Vodafone Launches New Affordable 3G Tariff Plans In India

Last month, Idea Cellular and Airtel reduced the price of their exciting 3G plans. Now, Vodafone has finally joined the bandwagon. The company has already reduced the price of its 3G plans for postpaid users. However, the Vodafone pre-paid users had to pay a huge amount to access their 3G services. Following the price drop by Idea and Airtel in India, Vodafone went ahead and reduced the 3G tariff plans by up to 80%. You heard it right! Vodafone recently announced new 3G plans which are applicable for both pre-paid and post-paid subscribers across India.

Sanjoy Mukerji, Chief Commercial Officer, Vodafone India, said:
“We, at Vodafone, believe in offering services that add value to the lives of our customers through constant focus on meeting their needs. With the introduction of these plans, we aim at establishing a foundation for providing a 3G data plan for everyone, making it affordable to the masses in the country. Also, users who shy away from trying 3G services due to prohibitive costs can now experience services without the fear of a bill shock. The 2p/10kb PAYG & no additional charges for roaming are the first of its kind in the Indian market. We expect this offer to be well received by the customers as it will act as a strong value proposition for data users.”

The new data plans start from Rs.25 for 25 MB data usage and go up to Rs.1599 for 12 GB of data usage. For any usage beyond the mentioned data usage on each plan, the customers will be charged at the rate of 2p/10kb.

Vodafone Rolls Out New 3G Plans For Its Postpaid Users

Over the last one month or so, nearly all the major 3G operators in India slashed their 3G rates by a good margin. Vodafone had also slashed its 3G tariff rates but only for its prepaid customers.

However, beginning today, Vodafone has rolled out new 3G postpaid plans along with increasing the free data usage for its existing plans. The new 3G tariff rates are pretty well priced, and will definitely help in increasing the 3G adoption rate in India.

Below are the new 3G plans from Vodafone India for its postpaid customers -:

  • Rs 375 – 1.5GB free data usage
  • Rs 650 – 3GB of free data usage
  • Rs 750 – 4GB of free data usage
  • Rs 850 – 5GB of free data usage
  • Rs 1250 – 8GB of free data usage
Post the ‘free’ data usage, users will be charged at 2p/10KB.  These new postpaid plans come into effective immediately in most regions of India. Please keep in mind that these plans might not be available in all regions of India, so please confirm them from Vodafone customer care.
