Vodafone’s Rs 399 postpaid plan is now said to be revised with the offer of extra data. This extra offering apparently amounts to 150 GB over a period of six months. Here, it is worth noting that these revisions come at a time when there have been intense debates with Reliance Jio deciding to levy 6 paise per minute for outgoing calls to other networks. This 6 paise charge would be Interconnect Usage Charge (IUC) that TRAI has mandated for payment to the recipient operator.
Now, as far as Vodafone’s Rs 399 plan is concerned, the increased data offering of 150 GB would be available to only new subscribers, for a time period of 6 months as per a Telecom Talk report. The data offering, under the Rs 399 postpaid scheme, was just 40 GB for an entire month. The plan also lets subscribers carry over unused data forward to their next billing cycles. With the extra 150 GB data, postpaid users should get a lot to cheer about considering that it is now possible to watch more movies/multimedia content with the increased 4G data offering. These offerings, as of now, are applicable to only new subscribers of the Rs 399 plan.
In related news, Vodafone has reiterated that it won’t levy extra 6 paise per minute charge to users of its unlimited prepaid plans. The telco once again, very recently, reiterated its commitment towards keeping unlimited calls as it is. These would be free and unlimited. Customers need not pay 6 paise per minute as IUC charges. Also, at this instant, Reliance Jio has come out with a list of IUC-specific tariff plans for customers. To avail these, customers should recharge again – these recharge tariff plans start from as low as Rs 10. USP of these plans is that they come with additional data offerings.
