  • Vodafone has announced two new recharge plans for its prepaid users - Vodafone 195 and Vodafone 181.
  • These two plans have been launched as Bonus Cards. 
  • These plans will be competing with Jio, who had quietly updated its Rs 149 plan earlier this month to bring to users unlimited data. 

Vodafone India has announced two new plans to attract users and combat its arch rivals in the now-fiercely-competitive telecom industry.

Vodafone has announced two new recharge plans for its prepaid users - Vodafone 195 and Vodafone 181. These two plans have been launched as Bonus Card types. The former is for 2G subscribers and the latter for 2G, 3G and 4G subscribers. 

Needless to say, the new recharge plans will be competing with Jio's Rs 149 plan. The Rs 181 plan offers unlimited voice calling for all networks and also STD calls, along with unlimited 2G data with 28 days of validity period.

The Rs 195 plan brings 1GB of total mobile data along with unlimited voice calls (local and STD) for a period of 28 days. You will get 2G, 3G or 4G data, depending upon your circle. The company offers an FUP of 250 minutes (local +STD) of outgoing calls for a day and 1000 minutes for a week.

These plans will be competing with Jio. Jio had quietly updated its Rs 149 plan earlier this month to bring to users unlimited data. Previously, the prepaid plan for Rs 149 came with 2GB data with a validity period of 28 days. Post the usage of the 2GB data, users needed to buy a top-up voucher. Now, with the new update, it is offering users unlimited data at Rs 149. But, post the 2GB usage, users will get to access data at 64kbps. However, note that the speed post FUP lower than what it offers otherwise at 128kbps.
