The tariffs and terms and conditions vary from circle to circle.
In the first of what are likely to be a series of changes to consolidate and gain subscribers, Vodafone, yesterday introduced Bada Data Chota Price which is a series of low price data pack starting at Rs 24 with a validity of 30 days varying from circle to circle. Having said that, surprisingly, the company has not released information about what the data packs in different circles would be. Neither does the Vodafone website has any mention of it.
Sandeep Kataria, Chief Commercial Officer, Vodafone India said, "We are democratizing data by making it more affordable and accessible. This is key to driving usage and encouraging first-time users to come online. We are confident that our Bada Data Chota Price packs will empower our hundreds of million customers to remain confidently connected for the full month and enjoy the power of internet via the mobile on our modern and seamless network."
Telecom operators like Vodafone, Airtel and Idea have been on their toes ever since Reliance Jio was made commercial back in September 2016. Further, this move might as well be a consequence of Reliance Jio's announcement yesterday in which Mr. Mukesh Ambani extended the free Welcome Offer to 31st March 2017.
Last week, Vodafone also introduced 'Bada Data Chota Price' offering internet data at Rs 24 with 30-day validity.
For prepaid customers, the telecom operator has also introduced small credit offerings for both talktime and data.
This step is yet another attempt by Vodafone to counter Jio's free calling and 4G data services.
As per Vodafone, this WiFi zone at IGI Airport is spread across over 6,00,000 sq mts and is the largest in India.
However you can only use that data from 12 to 6 AM and that too on 4G handset only.
As the name suggests, the Vodafone Flex offers flexibility to prepaid users and comes with no pre-fixed quotas for voice, data or SMS.
Vodafone is using 1800 MHz band for the 4G services.
Just a few days back, Airtel in a statement had also promised more interconnect points for Jio.
The operator has promised to roll out 4G services across West Bengal over the next few months.
Built on 1800 MHz band, Vodafone India claims that this service will enable its customers to access high speed internet across different devices such as Mi-Fi & dongles.
