Vodafone’s Rs 16 Recharge Gives Users Unlimited Hourly Data
Vodafone, facing the onslaught from Jio and Airtel, has come up with a new offer for its prepaid customers. It is also a rather unique and innovative plan, which may not be useful to all consumers but could prove to be particularly useful for some.
The new plan offers unlimited 3G or 4G data to prepaid Vodafone consumers at a recharge of Rs 16. Vodafone says in this plan, the unlimited really stands for unlimited.
Now, the utility of the plan is quite interesting. Consumers can recharge as many times as they want. This means they can recharge 24 times in a day. And they can download unlimited data that day. This opens up so many possibilities for consumers.
For example, if the connection quality and speed is good, this means prepaid Vodafone users can theoretically stream some nice HD movies on Netflix every weekend at fairly affordable prices. Or they can use that Rs 16 per hour for something important that may require better and faster internet connectivity than what most broadband services in India provide.
Vodafone said that it also offering unlimited local voice calls (within vodafone) with one hour validity for Rs. 7.
“With SuperHour, you can use and download as much data as you like for one hour at a fixed, nominal price. Moreover, with unrestricted repeat purchase, you can make every hour SuperHour,” said Sandeep Kataria, chief commercial officer at Vodafone India. “Customers can also buy the SuperHour pack for making unlimited local Vodafone to Vodafone voice calls for only Rs 7.”
Vodafone said that the new offer will be available from January 7 to customers across all circles by January 9.
The rate may vary across circles, said the company. The offer is not available in Bihar Jharkhand, Madhya PradeshChhattisgarh, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh Jammu and Kashmir, and Andhra Pradesh Telangana. Under the scheme, 2G customers will get unlimited data for Rs 5.
The latest Vodafone offers comes days after the company changed the Red plans, which it offers to postpaid customers, so that they are more attractive to users. The changes were aimed at taking on Jio, which is still free, and Airtel that has revamped its Infinity Plans.
