Telecom giant Reliance Jio has managed to dominate the telecom market. Other telecom companies are now breaking their silence by offering best possible deals for its subscribers and stay in the competition. Vodafone India announced on October 21, 2016 that it will be making the incoming calls free for the customers on national roaming. The offer will begin from Diwali 2016 for the Vodafone subscribers travelling anywhere out of their telecom circle will be able to receive incoming calls for free.
Sandeep Kataria, Director of commercial segment at Vodafone India said, “Even though outgoing charges while roaming had become comparable to home charges, consumer research has shown that incoming charges while roaming have been a hindrance to worry free usage”. The director added that the new move is a part of Vodafone’s ongoing 200 million customer celebration that provides free incoming on national roaming.
Earlier the company had said that it will double the monthly data for its subscribers on Vodafone Red plans. The company also said that the subscribers will also get free access to Vodafone Play for a limited time. Under the Vodafone Red Plan the postpaid customers are allowed to create a group of six people who share voice, SMS as well as Internet data. In recent times most of the telecom operators have offered attractive tariffs in order to keep their subscribers intact.
Meanwhile, while talking about Reliance Jio, analysts have said that Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd. might extend its free phone services to the customers till March, 2017. According to an analyst at Citi Research, the Reliance Industries management said that there are no restrictions in terms of the number of promotional offers a company can launch.
