Vodafone’s 3GB data prepaid pack varies according to the regions. It costs roughly around Rs 400 for 84GB data (3GB per day) for 28 days along with unlimited voice calling and free subscription to Vodafone Play and Zee5 streaming services. In addition to that, Vodafone has also introduced a double-data scheme, under which three prepaid packs from the telco are now offering at least 3GB data per day. The packs (again varying based on the regions) are priced at Rs 249, Rs 399, and Rs 599, which initially offered 1.5GB data for 28 days, 56 days, and 84 days, respectively. The double data benefit is valid only for a limited period of time.

The same benefits are applicable for Idea users as well.
