Leading telecom network operator Airtel has announced a new high on data and validity plan for prepaid users. Once users have subscribed to this plan, they’ll benefit from 300GB of 4G data, unlimited voice calls, and 100 SMS per day. Interestingly, it comes with the validity of 360 days. The new Airtel plan costs Rs 3,999.
If we do a simple math, it costs Rs 334 per month for 25GB of 4GB data and unlimited voice calls and comes with the validity of 30 days. But since all prepaid plans normally carry a validity of 28 days, our math doesn’t add up. But never mind.
Airtel, on the other hand, has revised its Rs 349 plan. Unlike before, it now offers 1.5GB of 4G data and 100 SMS per day in addition to unlimited voice calls. However, the validity of the plan still remains the same that’s 28 days. So, pricing and benefits are pretty much the same in both the cases.
Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio also has a couple of plans for prepaid users to counter Airtel Rs 349 plan. Starting with Rs 309 plan, Jio users can benefit from free unlimited calls (local and STD) and 49 GB of 4G data for 49 days. As a result, users are limited to access 1GB of 4G data per day. Once users have hit the FUP, speed will further be reduced to 64kbps.
Reliance Jio Rs 399 plan, on the other hand, offers the similar benefits. The only difference, it comes with the validity of 70 days. Hence, users get 70GB 4G data with the FUP of 1GB data per day. Both the plans unlimited SMS and access to other premium Jio apps and services.
Interestingly, Reliance Jio also has the similar Rs 4,999 plan that offers 350GB data. It has the similar validity of 360 days.
