Following in Airtel's footsteps, Vodafone India has launched RED Together postpaid plan, allowing users to form a group and make a single rental payment.
The offer provides guaranteed savings up to 20 per cent on the bill along with an additional benefit of 20GB data. Users can apply for RED Together postpaid plan with RED Basic plan which starts from Rs 399.
This latest offer is akin to Airtel Family plan that was launched earlier in July this year, enabling postpaid users to create a 'Family' of up to 5 members and share benefits of the plan with them, including reduced rental, data sharing and a single converged billing.
The feature that marks a difference between both the schemes is that the Vodafone Red Together plan is not restricted to just family members. The plan allows user to add members other than family.
Vodafone Red Together plan also has a 'Data rollover' feature provides users the benefit to carry forward unused data up to maximum of 200GB, while Airtel Family plan provides the same service upto 500GB of unused data.
