In order to compete with the rival telecom service operators, the second largest service provider in India, Vodafone has come up with the increased validity of its long-time plans. The company has revised the validity of Rs 458 and Rs 509 plans. Now the Rs 458 tariff plan offers benefits for 84 days, while the Rs 509 tariff plan gives benefits for 91 days from the date of recharge. The newly revised plans are valid only in Vodafone 4G circles such as Mumbai, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, etc. Other than these like as Bihar, Andhra Pradesh & Telangana, etc., the old plans are applicable.
Talking about the benefits of these plans, the revised Rs 458 tariff plan of Vodafone now gives 1GB of 3G/4G data per day, 100 SMS per day, and unlimited local/STD including roaming calls for the validity of 84 days, while on the other hand, the Rs 509 tariff plan offers the same benefits for 91 days, which earlier was of validity of 84 days.
Bharti Airtel and Reliance Jio have rolled out VoLTE services in most part of the country for which the customers are enjoying the crystal clear calling experience with unlimited calling. Although, Vodafone is behind these two in launching the VoLTE services but it is soon going to happen by the end of this month. Although, Vodafone is limiting the unlimited voice calls to 250 minutes per day and 1000 minutes per week but after the VoLTE, it will also be able to provide unlimited calling in some of the metro cities.
If we look at the similar plans from Airtel and Jio, Airtel offers Rs 448 tariff plan with unlimited voice calls, 100 SMS per day, and 1GB data per day for 84 days, whereas the Rs 509 plan provides the same for 91 days. While Reliance Jio has a Rs 399 which gives the same benefits as Airtel Rs 448 tariff plan for 84 days, and the Rs 449 plan provides the same for 91 days. So it can be seen that the plans from Vodafone are slightly overpriced than other two. But is always interesting to see this ongoing war between the telecom incumbents.
