Following the decision by Reliance Jio, the country’s largest user base telecom company, to increase the prices of its prepaid and postpaid plans, Vodafone has also increased the mobile tariff. Jio was the first to increase the plan prices. The company has increased its rate plan by up to 25 percent. At the same time, Vodafone has made its prepaid and postpaid plans between 11 and 23 percent more expensive.

Vodafone also raised the rate

The new unlimited voice calling plan has been increased marginally. The plan, which was priced at Rs 179 for 28 days, is now priced at Rs 199 and offers 2GB data, unlimited calling and 300 SMS. Similarly, the 84-day plan, which was earlier priced at Rs 459, has now become Rs 509, in which unlimited calling and 300 SMS are available with 6GB data. For long-term users, the annual plan priced at Rs 1,799 has been revised to Rs 1,999, which includes 24GB data, unlimited calling and 300 SMS.

Increase up to 25 percent

Telecom company Reliance Jio has increased its prepaid plans by 12.5 to 25 percent. The new tariffs will come into effect from July 3. The special thing is that the new tariffs will not be applicable to existing users. Reliance Jio has announced that there has been no increase in tariffs for Jio Bharat and Jio Phone users. Reliance Jio has increased the prices of all its 19 plans, out of which 17 are prepaid and 2 are post plans. The special thing is that for the first time Jio increased its tariff before Airtel.

Reliance Jio Infocomm Chairman Akash M Ambani said in the statement that the launch of the new plans is a step towards driving industry innovation and green growth through investment in 5G and AI technology. According to the company’s statement, unlimited 5G data will be available on all plans of 2 GB per day and above.

Airtel also made the plan more expensive

Let us tell you that Airtel’s tariff has been increased by 11-21% on prepaid plans and 10-20% on postpaid plans. The price of its entry-level prepaid plan has been increased by 11% to Rs 199 per month, which was earlier Rs 175 per month. Last year, the base of the entry-level tariff was increased from ₹155 per month, thereby increasing the burden on consumers’ pockets by over 28% in a year. The biggest increase of 20-21% will come in the full-year validity plan which was priced at ₹2999 and will now be priced at ₹3599, and the 56-day validity plan which offers 2GB free data per day and will now be priced at ₹579, i.e. an increase of 21%.
