In India Hutch was known as cheapest prepaid mobile service provider. Now Hutch is acquired by Vodafone. Vodafone is the largest mobile telecommunications network company in the world by turnover and has a market value of about £84.7 billion (July 2007). Vodafone is leader in the mobile service, so Hutch customers now can expect world class cellular service from vodafone. Hutch customers need not to worry about their Hutch mobile number, as it will not change. Hutch customer care number (CC number) will not change, it will remain the same, in future it may change. I can say Hutch service is very good in comparison to other mobile service providers in india. Vodafone will have very attractive plans for Indian costomer. All Indian mobile service providers like Airtel, BSNL , Tata indicam or IDEA will have to compete with Vodafone because their service is very poor.
