Vodafone Idea has doubled the daily data limit for its Rs. 449 prepaid plan and is offering 1 year free Zee5 Premium subscription along with the recharge.
- The Rs. 449 plan daily data has been increased from 2 GB to 4 GB by Vodafone Idea.
- The company has introduced a Binge All Night feature.
- The Rs. 449 prepaid plan also offers the weekend data rollover facility.
Despite the stressed financial situation of the Vodafone Idea, the company has been rolling out new freebies and offers for its customers in order to retain them as well as gain new subscribers. With just four players Reliance Jio, Airtel, Vodafone Idea, and BSNL remaining in India’s ultra-competitive telecom sector, each company is trying its best to retain and gain new subscribers.
In this fight for subscribers, Vodafone Idea has rolled out a new Rs. 449 prepaid plan. The company has doubled the daily data benefit previously offered under the plan i.e. from 2 GB to 4 GB. Along with this, unlimited calls and daily 100 SMS are also available for the subscriber.
Along with this plan comes a one-year subscription to the premium video streaming app Zee5 Premium. This is one new benefit that the subscribers did not have before in this plan. Earlier the Rs. 699 recharge plan of Vodafone Idea used to come with a Zee5 Premium.
Not only this, but the Rs 299 prepaid plan from Vodafone Idea now also comes with a ZEE5 Premium subscription which is valid for an entire year.
The Binge All Night feature has been added to this plan of Vi, which allows users to run free internet data from 12 midnight to 6 am. This feature can be especially useful especially for people who like to binge-watch new OTT series or movies late at night.
During this, any internet data used by the subscriber will not be deducted from their daily data limit i.e. 4 GB data. The total data benefit in this plan would be 224GB in the entire validity period of 56 days. Also, this plan has the facility of weekend data rollover. No other telecom company be it Reliance Jio or Airtel is offering such a feature.
Vodafone’s share price has been falling for the last few trading sessions. This has raised concern about its financial health and its ability to continue operating in the face of huge debt.
On August 3, it was reported that Aditya Birla Group Chairman Kumar Mangalam Birla had offered to hand over his stake in the telecom firm to the government or any entity the government considered worthy.
