Vodafone’s prepaid plans review: Better plans than Reliance Jio?

Most of the telecom companies these days are looking to find ways to tackle Jio’s strategies to capture users, and Vodafone too has recently upgraded its Rs 458 prepaid recharge offer to take on Jio. As per a report, the customers will receive the benefit of 2.8 GB data coupled with limitless voice calls. The customers can now avail 235.2 GB data with a validity of 84 days in its kitty. The generic Rs 458 plan doesn’t come with SMS benefits, but the inclusion of 100 SMS every day is showing for a few customers.

The company also recently updated its Rs 199 plan by upgrading its benefits. It was previously offering 1.4 GB data, which was later revised to 2.8 GB with a validity of 28 days. The scheme is available on both 3G and 4G platform. This plan too proposes unlimited call advantages with an upper cap of 250 minutes per day and 1000 minutes per week. The unlimited voice calls also come with regularly updated FUP limits sans SMS benefits. The 199 recharge pack of Vodafone might be a better deal compared to Jio’s Rs 198 recharge pack that packs 2 GB data per day with unlimited voice calls and 100 SMS’s. Jio also will be giving access to Jio cinema, news as additional features.

However, it will be worthwhile to note that the offers on the board are not meant for people where the 4G network of the company has not been attained. Prepaid users from Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, MP, and CG will not be able to avail the 2.8 GB data for the Rs 199 recharge plan. Barring the data upgrade, unlimited voice calls and 100 SMS cap will still hold good here.

The Rs 458 recharge plan is said to take on Jio’s and Airtel’s Rs 448 pack. The Jio plan offers 2GB of extended data and the Airtel offers 1.4 GB of extra data. The validity of both Jio and Airtel comes to 84 and 82 days respectively. The pack, unlike its rivals, also offers access to Vodafone Play Live TV service. The postpaid battle is also heating up; with Vodafone upgrading the plans with inclusions of Netflix and Prime video combined with inbuilt ISD benefits.

The telecom companies are fighting it out to get the maximum share in postpaid and pre-paid market segments by offering wonderful options in the market. The customers are now surely getting the maximum benefit out of these offers.
