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."
