Vodafone Idea Will Not Hesitate in Raising Tariff Prices Ahead of Airtel and Jio

Back in December 2019, Vodafone Idea (Vi) was the first telecom operator to raise prepaid tariff prices which was followed by Bharti Airtel and Reliance Jio as well.

A new Livemint report now states that Vi will not ‘shy away’ from raising tariff prices again first ahead of the top two telcos.

Ravinder Takkar, the CEO of the company, opined that the ‘current price levels are unsustainable.’

He also added the industry should look at Rs 300 ARPU in the long run.

Alongside Vodafone Idea CEO, Bharti Airtel CEO Gopal Vittal, also stated that the “industry cannot continue to function at the current prices for voice and data services.”

Since we last saw the tariff hike a year ago, the next one could be right around the corner. In addition to that, the Trai could soon set a floor price for voice and data in the country.

They very well they have lost the race now. It’s only between bharti and ambani now so ache daam pe nikal do sb maal aur furr ho jao as simple as that. Lekin this deal will clearly kill the competitors in market.

Me too. And I’m still getting good speed on Jio.
So happy with it.
VI has insane speeds in many places. Just try once as well. I recently recharged and got blown away. 30-50 Mbps even in evenings in IPL time.

I have VI, Airtel and MTNL sims also. Normally do just validity recharges on VI. But have used data on it occasionally at places where Jio had problems.
