Here comes Airtel to beat JIO.

Airtel, the no.1 telecom operator in the country is giving a tough competition to Reliance Jio as it is also rolling out new data plans at competitive prices. Recently, the company revamped its existing plans and is now offering more data to its prepaid customers.

The telco recently introduced Rs 349 and Rs 549 plans and has now revised both of them.
Under the Rs 349 plan, the service provider was earlier offering 1.5GB data per day with unlimited local and STD calls and SMS. Now the telco has revised it and is offering 2GB data per day. On the other hand, under the Rs 549 plan, the telco used to give 3GB data and is now offering 3.5GB data per day with unlimited calling and SMS benefits. Both the plans come with a validity of 28 days.

This means that Airtel subscribers will now get 56GB data under the Rs 349 plan and 84GB data under the Rs 549 plan. This is the second time that the company has revamped its Rs 349 plan. In the beginning, the company used to offer 1GB data, which later changed to 1.5GB and has now become 2GB.

Both the plans are better to Reliance Jio as the telco offers only 1GB data per day in both the Rs 399 plan and Rs 499 plan. However, the plans are valid for a longer period but the data offered is less when compared to the plan rolled out by Airtel.

Last month, Airtel introduced a plan for Rs 999 for its postpaid users. Under the Rs 999 plan, the Airtel postpaid users will get 50GB data, unlimited local and STD calls as well as free roaming calls. The plan falls under the ‘My Infinity Plan’ of the company and is available for both existing and new Airtel customers.

Under this plan, the subscribers will also be able to avail the company’s ‘data rollover’ offer. As part of the ‘data rollover offer’, the unused data will be forwarded to the next billing cycle of the user. According to the plan, once a user exhausts his 50GB data limit, then he will be charged at a rate of 50 paise per MB.
