Vodafone Idea Increases Prepaid Plan Prices, New Packs to Be Available Starting December 3

Europe

Vodafone Idea on Sunday announced the increased tariffs for prepaid services that will go into effect on December 3. The telecom operator has been dealing with massive losses and posted a record quarterly loss of Rs. 50,922 crores in third quarter of this year, biggest in Indian corporate history. Vodafone Idea Limited (VIL) is hoping that increased prepaid tariffs will help it boost the declining average revenue per user (ARPU) as the company struggles to survive in the country. Vodafone Idea isn’t going to be the only telco to increase the prepaid plan cost. Airtel and Reliance Jio are also set to announce increased prepaid tariffs this month.

“In line with its commitment to provide customers with simple, convenient and affordable products, VIL has curated an optimum range of feature rich plans for both voice and data,” the telecom operator said in a statement. “Customers can avail their benefits by just selecting the plan best suited to their specific needs and continue to enjoy seamless connectivity across India.”

As mentioned, the new Vodafone Idea prepaid tariffs will go live at 00:00hrs on December 3.
