Vodafone slashes 2G rates by 80%
Rates currently applicable in select regions of Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh Karnataka and Chhattisgarh only. Plans to roll out new rates across the country in a phased manner.
After learning that roaming charges aren’t going away completely, you’ll be pleased to know, at least if you’re already a Vodafone customer, that the network has slashed its 2G rates by 80%, to 2p/10KB.
While the rates are still only applicable in Karnataka, west Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh, as per this report, the company plans to soon roll out the rates nationally in a phased manner.
In a statement reported here, the company explained its decision. It said, “The rate cut from 10p/10KB to 2p/10KB will make Internet access affordable for customers who use mobile Internet in a limited way.”
The company said this rate would be applicable for all pre-paid and post-paid customers using 2G network on a pay-as-you-go basis in these circles. Currently, even Reliance’s pay-as-you-go charges are 10p/10KB.
