Vi rolls out entry-level recharge plan of Rs 99: Here’s what it offers – Times of India

Vodafone Idea (Vi) has rolled out a new entry-level recharge plan for its prepaid users. The telecom operator has introduced a recharge plan of Rs 99 which is available across the country.
Vi Rs 99 prepaid plan
Under the Rs 99 prepaid plan, Vodafone Idea is offering 200MB of data and talk time of Rs 99. The service provider will be charging 2.5 paise per second for calls. The plan comes with a validity of 28 days. The users will not get the facility of free SMS as part of this plan. The company claims that the Rs 99 plan is the minimum recharge plan and it is introduced to maintain connectivity. Users can purchase this new plan from the Vi website and app.

“Catering to the affordability of consumers, Vi continues to take measures to offer the best in class mobile services at most attractive price points. We invite mobile users and non-users to join the high speed Vi network at just Rs. 99 and continue enjoying the benefits of mobile connectivity in the digital era. This will not just drive inclusivity but also enable more users to enter the digital bandwagon,” said the company.
Along with the Rs 99 prepaid plan the company has also announced that it will offer unlimited high-speed nighttime data to the users of the Rs 249 plan and above. The nighttime data will be available from 12 am to 6 am.

Recently, it was reported that telecom companies may increase mobile tariffs this year. Mobile companies are likely to increase tariffs by the middle of 2023. “With 5G related ARPU (average revenue per user) uplift likely to be insignificant in near future, 4G prepaid tariff hike remains the most important ARPU lever for telcos. We see higher probability of 4G prepaid tariff hikes in mid-2023,” told brokerage firm IIFL Securities in a report. It further added that pushing tariff hikes closer to the 2024 elections raises the risk of political backlash.
The service providers are expected to increase the price of both prepaid and postpaid plans. To recall, the telecom companies announced the last tariff hike in November 2021.
