After the introduction of Reliance Jio in the Indian market, prepaid and data plans offered by telecom operators are now cheaper. All telecom operators in the country have reduced their tariffs to retain their existing customers and have more subscribers. Companies like Airtel, Vodafone, and Idea amongst others have drastically changed their strategies. We have compiled a list of the best data plans that every major telecom operator in India below.
Currently, Airtel is offering unlimited Local and STD calls along with 1GB of data with 70 days validity for Rs. 399 to its prepaid users. Alternatively, Airtel also offers 2GB of 4G data along with unlimited Local and STD calls for 28 days at Rs. 345. Airtel is also offering its customers 1GB of 4G data per day along with unlimited calls and data rollover.
Vodafone has also jumped on the bandwagon by offering data at low prices. The company is offering a total of 28GB of 4G/3G data (1GB per day) along with unlimited landline and mobile calls at Rs. 348 for 28 days.
Idea Cellular to compete with other telecom providers recently released a tariff plan where it is offering 1GB of 4G data for a period of 84 days along with unlimited Local and STD calls. Idea is charging Rs. 396 for this plan. But there is a catch. This plan is limited to customers with a 4G device. So, customers with a 3G device will be getting only 2GB of data for 28 days.
Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) recently has released a new tariff plan by the name of BSNL Sixer 666 Plan. Under this plan, prepaid users will be getting 2GB of 3G/2G data per day after which the speed will be reduced for 60 days. Under this plan, the users will also get unlimited voice calling to any network. The company is charging Rs. 666 for this plan.
Reliance Jio ignited this war amongst all the telecom operators. Currently, Reliance Jio is offering 1GB of 4G data per day along with unlimited voice calls. The plan is valid for 84 days from the time of recharge and costs Rs. 399. However, first you need to be a Jio Prime member which will cost you extra Rs. 99.
Since the introduction of these plans, only the prepaid users have been able to benefit, and the postpaid users are still paying the same old costly tariffs. However, recently Reliance Jio also forayed into the postpaid market. So, postpaid plans offered by other telcos are also expected to be cheaper.
