Vodafone Idea Limited (VIL) has informed the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) that its new pay-more-for-priority-experience REDX plan is just another tariff plan and not a new service.

Further, flagging the financial stress faced by operators the telco also added that operators have been compelled to not only reduce prices but also make continuous investments in the networks to cater to unprecedented increase in data usage arising out of below costs tariffs.

The telco urged TRAI to consider periodic reporting of its service quality, adding that it should then reach a conclusion on the premium plans.
