Telecom giant Vodafone India has on June 19 cut the rates of its 3G tariffs by up to 80 percent. With the latest cut in the rates the telecom company has become the fourth service provider after Bharti Airtel, Reliance Communications and Idea Cellular.

The new plans of Vodafone 3G start from Rs. 25 for 25 MB data usage and go up to Rs. 1,599 for 12 GB data usage. For the pre-paid, pay as you go users, the rate has been cut by 80 percent to 2 paise per 10 KB.

Apart from the reduction in the rates, the company has also announced that there will be no additional charges for roaming data usage. The company in a statement said, “Additionally, Vodafone will now allow its customers to use data from their bundle package while on-net roaming across any location in India without any additional charge”.

Last month the telecom operators like Idea Cellular, Reliance Communications and Bharti Airtel announced the reduction of their high speed 3G rates. Sanjay Mukherjee, the Vodafone India Chief Commercial Officer said, “With the introduction of these plans, we aim at establishing a foundation for providing a 3G data plan for everyone, making it affordable to the masses in the country”. More companies are joining the 3G rates war in the country to attract more customers.
