Catching up to other similarly priced plans by telecom operators, Vodafone India has rolled out a new plan for its prepaid customers, just ahead of Diwali.
Under the new Rs 399 plan, prepaid users can avail 90 GB of 4G data as well as unlimited calling for 6 months from the recharge date. The new 399 plan launched days before the festival season starts, will compete directly against Airtel and Reliance Jio's 399 plan which also offers similar data and unlimited voice calling options.
Airtel's 399 plan offers 1 GB of data per day and unlimited calling for 28 days to 4G handset users, while non-4G handset users enjoy marginally higher daily data consumption limits of 1.25 GB per day with the same validity. Reliance Jio's 399 plan, on the other hand, offers its 'Prime' users 84 GB of data for 84 days with the fair usage policy (FUP) set to 1 GB of data per day. Jio Prime users also get unlimited local, as well as STD, calls with the same 399 plan.
As part of its Diwali offerings, Reliance Jio is also offering its customers a chance to avail 100 percent cash back in the form of vouchers on recharging for RS 399. According to the company's website, these vouchers will arrive in denominations of Rs 50 and can be availed after 15 November.
