The Indian telecom sector has seen a major shift in the past two years, with calling and data becoming cheaper. We moved from lifetime free incoming calls, to monthly recharge plans, and the ones with daily data limits and unlimited outgoing. While telcos like Airtel, BSNL and Reliance Jio offer virtually unlimited calling, Vodafone and Idea Cellular had set a daily and weekly FUP (fair usage policy). However, that changes soon.
Up until now, the unlimited calling FUP was set at 250 calls daily, and 1,000 calls weekly. Once the calling limit was hit, users were either charged 1.2paise per second or Re 1 per minute, depending on the circle and segmentation. However, BGR India has learned that Vodafone Idea has removed the FUP limits on unlimited calling plans.
