Last month, we exclusively reported about the Vodafone India’s RED postpaid plans with their revamped data offerings. And now, we have another exclusive information regarding the Vodafone’s yet-to-be-announced prepaid 4G data plans.
Vodafone, India’ second largest telecom network with over 200 million subscribers, will soon announce some new data plans. However, the benefit with these plans will only be limited to customers with 4G handset and Vodafone 4G SIM card.
So, what are the new offerings? Previously, when recharging with Rs. 147 data pack, users were rewarded with 450MB of standard data (2G/3G/4G), however, this newly revamped plan will offer an additional 574 MB of 4G data exclusively for 4G handset and SIM card holders. That said, if you own a 4G handset, you will get 1GB of data at just Rs. 147 per month.
The same scenario applies to every other prepaid 4G data pack as well. For example, when you recharge with the Rs. 265 pack, you will get 4GB of 4G data and with the Rs. 355 pack, you now get 6GB of data.
Having said that, Vodafone’s maximum 4G data plan of Rs. 1499 now offers and insane 35GB of 4G data. But, do make a note that these plans are applicable only for users with a 4G handset and 4G SIM card. Consumers who don’t have a 4G SIM will get the normal benefits. It is worth noticing that all these plans are valid for 28 days.
Our source also confirmed that Vodafone will first announce these plans only for the Karnataka region, but will soon roll out to another circle as well. Also, these new plans will be applicable for both old and new customers of Vodafone. All they need is just a 4G handset and SIM card.
After you exhaust the allocated data, you will be charged four paise/10KB, which is again as the normal 4G rates. Sadly, these plans will be made available only via recharge from outlets or any digital recharge apps.
