The company aims to provide better and more affordable service to its customers with Reliance Jio round the corner.


Vodafone India has recently announced the slashing of data rates of its 3G and 4G Internet packs for pre-paid customers. The company has also offered upto 67 per cent more benefits for the same price with an aim of providing additional value to its customers and thus, enable them to enjoy their mobile Internet experience.

Vodafone, in a statement, said that the move will make the Internet more affordable for customers who use mobile Internet in a limited way and encourage first time users to come online.
