Until a few months ago, Vodafone Idea (Vi) offered users a “double data deal” with its select prepaid plans. The telco had prepaid plans in its portfolio, offering up to 4 GB of daily data. None of the other telecom operators offered such a plan to its users. This had made Vodafone Idea a unique player among all operators. Not that it’s not unique now with the benefits of Vi Hero Unlimited in its portfolio, but the 4GB daily data plans were really good and an attractive deal from the company.
Vodafone Idea 4GB Daily Data Plans Deleted, Users Want It Back
TelecomTalk launched a poll on Twitter. Only 222 votes were received, which isn’t a huge number, but it still gives a glimpse of what people expect from telecom operators. Users voted they missed the company’s prepaid dual data plans.
However, Vi had to remove the offer from her plans as it was seriously affecting her earnings. People who had 4GB daily data plans from the company weren’t going to pick up the 4G data vouchers because they had enough data in the first place. What’s more, these plans weren’t even expensive, which meant that the telco offered users a lot while charging them very little, which affected the average revenue per user (ARPU).
The sole purpose of the prepaid price increases announced and implemented a few months ago was to increase the overall ARPU for all telecom operators. So it wouldn’t have made sense for Vi to continue with the dual data offering.
Anyway, as part of the benefits of Vi Hero Unlimited, users get unique offers from the company. Things like Data Delights, Weekend Data Rollover, and Binge All Night make Vodafone Idea prepaid plans a great option. All Vi plans from Rs 299 and above come with Vi Hero Unlimited benefits.
