- Vi has revised the prices of its prepaid recharge plans in India.
- The base plan now starts at Rs 99 and go all the way up to Rs 2899.
- The new Vi plans are effective from Thursday, November 25th.
Vodafone Idea (Vi) has revised the prices of its prepaid plans in India and they will be effective from November 25th in the country. This comes just a day after Airtel refreshed its prepaid plans in India. The company says the new plans will start the process of ARPU improvement and will address the financial stress faced by the industry. This will also allow VIL to continue improving its mobile network. “In line with its commitment to providing its customers with simple and convenient products, Vi has curated an optimum range of feature-rich plans for both voice and data. Customers can avail their benefits by selecting the plan best suited to their specific needs,” said Vi.
Much like Airtel, the new Vodafone Idea plans now start at Rs 99 for the base plan. It offers a talk time balance and 200MB data benefits. The unlimited voice call plans start at Rs 179, up from Rs 149. It offers unlimited voice calls, 300 SMS and 2GB data with a validity of 28 days. Vi plans are almost the same as Airtel and are effective just a day before Airtel’s plans kick in. The telecom network says that Vi is committed to “playing its role in accelerating the realization of the Digital India vision of the government.” The popular Rs 599 plan offers 1.5GB of data per day, unlimited calls, 100 SMS per day and 84 days validity now costs Rs 719.
Now that Vi has spiked its prepaid recharge plans, we expect an announcement from Jio to drop any day now. The company might bundle some extra data or some other benefit to make its plans look slightly cheaper than Airtel and Vi. We should know more details about the Jio plans soon.
