Airtel unveiled a new tariff plan for its pre-paid users who are in urgent need of high speed data on any given day. Under this new plan, users can get 1GB of 4G/3G data for Rs 49 with a validity of 1 day.
The plan has been released to take on Reliance Jio’s Rs 52 plan under which users get 1.05GB of data along with unlimited calling with a validity of 7 days. However, the daily data limit is capped at around 150MB per day in the Jio plan. Airtel also has another plan with the same 1GB FUP priced at Rs 98 which comes with a validity of 28 days.
If you are in dire need of lots of data just for a single day, you can go for this Rs 49 recharge. However, if you spend Rs 49 more you can get the same amount of data along with 28 days validity to consume it. That’s a much better option we feel. And if you want even more data for a short duration, you can opt for the Rs 99 recharge under which you get 2GB of 3G/4G data with a validity of 5 days.
This new Rs 49 plan is currently available only in select circles of India and not nationwide. If the plan isn’t available in your circle, you can go ahead and opt for the Rs 51 recharge which offers similar benefits. Or you can opt for one of the other recharges mentioned above that suit your needs better.
