28 October 2017

As the price wars continue in the Indian telecom space, Vodafone has rolled out new voice offers for prepaid users in Delhi National Capital Region. The new Rs177 and Rs496 vouchers are available to those who join Vodafone's SuperNet 4G network.

Vodafone's Rs496 plan gives users unlimited local and long-distance calls along with 1GB data per day. This totals to 84GB data for 84 days. This is a First Recharge offer, which means only people who migrate to Vodafone 4G will be eligible for the voucher.

Vodafone's Rs177 plan offers unlimited local and long-distance calling with 1GB data for 28 days to new customers. The company in a press statement said that the First Recharges are applicable for MNP (Mobile Number Portability) customers as well.

''We, at Vodafone, believe in providing the best network service experience and value to our customers. We are pleased to extend world class Vodafone services with a basket of offerings to mobile subscribers in Delhi NCR. The Rs177 and Rs496 First Recharges are very attractive offers for pre-paid customers wanting to switch over to Vodafone SuperNet,'' Alok Verma, Business Head, Delhi and NCR, Vodafone India, said.

Vodafone's Rs496 plan comes as Reliance Jio updated its list of prepaid and post-paid plans to include a Rs459 voucher. The prepaid offer gives users 84GB of data over 84 days.

Unlimited STD and local calling as well as SMS is free on Jio's network. Notably, The Indian Express points out, Jio's Rs499 plan seems more beneficial for people looking for a plan with longer validity. It offers 91GB data for 91 days, with a limit or FUP (Fair Usage Policy) of 1GB per day.
