Previously know as Idea and now a part of Vodafone Idea Limited, the Idea Cellular has launched a new prepaid plan for Rs 159. The idea Rs 159 plan is launched just a month after Airtel announced a new prepaid recharge plan with similar benefits at the same price.
The Idea cellular’s Rs 159 prepaid plan comes with a validity of 28 days and offers unlimited calling and 1 GB data per day. The total data amount 28GB during the entire validity period. Both Vodafone and Idea are throwing plans for in and around the same prices. Both the brands are working on smoothening the edges after the merge, hence coming up with similar plans.
Further, the idea Rs 159 plan offers unlimited local, STD calling and national roaming but with a capping. The plan users will only be able to make voice calls for 250 minutes per day with a total of 1000 minutes for a week. The prepaid plan also offers 100 SMS which will be available during the validity period.
The latest prepaid plan is a segmented plan which means it’s only available in select circles across the country and is also limited to a specific set of customers.
Jio is also offering a Rs 149 prepaid plan similar to Idea’s Rs 159 plan, with unlimited calling, 1.5GB of 4G data per day and 100 SMS for 28 days. For the same price i.e. Rs 159, Airtel is also offering 1GB data per day, unlimited calls and 100 SMS for the period of 28 days.
