With the competition heating up in the telecom sector, Vodafone has reportedly launched a new Rs 99 prepaid plan for its users that need a voice-heavy pack. As per TelecomTalk, the telco is offering unlimited calling benefits with the recharge with a validity of 28 days, but the new prepaid plan is said to be available only for its users in the company’s 4G circles. Unlike other telcos, Vodafone is not bundling any data or text services with the plan and it’s not known whether a user will get to avail truly unrestricted calling like Reliance Jio or if one will be capped at 250 minutes per day and 1000 minutes per week. As this plan’s availability is said to be limited, users are advised to check before recharging.
The new plan by Vodafone goes up against Reliance Jio’s Rs 98 prepaid pack, which is clearly ahead of the curve with unlimited calls, 2GB 4G data and 300 SMS for 28 days. Additionally, one gets free access to the company’s suite of apps like JioTV, JioCinema and more. The telco also has a Rs 99 plan under which users can avail 500MB of data per day along with unlimited voice calls and 300 SMS for a period of 28 days. However, this plan can be availed only by JioPhone users. Airtel also recently updated its Rs 99 prepaid plan to offer 2GB data for 28 days. Along with more data, the telco is also offering unlimited voice calls and 100 SMS per day.
Data-heavy users might want to check out BSNL’s Rs 75 prepaid recharge that offers unlimited voice calls, 10GB data and 500 SMS for 15 days. An earlier report stated that the plan’s validity can be extended up to 180 days by again recharging with Special Tariff Vouchers (STVs) priced between Rs 98 to Rs 199.
