GB data per day with the Rs 799 plan and 3.5GB data per day with the Rs 549 plan, a little 0.5GB less when compared to Jio's Rs 799 and Rs 509 tariff plans.
Both these tariff plans will go live across Vodafone's popular circles in the coming days, but as of this writing, the plans were not yet launched. Both the plans will offer other benefits such as unlimited voice calls and SMS benefits on a daily basis for the entire validity period.
Vodafone Rs 799 Prepaid Plan
Vodafone’s prepaid pack of Rs 799 is specially designed to take on Reliance Jio's Rs 799 pack, which offers a whopping 5GB data per day. And Vodafone's upcoming plan will provide 4.5GB data per day for a period of 28 days, making it 126GB data for the whole 28 days validity.
The plan also offers unlimited local/STD and roaming calls pan India. Users even get 100 SMS free per day after recharging with this plan.
Vodafone Rs 549 Prepaid Plan
Vodafone's prepaid recharge plan priced at Rs 549 offers 98GB of 4G high-speed data, with a daily limit of 3.5GB data per day. This prepaid recharge plan also offers unlimited local, STD and roaming voice calls. There’s provision for 100 free texts per day. Vodafone's Rs. 549 prepaid recharge plan is valid for 28 days.
Jio’s prepaid recharge priced at Rs 509 offers 112GB of 4G high-speed internet data for a period of 28 days. The daily data cap is set at 4GB per day and included in the plan is unlimited local, STD and roaming voice calling feature. There is as well 100 free SMSes along with a subscription to host of Jio apps bundled in the plan.
Jio’s another plan meant for users with higher data usage is Rs 799 plan. This comes with a total of 140GB for a validity period of 28 days, which translates to 5GB daily data. There’s once again unlimited local, STD and roaming calls along with 100 free texts. As always you get a free subscription to Jio apps like Jio Music, JioCinema and JioTV.
Vodafone is also offering a free subscription to Vodafone Play to all the customers, but there's one massive letdown with entire Vodafone's combo plans, and it's the voice calling FUP. Vodafone is still restricting users to make only 250 minutes of voice calls per day, 1000 minutes per week, and that too only to 300 unique numbers for the validity period. When you compare the same with Airtel and Jio, they both are offering unlimited voice calls without any FUP limit.
