Vodafone ₹458 and ₹509 prepaid plans revised: Here's what you get now

Vodafone has updated its two plans to take on Jio and Airtel. However, after 30 days, subscribers have to buy new data packs or plans to enjoy mobile internet services.

Airtel at Rs 509 offers 1 GB daily data, free voice calls, free roaming and 100SMS per day.

Giving details of the offer, BSNL said in an emailed statement that the offer would be valid only for new GSM data subscribers who have 3G enabled smartphones.

Also, do not forget to check out a list of all other packs that offer 1GB 4G data daily. Interestingly, in Odisha, Rajasthan and Haryana circles, both the Rs. 458 and Rs. 509 plans offer validity of 84 days, which essentially leaves the latter redundant. Similarly, Rs 349 and Rs 429 plans will get 1GB data per day with 54 days and 81 days validity, respectively. Apart from this, customers also get access to the Vodafone Play app.

The Rs. 458 plan offered 70-day validity till recently, but is now valid for 84 days. It also launched four plans with 1.5GB data per day starting at Rs. 199.

In comparison to Airtel, Reliance Jio with its Rs. 398 pack offers 1.5GB high-speed 4G data per day (after 1.5GB Jio offers unlimited data at 64Kbps). The new move appears to be a strategic decision to compete against that is already offering cheap unlimited voice call packs in India.

Vodafone offers 1GB 4G/3G data per day at Rs 509. Jio has changed all plans and now started offering extra data with extra validity. This means users will get 84GB of data during the validity period, up from 70GB. The validity of Jio's Rs. 398 pack is also 70 days.

Newcomer Jio continued to steadily climb in terms of market share, taking it to 13.08%, up from 12.39% in October, 11.72% in September and 11.19% in August, as per data released by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) Thursday.
