Vodafone India has announced new 3G data plans for its subscribers. It is noteworthy, that other major telecom operators such as Reliance, Airtel, Aircel and Idea have already announced their revised tariffs and now Vodafone is following suit.
Vodafone's 3G plans start from Rs. 25 for 25MB data usage and
go up to Rs. 1,599 for 12GB of data usage. For any usage beyond the
stipulated data usage on each plan, the customers will be charged at the
rate of 2p/10kb.
The UK based telecom service provider also claims that its 'Pay As You Go' (PAYG) rate for prepaid
customers is now the most competitive in the market. Now prepaid users will have to pay 2p/10kb, which is an 80 percent reduction from the
existing rate. Additionally, Vodafone will now allow its customers to
use data from their bundle package while on-net roaming across any
location in India without any additional charge.
Commenting on these plans, Sanjoy Mukerji, Chief Commercial Officer said, "Users who shy away from trying 3G services due to
prohibitive costs can now experience services without the fear of a bill
shock. We expect our PAYG offer to be well received by the customers as
it will act as a strong value proposition for data users."
