Vodafone launches Rs 458 and Rs 509 Recharge Plans To Counter Jio

Vodafone has propelled a Rs 458 and Rs 509 plan both of which incorporates unlimited local and STD calls, free roaming, 100 SMS for each day and 1 GB of 4G data consistently. It is quite likely that Vodafone will be making these plans available to a wider range of users in the coming weeks. Under the 459 plan, it offers 1GB data per day with 100 SMS and unlimited calling without any daily FUP limit for the period of 84 days. The Rs 458 plan comes with 70 days of validity while Rs 509 plan comes with 84 days of validity. Reliance Jio, too, has a Rs. 999 tariff, which gives users 60GB data with unlimited calling, SMS and roaming for 90 days. This means that if your calling exceeds the set limit then you will be charged by the operator.

Chinese handset maker OPPO on Monday announced a partnership with telecom operator Reliance Jio to offer more data benefits to its smartphone users. Like the Rs 309 and Rs 399 recharge plans, this Jio recharge plan also comes with unlimited SMSes, Jio noted. The plan comes with a 70 day validity, though it has similar benefits as the Rs 509 plan.

Any customer who buys any of the smartphone of Oppo's F1s, A33F, A37F, A37Fw, A57 and A71 will get an additional 4G data of 10GB when you will get a recharge done of Rs 309 or above.

Telecom giant Reliance Jio has been offering some incredible benefits to its users since it has kept its feet in the industry. Vodafone's plan also includes free subscription of Vodafone Play.

Under the plans, Airtel customers will be able to carry forward up to 200 GB of their unused data to next billing cycle and check its status on MyAirtel app. This plan too offers unlimited local and national calls on any number and unlimited national roaming. The plan lets you make up to 250 minutes of calls per day and 1,000 minutes per week for free.
