The telecom operator introduced the Wi-Fi Calling service in Maharashtra, Goa, and Kolkata last year. The service basically allows subscribers to make and receive voice calls on a WiFi network instead of using the existing mobile network. The telco is said to be planning to roll out Wi-Fi calling to all its subscribers in a phased manner. Telecom Talk reports that Vi WiFi calling service is now available across five circles including Delhi, and it will be expanded to other telecom circles in the coming months.

In a separate report, Vi (Vodafone-Idea) has reportedly begun offering 3GB daily data with prepaid recharge plans of Rs 249, Rs 399, and Rs 599.

To recall, Vodafone-Idea introduced a “binge all night offer” last week. The offer valid for prepaid plans of Rs 249 and above brings free unlimited data between 12 AM and 6 AM. The Vi Rs 249 prepaid plan and above already include the weekend data rollover facility, meaning the unused data will be carried forward to the weekend.
“Consumption patterns of consumer segments such as the Youth, indicate higher data consumption during night... The new initiative is also aimed at increasing stickiness to the network and attracting new users to our network,” Vodafone cited during the ‘binge all night offer’ launch.
While subscribers are believed to spend more time-consuming content at night, Vodafone-Idea brought this offer for users with no restrictions on data so that they can browse and download a wide range of content from their favourite OTT platforms. While Vi’s latest move is likely meant to arch its rivals, the new high-speed unlimited data at night will certainly benefit heavy internet users.
