Vodafone's Rs 1499 prepaid scheme is now said to be valid for 365 days. AT this juncture, it is worth noting that yearly recharge plans specially targeting prepaid subscribers has now seemingly become a trend of sorts considering the fact that monthly recharge hassles are avoided whilst getting to experience unlimited free voice calling (mostly) with at least 1 GB of high-speed data. Incumbent telco BSNL and fairly new entrant Reliance Jio are already offering yearly recharge plans that are priced at an identical Rs 1699 valid for 1 year.
Now, Vodafone’s Rs 1499 plan looks competitively priced when compared to the above plans. However, details of Vodafone’s new Rs 1499 prepaid scheme are now doing the rounds on social media and rumour mills. At this point in time, the plan is yet to be updated on the official recharge portal of the telco.
Also, there are intense speculations about the Vodafone Rs 1499 prepaid scheme being available for the entire Indian user base irrespective of geographical regions (excluding non-service areas of Vodafone). As per the details available, prepaid subscribers upon availing the scheme could indulge in unlimited voice calling and 4G-LTE internet data of up to 1GB per day. There would also be 100 free text messages offered in a day.
If you are a Vodafone prepaid subscribers do also check if access to Vodafone Pay subscription is enabled through the above recharge. Additionally, you should also be able to experience free calls on national roaming.
Here, it is worth noting that Vodafone could take time to update the telecom circle-by-circle listing as far as the Rs 1499 is concerned. As of now, the Rs 1499 plan is yet to reflect on the company’s recharge scheme of things online; this could be reflected within the myVodafone app.
Now, as expected, the new year has seemingly turned out to be a trendsetter as far as Indian telecom is concerned; whilst most observers have been calling these as competition to Reliance Jio’s offerings (for prepaid mobile phone users), we think that it is only to disrupt the sector in general rather than individually seek out competition. In the end, all that matters is customer service and adherence to the “customer is king” slogan.
