Vodafone recently introduced a new plan, offering unlimited data for 84 days with a cap of 1GB per day and unlimited free voice calls (local, STD and roaming) across all networks for recharge of Rs 496. The plan earlier provided users 1 GB of 3G/4G data for a period of 28 days along with 1000 free minutes of voice calling per week.


It provides 1.5GB of 4G data and 100 SMS per day apart from unlimited voice calls. Once the quota is exceeded, the speed of data is likely to reduce to 64kbps.

As part of this plan, customers get unlimited calling for both local and STD numbers as well as free outgoing on national roaming. Moreover, subscribers who opt for the new recharge plan from Idea's official website, or from the MyIdea app, will be eligible for an additional 1GB of data at no extra cost. Once the limit is exhausted, then users will be charged 30 paise per minute.

According to reports, the plan doesn't have a daily limit on the data usage which means users can either consume 300GB data in just a single day or use it across the validated 360 days. "With our Rs 179 recharge we will enable customers to continue their conversations non-stop", Sashi Shankar, chief marketing officer, Idea Cellular said.
