Telecom operator Vodafone India has launched a new data plan for its Indian customers visiting Japan and Saudi Arabia, allowing them special internet access in these countries. The new offer is said to have been introduced due to healthy demand for other similar offers that had been introduced earlier.
In a statement, Vodafone said that the new pack has been introduced as many of its Indian customers preferred to take a 60 percent discount package on international tariffs which was introduced in the month of June. The company said, “The unlimited international roaming data package offer is one more customer-friendly offering from Vodafone India, enabling customers to use data on mobile services while travelling abroad”.
Vodafone has introduced packages ranging from Rs. 1,499 for three days, Rs. 2,499 for five days and Rs. 3,499 for seven days. When the subscribers are travelling, Vodafone data services will be provided by the company’s partners, Softbank’s network in Japan and Mobility’s network in Saudi Arabia.
Sunil Sood, the Chief Operating Officer of Vodafone India said that they have noticed an increase in the demand for data usage while on international roaming and the latest international roaming data plans help in bridging the gap in demand. The statement from the company also said that it operated across the country with more than 153 million customers.
