Vodafone slashes roaming rates pan-India
Advertisement
#1
Telecom services provider Vodafone Essar on Tuesday said it has slashed roaming rates for pre- and post-paid customers across the country under two schemes -- Travel Plan and Ticket Plan, becoming the latest entrant in the ongoing tariff war.

Under the Travel Plan, customers can avail roaming services at a rate of 70 paise per minute, while the Ticket Plan would offer 1.5 paise per second billing, a release issued here said.

These plans will be valid when customers latch on to the Vodafone network while roaming in the country, it added.

Pre-paid users can buy the Travel Plan and the Ticket Plan by recharging with Rs 61 and Rs 62 bonus cards respectively. These plans have validity of 365 days from the date of recharge. However, the retail price of bonus cards could vary from circle to circle, the company said.

Post-paid clients can also opt for the Rs 299 Travel Plan or the Rs 299 Ticket Plan for the new per minute and per second roaming tariffs, respectively.

In addition to the 70 paise per minute national roaming rate, the Rs 299 Travel Plan offers a rate of 50p/minute for local & STD calls. It also offers 175 minutes of free talk- time on local & STD calls per month.

Operators resorting to per second billing has fuelled a tariff war in the industry. Telecom major Bharti Airtel had said that operators are resorting to "predatory pricing" and requested regulator TRAI to look into the issue.
