Which is better: Vi prepaid or Vi postpaid?


Vi prepaid and postpaid both are entirely different sets of plans. Both are designed for different requirements.

In terms of flexibility, cheapness, ease to use, and safety, prepaid plans are better than postpaid ones. However, postpaid is better than prepaid in terms of long-lasting services, data cost, and additional benefits. It always depends upon you which type of plan fulfils your requirements at the best price.

The primary factor that differentiates between them is the billing. Postpaid plans are slightly more expensive than prepaid but it gives you full control of your plan. In prepaid, if you don’t use your allotted data, it expires while postpaid makes a bill based on your consumption of data. After expiration of validity, prepaid immediately off all its services. In prepaid you have extra days to pay bills.

In conclusion, your set of requirements and usages decide which plan is a good fit for you.
