A day after Airtel hiked its pre-paid tariff plans, the Vodafone India Limited has too jumped in to increase its pre-paid tariff plans. Justifying the price hike, Airtel pointed that it is necessary to roll out 5G in the country. The Sunil Bharati Mittal-owned telecom service provider also asserted that the basic pack should at least be priced at ₹300.
