Vodafone mobile Internet browsing plans?

Since I knew that there are Rs.98 Internet browsing plans in both Airtel and Aircel, I went on to check if there is something similar with Vodafone. Unfortunately I couldn’t find one. What’s even sad is that Vodafone users will have to pay for browsing the Vodafone Live portal and for which, data plans exists, sigh (See Update below).

There is a great variation in the tariff of Vodafone Live portal browsing from circle to circle too. For example, in the Hyderabad circle where I stay, Vodafone has a Rs.98 per month plan for prepaid users with which I get 2GB of data free (note that this can only be used for browsing the Vodafone Live portal).

In other circles, say in Mumbai, the highest plan for prepaid users is Rs.99 per month which gives Unlimited usage of Vodafone Live portal (satisfying 60Mb per day fair usage limit).

In Chennai, I’m only left with Rs.95 per month plan where I get 50MB of free data.

Delhi and NCR: No plans for prepaid (at least, I don’t see any) but there is on Rs.200 and Rs.500 monthly rental plan for post paid users which gives 100MB and 500MB of free data respectively.

Tariffs are extremely hefty for post paid users in other circles too. In Hyderabad (AP circle), for Rs.699 plan, I get a mere 1GB of data and that too at the dreadful GPRS speeds.

We saw Vodafone 3G USB sticks earlier that are being advertised lately but only give 2G speeds, for now.

I think it’s vitally important and high time for Vodafone to introduce plans such as  Airtel’s Prepaid Internet plan of Rs.98 per month, just to get their users ready for the 3G generation.

What Airtel has done by bringing back the Rs.98 plan this year is build a solid ‘data services’ user base before launching the 3G services so that they don’t have to face the dire circumstances that BSNL is facing now.

Update June 2013: Vodafone has prepaid and post paid mobile data packs too. Most packs are priced very similar to airtel. A 1 GB 2G data pack comes for around Rs.125 a month. But what had changed is the rapid decrease in ‘Pay as you go’ tariff. Instead of charging 10p/10KB, Vodafone now just charges 2ps/10KB. For those on data packs, this pay as you go tariff will be applicable after they complete their allotted data till they renew their data pack (which you can chose to discontinue, of course).

    Guys I’m fully impressed by aircel 2g in delhi ncr, i’m using it for last 1 year, i recharged with rs98 and got unlimited browsing and downloading for 1 month, speed 20-40kbps. Its point to think that we got UNLIMITED BROWSING just from 98 rupees for 1 month…

  11. Vodafone has very less plan and facility offered. We hope it will be better if you introduce more plans in internet such as unlimited browsing. Also talk time plans, I really felt so frustrated when i checked for the internet plans and talk time offers.

    Now i really feel its better to move from Vodafone to air tel the best which is prescribed by most of people.

    With thanks

    • First of all, it’s 2GB, not 2MB.
      I’m assuming that you are not confused between main account balance and dedicated internet account balance. After completing 2GB, your browsing tariff will be the default charges (most operators now are collecting 20ps/30KB, check with Vodafone). If you continue using Internet after 2GB, the balance will be deducted from the main account, hence you might be seeing negative balance.
      You can check your internet account balance from time to time and stop using Internet after you complete 2GB or recharge again with Rs.98 after completing 2GB.

  39. VODAFONE SHUD SHUT ITS SHOP IN INDIA AS ITS THE WORST THING THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED IN THE MOBILE PHONE ERA.
    THE PEOPLE AND THE COMPANY SUCKS… THEY ARE IN COMPETENT PEOPLE AND ARE TRUE LOOSERS… THEY CAN MATCH COMPETITION AND THEY QUALITY OF SERVICE IS VERY VERY POOR.
    WHENEVER I SEE THEIR TV ADDVERTISEMENT I CAN ONLY THINK OF VODAFONE WHEN I SEE THAT DOG AND I CAN SEE THAT DOG CHASING THE WALLET OF ITS CUSTOMERS TO PREY ON IT WITHOUT GIVING ANYTHING.
    THE DATA PLANS OFFERED BY VODAFONE IS ABT 5 TIMES COSTLY TO WHAT AIRTEL IS OFFERING AND THE SPEED OF AIRTEL CONNECTION IS GOOD. I AM A 10 YEAR OLD USER OF VODAFONE AND TODAY I M FEELING CHEATED…
    I MAILED THEM ABOUT 10 TIMES FOR MY PROBLEM AND THEY KEPT DRAGGING ME WITH EXCUSES FOR ABT 1 MONTH, SAYING THEY R WORKING OUT ON A PLAN AND FINALLY AFTER A MONTH OR SO THEY SAY THEY R HELPLESS AND CANT OFFER ANY THING BUT WHAT THEY ALREADY HAVE A 5 TIMES COSTLY PLAN THAN AIRTEL..
    ITS MY REQUEST TO ALL U NEW MOBILE SEEKERS NEVER EVER MAKE A MISTAKE OF OPTING FOR VODAFONE, BECZ TRUST ME ITS DIFFICULT TO CHANGE NUMBER BECZ OF SUCH SILLY MOBILE OPERATOR COMPANIES LIKE VODAFONE.
    I HAVE SUFFICEINT PROOF OF ALL THE MAILS SENT BY ME TO VODAFONE AND THEIR REPLIES VISA- VERSA. SO IF ANY ONE EVEN WANTS TO SHOW IT I CAN EVEN SHOW IT TO THEM.
