Idea, Vodafone cut unlimited pack price to Rs 150 range

Idea Offers 'Unlimited' Calls, 1GB Data for 14 Days at Rs. 109

Idea prepaid plan 109 is listed on the Idea official website and My Idea Application.

Under the new Rs 109 plan, Idea is offering unlimited voice calling benefits, along with 1GB of 4G or 3G data every day.

Idea has updated the details of the Rs 109 plan on its website, revealing that this plan offers 14 days validity, "unlimited" voice calls, 100 SMSs per day and 1GB 4G/3G data. This Vodafone prepaid recharge plan also offers Local + STD unlimited voice calls for 84 Days. The company is now offering 1GB of 4G data per day as against 1GB of data for 28 days earlier.

Aditya Birla's telecom giant Idea Cellular has announced a blockbuster prepaid Rs 109 plan for its users. The plan is valid for 28 days from the date of recharge. Eventually, the rivals of Reliance Jio have also started revising their prepaid plans to offer similar benefits.

Four years later in Sochi, that was reduced to 3-1 in the semifinal. "I'd like to have that second one back", Dalton said. It marked the first time since the 1994 Games that Canada fielded a team that wasn't made up of NHLers.

The Rs 109 plan is now available for only a few markets like Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Haryana, Bihar and Delhi NCR. The pack also includes 100 SMSes per day. The voice calling benefit is limited to 250 minutes per day and 1000 minutes per week, very much like the other Idea Cellular plans. Idea's all-new Rs 109 plan comes days after the launch of Rs 93 prepaid recharge plan. While the plan does offer data and calling offer, sadly there is no SMS benefit.

Both operators have cut the price of the cheapest unlimited voice and data pack to the Rs 150 range from Rs 200 range, bringing them into direct competition with Reliance Jio. Users also get 1GB per day 4G/3G data for a validity of 28 days.

Vodafone doesn't offer a bouquet of low-priced prepaid plans like its rivals.

Under its 199 scheme, Airtel offers data at Rs 5.08 per GB compared to Rs 5.32 per GB charged by Idea. While Idea Cellular is giving just half validity as compared to Airtel and Jio.
