New Vodafone Reduces Data Benefit of Rs 399 Prepaid Recharge by 14GB
Following the footsteps of Bharti Airtel, Vodafone India has revised its Rs 399 and Rs 199 prepaid recharges. While the Rs 199 prepaid plan now offers better data benefit, the Rs 399 plan’s data benefit has been reduced. Earlier, the Rs 399 open market prepaid plan from Vodafone used to offer 1.4GB data per day for 70 days which is an overall data benefit of 98GB. However, the same plan now ships with 1GB data per day for 84 days, which is 14GB less than the earlier data benefit. The Rs 199 prepaid plan, on the other hand, now comes with 2.8GB additional data spanned for the entire validity of 28 days. Vodafone’s Rs 199 prepaid plan, like Airtel’s plan, also comes with 1.5GB daily data.
Vodafone Revises Rs 199 and Rs 399 Prepaid Plans
The Rs 199 prepaid plan by Vodafone now offers 1.5GB daily 2G/3G/4G data, totalling its entire data benefit to 42GB 4G data with a validity of 28 days. On top of that, the other benefits of the plan include unlimited local and national calling, SMS and roaming. Subscribers should also make note that the 1.5GB data comes with FUP limit meaning that the speed gets throttled down when the limit is exhausted. Previously, this plan used to offer 1.4GB daily data meaning that now it provides 100MB extra data to the users.
The Rs 399 prepaid plan is another pack by Vodafone which has undergone revision and now it comes with a validity of 84 days and a daily data offering of 1GB. This plan also offers unlimited STD calling, 100 SMS and roaming. To recall, earlier the same plan used to offer 1.4GB of daily data for 70 days, meaning that now the validity of the plan has been increased and the daily data cap has been decreased. Notably, Vodafone also reduced the overall data benefit.
Vodafone Rs 199 and Rs 399 Calling Cap
Another thing which the subscribers of the Rs 399 and Rs 199 prepaid plan should note is that both of these plans come with a daily and weekly max calling cap. Therefore subscribers are limited to making only 250 minutes to call in a day, while there is a max cap on 1000 minutes of calling weekly. After hitting the FUP limit, the subscribers will be charged at 1.2 paise per second or Re 1 per minute depending on the usage. A similar cap has been laid on the data usage as well, so when users exhaust their FUP limit, they will be charged at 50 paise per MB.
Bharti Airtel Also Revises Rs 199 and Rs 399 Prepaid Plans
In other news, the former telecom leader, Bharti Airtel also revised its Rs 199 and Rs 399 prepaid plans in the country. The Rs 199 prepaid recharge from Airtel now comes with 1.5GB data per day, while the Rs 399 plan ships with 1GB data per day for 84 days. Airtel has made this change across all the circles in India.
