Airtel checkmates rivals with 300GB data plan valid for 1 year


Jio's Rs 399 plan, meanwhile, offers free roaming as well, in addition to unlimited voice calling and 1GB data per day. This plan from Airtel can finally compete with the offerings of Jio as it now includes 100 free SMS per day which was the only major difference in the offerings of the two companies. Under this plan, Airtel offers a massive 300GB of 4G data along with free unlimited voice calls and a limit of 100 SMS per day. It appears like telecom service providers like Bharti Airtel and Vodafone will now trouble Reliance Jio with their new data and voice calling plans. This is one of the longest validity packs being offered by Airtel right now and comes with enough data to last the validity.

The calls have been limited to 250 minutes per day and 1000 minutes for the week.

Aimed to woo voice customers, the new offer from the Kumar Mangalam Birla-owned telco is in competition with Bharti Airtel's unlimited voice plans for Rs 199 and Vodafone's Rs 177 pack on similar lines. It is too valid for 70 days and has unlimited SMSes feature. Under the new plan, those who recharge with Rs 399 will get 90GB 4G data for six months along with unlimited local and STD calls. Customers can also avail 50 percent discount on the data plan by paying via Airtel Payments Bank. After 1 GB data limit, Internet speed will be reduced to 64 KB.

Airtel has also introduced a tariff plan of Rs 1,999 which gives the users a benefit of 180 days. Now, the company is back with a new long-term data and voice combo plan for its prepaid subscribers. Under Airtel Rs 448 recharge plan the users can get 1GB 3G/4G Data daily. Once the limit is exhausted, then users will be charged 30 paise per minute.

The plan, priced at Rs 3,999 comes with a validity of 360 days, which is five days less than a year. "With our Rs 179 recharge we will enable customers to continue their conversations non-stop", Sashi Shankar, chief marketing officer, Idea Cellular said.
