The leading telecom operators seem to be nudging ‘tariff war’ by introducing new plans to attract consumers. Over the past few days, Airtel, Idea has come up with several plans with lucrative benefits in the schemes. The major telecom operator Vodafone joining the bandwagon has launched new RED postpaid plans- RED Traveler, RED International and RED Signature.
The Vodafone RED plans start at Rs. 499 and include data rollover. All these plans bundle free unlimited local and STD calls. The new RED plans also add free incoming and outgoing calls on national roaming. There is free Magzter subscription as well whereby users can Trchoose from a collection of 3500+ magazines free of cost for four months. By purchasing any of these new RED plans, postpaid users can get RED Shield Device Security that will provide protection of the smartphone against damage or theft free of cost for four months.
These plans offer Data rollover feature that will allow users to carry forward unused data up to 200GB to the next billing cycle. Vodafone RED Traveler L (Rs. 999), RED International R (Rs. 1299), RED International L (Rs. 1999) and RED Signature (Rs. 2999) includes free Netflix subscription. The free monthly Netflix subscription varies depending on the type of plan you choose for instance- the RED Traveler L plan will offer 2 months of Netflix subscription worth Rs. 1000, while RED International L plan will give you 3 months of Netflix subscription worth Rs. 1500. Further, RED International and RED Signature plans offer free ISD minutes to USA, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore.
Notably, Vodafone’s new RED Traveler R plan directly counters with Airtel’s refreshed Infinity plan that was just launched yesterday. The RED Traveler R plan that costs Rs. 499 carries similar benefits like the Infinity plan, offering its postpaid users 20GB free Internet quota, free incoming and outgoing calls on national roaming. The RED Traveler R plan has data rollover feature, free access to latest movies and live TV with Vodafone Play. Interestingly, Airtel’s Infinity plan also bundles data rollover, free subscription to Wynk Music and Airtel TV that offer LIVE TV and myriad of shows and movies.
While these two postpaid plans fairly seem to be affordable, if you are a bit tight on budget, Jio’s Rs. 409 plan might help save some money. The plan packs same benefits like Airtel’s refreshed Infinity or Vodafone RED Traveler R plan, but you will have to pay a security deposit of Rs. 500 to purchase this plan.
