Telecom operator Vodafone has officially launched its new postpaid Vodafone Red plans with unlimited calls and associated data benefits. With the unveiling, the company has detailed two new plans. Earlier in the month, the company introduced Vodafone Red, with four new plans offering unlimited calls and more data in a bid to combat Reliance Jio competition. And now, new additional plans of higher denominations have been introduced into the mix.
Vodafone Red now has new Rs. 1,699 and Rs. 1,999 postpaid plans. The Rs. 1,699 Red postpaid plan comes with unlimited calls on home network as well as on roaming (i.e. free outgoing calls on roaming). It also comes with 100 text messages, and 20GB of bundled 4G/ 3G data for 4G smartphone users (16GB for non-4G smartphones). The Rs. 1,999 postpaid offers all the same things but with 24GB of bundled 4G/ 3G data for 4G smartphone users (20GB for non-4G smartphones).
In few circles (like Mumbai), a new Vodafone Red Rs. 2,999 postpaid plan is also listed on the company website. This plan offers 40GB of bundled 4G/ 3G data for 4G smartphone users (30GB for non-4G smartphones), apart from the above mentioned calling and SMS benefits.
These new offerings have been added to the Rs. 499, Rs. 699, Rs. 999, and Rs. 1,299 plans launched earlier. Vodafone's Rs. 1,299 Red postpaid plan also offers all the same things as the higher denomination plans, but bundled only 12GB of 4G/ 3G data for 4G smartphone users (8GB for non-4G smartphones).
As for the Rs. 499, Rs. 699, and Rs. 999 plans, Vodafone offered 100 text messages, and unlimited national and local calls to any network. With respect to roaming, standard rates will be applicable. The Rs. 499 Vodafone Red postpaid plan offered 3GB of 3G/ 4G data for 4G handset users (1GB for non-4G smartphones). The Rs. 699 Vodafone Red postpaid plan ups the bundled 4G/ 3G data to 5GB for 4G smartphone users (2.5GB for non-4G handset users), and the Rs. 999 Vodafone Red postpaid plan offers 8GB for 4G handset users (5GB for non-4G smartphones).
Apart from this, Vodafone is offering free subscription of Vodafone Play with Red postpaid plans, and has provided a dedicated 24x7 Relationship Manager for enhanced customer service. Vodafone notes that once the data quota for all these plans is over, further data usage will be charged at 50p/MB. The company has launched Vodafone Red across India, apart from MPCG, AP&T, Bihar & Jharkhand, Jammu & Kashmir, and Himachal Pradesh.
