The Vodafone 344 Prepaid Recharge plan offers its prepaid subscribers unlimited voice calling (all network Local + STD) and 1GB 4G mobile internet data per day with a validity of 28 days. Under this “Rs. 344 Recharge Plan” special recharge scheme, Vodafone prepaid subscribers recharging with Rs. 344 can avail free unlimited voice calling to any network and any region in the country, along with 1GB of 3G or 4G (depending on the circle) mobile data per day for a period of 28 days, totalling 28GB 3G/4G data for the period.

Vodafone subscribers will be able to recharge the new Rs. 344 prepaid recharge scheme via all Vodafone Stores, Mini stores and multi brand retail outlets across the country.

With the launch of its new Rs. 344 Prepaid Recharge offer, the British telecom operator is aggressively going to compete against its rival telecom operators — Reliance Jio, Idea Cellular, Bharti Airtel and others. Needless to say, in the Indian telecom industry, the “disruptive” entry of Reliance Jio is a great momentum behind the new-age price war. Last month, Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio revised its “Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan” offer with a new Rs. 399 recharge pack and Rs. 509 recharge pack. Under Reliance Jio’s new Dhan Dhana Dhan offer, Jio Prime members recharging with Rs. 399 can avail free unlimited voice calling, SMSes, along with 1GB 4G mobile data per day for a period of 84 days (total 84GB data). On the other hand, Rs. 509 recharge pack offers its Prime subscribers free unlimited voice calling, SMSes, and 2GB 4G mobile data per day for a period of 56 days (total 56GB data), instead of 84 days under the earlier offer.
The new announcement comes just twelve days after Vodafone announced a new First Recharge Coupon (FRC) 445 for the Maharashtra & Goa subscribers. The First Recharge Coupon (FRC) 445 offers its new prepaid customers unlimited voice calling to any network and any region in the country, along with 1GB of 3G or 4G (depending on the circle) mobile data per day for a period of 84 days, totalling 84GB 3G/4G data for the period.
A few days ago, Vodafone also launched an affordable First Recharge Coupon (FRC) 244 for its new 4G pre-paid customers. Under the “FRC 244” special recharge, new Vodafone subscribers recharging with Rs. 244 can avail free unlimited voice calling to the same network and any region in the country, along with 1GB of 3G/4G data per day for a period of 70 days, totalling 70GB 3G/4G data for the period. This scheme will be valid for a period of 70 days on the first recharge with the amount of Rs. 244, and from the second recharge, the validity span will be reduced to 35 days with the same amount.
Indian telecom giant Bharti Airtel has recently launched an affordable recharge plan, called “Rs. 399 Recharge Plan” for their prepaid subscribers. The new Airtel Rs. 399 Recharge plan offers its subscribers free unlimited voice calling to any network and any region (Local + STD) in the country, along with 1GB of 3G or 4G (depending on the circle) mobile data per day for a period of 84 days on a recharge of just Rs. 399.
