Recently, telecom companies have made talking on the phone expensive by increasing the price of pre-paid plans. But, after increasing the burden on the common man, the companies are preparing to give another blow. Yes, according to a report, telecom companies are now considering increasing the price of postpaid plans. It is expected that if this happens, another problem is going to increase for the postpaid customers using the service of Airtel, Vodafone Idea.
It is worth noting that Jio, including the giant telcos Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea, had increased the prepaid tariff plan only last month. It started with Bharti Airtel. Airtel increased the prepaid mobile rates by 20 to 25 percent, then its seen Vodafone Idea has also made the tariff costlier by 25 percent. Not only this, after increasing the tariff of both the companies, Reliance Jio also joined it and the prices of Jio’s prepaid plan were increased by 20 percent.
Postpaid plan still in place
After increasing the prepaid plan, till now these telecom companies have not made any change in the postpaid rates. However, according to the report, telecom companies have started preparing to increase the burden on postpaid customers. However, for postpaid customers, the difference in price hike is likely to be marginal. The reason for this is that postpaid users usually continue with their plan. In such a situation, there is a possibility of increasing the prices of the plan in the prepaid segment as well.
What is the opinion of experts
A report released regarding the increase in postpaid plans quoted experts as saying that telecom companies are open to the fact that they want to increase their average revenue per user (ARPU) figure. Vodafone-Idea needs this the most at the present time. While the prepaid tariff hike has helped companies, the postpaid tariff hike will act as a cherry on top of the cake.
Revenue market of Rs 22 thousand crore
According to the report, if we look at the postpaid market in terms of revenue, then it is around Rs 22,000 crore. Postpaid customers account for about 5 percent of the active subscribers of the entire telecom sector and 15 percent of the revenue for companies comes from the postpaid segment.
