Vianet Purple Pack: Opinion
Here, Vianet has partnered with Ncell to provide added benefits to its consumer. Both the companies are big in the sector. We have seen Nepal Telecom bring similar offers in the past, but Vianet has bigger market coverage and will benefit more users.
That being said, the Purple Packs is not going to make people cancel their current subscription and switch to Vianet. But it definitely adds value to existing Vianet users and those who are considering Vianet. Let’s face it, it’s monsoon and there have been increased power cuts lately.
