In a move to counter Reliance Jio’s free data offer, Vodafone has announced a new Double Data offer that effectively cuts the price of 4G data for prepaid users by 50 percent. Under the new offer, Vodafone 4G users in Delhi circle will get twice the mobile data for recharge values higher than Rs. 255.
So, Vodafone prepaid 4G users will now get 2GB of data for the Rs. 255 recharge, instead of the 1GB they used to get earlier. Similarly, recharges of Rs. 459 and Rs. 559 will entail 6GB and 8GB respectively, rather than the standard 3GB and 4GB.
Apoorva Mehrotra, Business Head, Delhi-NCR, Vodafone India, said, “Vodafone is delighted with the response to Vodafone SuperNet4G and happy to announce a Double Data bonanza to all our 4G customers. We are confident that this value offering will further enhance mobile internet experience for our customers and will enable them to experience the world of Vodafone SuperNet4G to the fullest.”
Reliance Jio had announced last week that it is extending its Jio Welcome Offer benefits by three months as part of the Jio Happy New Offer. These Reliance Jio benefits include free unlimited voice calls, 4G data, SMSs, and bundled Jio apps.
India’s biggest telecom operator Airtel has also introduced two new packs offering unlimited local and STD voice calls, while Aircel has introduced a separate plan that provides free voice calls across the country.
