Vodafone is offering this recharge plan in select circles and buyers will get unlimited local, STD and roaming calls within India, 100 SMS per day for 365 days.
Keeping pace with the constantly changing framework in the telecom world, Vodafone has launched the Rs 1699 plan in select circles. The plan essentially matches with the offerings from its competitor Airtel, but offers 500MB data less than what Jio is offering. As per a listing on the Vodafone website, the plan gives users unlimited local, STD and roaming calls within India with 1GB 4G/3G Data per day as well as 100 SMS per day for 365 days.
This is the same as the Rs 1499 plan that the telecom giant launched earlier this month. This means that those who wish to get the benefits of the plan will now have to pay Rs 200 more. Unfortunately, the plan is only available in a few circles, like Kerala, and those who wish to purchase it, can directly go to the Vodafone India website or recharge via the Vodafone app. Some circles still show both the Rs 1499 and Rs 1699 recharge options.
As mentioned, this Vodafone plan will compete with the Rs 1699 plan offered by Reliance Jio. The Reliance Jio Plan offers customers unlimited local and national calls without any FUP along with 100 local and national SMS’ daily. However, Jio is giving 1.5GB data per day, which means that Jio provides 182.5GB of additional data benefits over those provided by Airtel and Vodafone. The Jio Plan also gives access to JioTV, JioMovies and JioSaavn Music to its customers.
