Vodafone Idea (Vi) unveiled a new premium plan for prepaid users, applicable all over India. The plan is priced at ₹2,999 and offers data, SMS, calls, and a few other benefits. Vi had also introduced new plans around Diwali, with their price points being ₹1,449, ₹2,899, and ₹3,099. The new plan is available on the official website for users to evaluate and purchase.
Vi’s new plan has a validity period of 365 days and offers 850GB of data with no caps. Users will also get 100 SMSs per day. Furthermore, to sweeten the deal, Vi is also offering a few benefits along with this plan, such as access to Vi TV Shows and Vi Movies. Users can enjoy access to premium films, news, live TV, original content, and more on the app.
The plan is also offering its Binge All Night benefits. This allows users to enjoy unlimited data at night, between 12 am and 6 am. These features come with no extra cost or pack reduction of any kind.
If you happen to exhaust 850GB of data, you can always recharge your smartphone using an add-on data plan. Note that if you don’t do this, your data usage will be charged at 50p/MB. Additionally, if you exhaust your limit of 100 SMSs, per day, then the company will charge you ₹1 per SMS, or ₹1.5 per STD SMSs.
While we’ve begun to see 5G rollouts from other brands like Jio and Airtel, the same cannot be said for Vi even though the latter did announce their intention to get into the 5G market. Vi has acquired spectrum in 3300MHz and 26GHz 5G bands but is yet to confirm when it will be offering its services.
