Vodafone Idea offers speed as a key differentiator to lift ARPU via RedX plan

Was wondering if this
1) Ethical?
2) infringes net neutrality?
3) Is it a tacit admittance that it's throttling speeds for other customers, especially pre paid?

They lost lots of postpaid customers due to network integration issues. To get them back this kind of strategy is used. Looks like they will throttle speeds in prepaid connections such a stupid move.

Their network integration is yet not complete. This merger led to too much spectrum for them to pay for, making scarce spending on network.
No investment from parent , so they were facing the same music thy competitors faced few years back.
VoLTE is still not active on IDEA Delhi circle.

Not sure about throttling consistently, but I’ve seen that Vodafone tends to slow down pre paid connections if too much data is used at a time. Dunno about postpaid because I don’t have one from them.

I have also faced this issue. For me after consuming some % of data from plan, speed abruptly goes to 2Mbps all of a sudden from 20Mbps.

Yeah it's not long before Airtel copies this scam, er, I mean, scheme.

After all they are part of the AVOID (COAI) cartel.

Yeah it’s like EE does in the UK. Their top plans offer more speed than the other ones. Although, I’m pretty sure the Indian consumers will not take kindly to this kind of a ScHeMe.
