It was a long way coming. As we have reported several times earlier regarding the Vodafone India’s revamp of their postpaid plans to stay in the competition, we now came out with the exclusive information regarding these schemes.
Yes, Vodafone is modifying their ‘Vodafone RED’ postpaid plans in coming days. Our source also revealed what the telecom company is going to launch. They are not announcing any new plan under the RED scheme, but completely revamping the three affordable plans.
The cheapest plan under the Vodafone RED is the Rs. 499 one, which previously offered 1GB of data and unlimited local and STD calls. But, the yet-to-be revamped plan will offer 1GB of normal data along with other 2GB of 4G data.
The same applies with the Rs. 699 plan as it previously offered just 2.5GB of data, but will soon offer 5GB of data with the other 2.5GB data being offered in the form of 4G data. The Rs. 999 plan, right now offers a mere 5GB of data and the revamped one will offer the usual 5GB of data and the other 3GB will be offered in the form of 4G data.
Apart from this, customers whoever joins in Vodafone and gets a new 4G handset will get additional 9GB of 4G data. There are no more changes to these plans apart from the data hike for each plan. All the local and STD calls will be free for that particular bill period, and roaming incoming calls are free as well.
Vodafone, India’ second largest telecom network is making this move especially because of Bharti Airtel who recently changed their myPlan Infinity postpaid plans and they now start from Rs. 549. With these newly revamped plans, it is pretty much clear that Vodafone is heavily concentrating on offering more mobile data to the customers and aggressively taking on Bharti Airtel.
Speaking of the roaming outgoing calls, the company is offering unlimited free roaming outgoing calls to any network with the plans starting from Rs. 1299. When compared the same scenario with rivals, both the Airtel and Idea Cellular offers unlimited roaming outgoing calls from Rs. 1199 only, but with Vodafone’s RED Rs. 1299 plan, you will get 12GB of free 3G/4G data, which no other operator offers.
The updated Vodafone RED plans will go live in coming days. Till then, let us know what do you think about these revamped offerings from Vodafone India.
Update: The plans are already live in Karnataka circle. Also, conference calls are also free on an unlimited plan.
