Vodafone India has announced the availability of ‘one-time trial packs’ for 2G and 3G users on both prepaid and postpaid connections. After purchasing the pack, users will be able to use 500MB of data for a maximum of seven days. 2G users will have to pay Rs. 29 while 3G users will have to pay Rs. 49 for the same data and time limit. If pre-paid users already have an existing Internet plan, then buying this pack will overwrite the older plan while for post-paid customers, the pre-existing plan will come back into force once the trial pack’s validity expires. Once the validity does expire, the plan will not auto-renew and users can choose to pick from one of Vodafone’s other data plans.
COO of Vodafone India, Vivek Mathur explained that the telco was hoping to entice mobile users who didn’t use the Internet on their phones, with the trial packs. Mathur said that Vodafone intended for the trial packs to make mobile Internet ‘less intimidating’ to users and encourage them to explore the advantages of mobile Internet.
Interested Vodafone users can opt for the trial pack by messaging TRY to 111.
