Night owler here is a treat from Vodafone Idea or Vi. The Indian telecom operator has essentially made data usage entirely free at midnight and that too, unlimited without any sort of FUP or fair usage policy. Starting sharp at 12 am-midnight and until 6 am early morning each day, you could enjoy unlimited free high-speed 4G data at no extra cost. Yup, there is no catch here.
The special data benefit under the Vi Unlimited is being offered to all users who have recharged for Rs 249 or above plans at no extra cost. The Rs 249 is the lowest plan from the telecom operator that offer daily data benefits along with unlimited talk time for 28 days.
Still, the Vi Weekend data rollover benefits remain intact to all eligible users. Your unused daily data quota from the weekdays or Monday to Friday gets accumulated and is made available for use on the weekends or Saturday and Sunday. Thus you could fully utilize the unused data from the weekdays to binge-watch an entire TV series or Movies on weekend.
Thus Vi prepaid mobile customers are now getting a triple benefit. One in the form of double data benefits on most of the unlimited data and calling prepaid plans. Second, in the form of weekend data rollover, that we talked about earlier and now the unlimited free data benefit from 12 am to 6 am every day, at no extra cost.
The above data benefits and plans are very much unique to Vi and no other Indian telcos are matching this. Hope, this could end the churning out of its loyal customer base to its rival.
