Vodafone Offers 2GB Data Per Day, Unlimited Local And STD Calls And More At Rs 348 To Counter Jio’s Rs 399 Plan

This Vodafone plan which was first launched in August this year comes as a major competition to Airtel's Rs 349 plan and Jio's 399 plan that offer exciting deals for its prepaid customers.

New Delhi, December 14: Telecom major Vodafone India has revised its Rs 348 pack for prepaid customers to counter rival Jio and Airtel’s disruptive offers. Under the new plan, users who got 1GB of data per day will now be able to get 2GB data per day. This means prepaid users are eligible to effectively get a total of 56GB of data along with voice calling facilities for 28 days at Rs 348. The plan, which was first launched in August this year comes as a major competition to Airtel’s Rs 349 plan and Jio’s 399 plan that offer exciting deals for its prepaid customers.

The entry of Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio in September 2016 waged a data war in the telecom sector, forcing rival telcos to slash their tariff rates to retain their customers. Since then, all the major telcos including Airtel, Vodafone, Idea and others have been revising their plans and rolling out new ones to benefit customers.  Under the newly upgraded Vodafone plan, the telco is providing unlimited local, STD, and roaming calls with a daily cap of 250 minutes. This means Vodafone users taking up this plan will be able to make voice calls not more than 25 minutes every day, after which a 1 paisa per second will be charged. It had to be noted that the users can use 1000 calling minutes in a week.

As per reports, users are also eligible for a 5 percent cashback on availing the 348 plan from the app and website. If we were to compare this plan with Airtel and Jio, the Rs 349 Airtel plan offers 2GB 4G data per day, 28-day validity, free calls, and 100 SMSes per day while the Jio’s Rs 309 plan offers 49GB data at 1GB per day and 49-day validity, along with free calls, 3,000 SMSes, roaming outgoing calls.
