New Delhi: Betting big on 3G adoption with increasing penetration of smartphone users, Vodafone India today said the 2G and 3G tariffs will converge in near future, although there is little scope for further cut in 3G rates.

As per the company, when it launched 3G services in 2010-11, the 3G tariffs were 6-7 times higher than 2G but this difference has now been reduced to just 1.5 times.

"We brought down the 3G data prices around four months back and we except 2G and 3G prices will converge in near future," Vodafone India Business Head (Delhi) Subrat Padhi said here.

He said the convergence will take place either by an increase in 2G rates or decrease in 3G rates while asserting that there is little scope for further cut in data rates.
