The country’s largest operator, Bharti Airtel, on Wednesday said it will start offering 10 GB data for R249 for its prepaid users who opt for 4G services for the first time, effectively slashing the price per GB of data to R25 and jumping into a tariff war with Reliance Jio Infocomm, which promises to offer data at R50 per GB.

Under the new tariff that was launched in Gujarat on Wednesday, Bharti said consumers who purchase a new 4G handset can now get 10 GB 4G data for R249. While 1 GB data will be immediately credited when they recharge for R249, and the additional 9GB can be claimed by users by sending a text message to the company’s designated number — 52141.
The announcement comes after Vodafone India, the country’s second largest operator had announced a similar tariff pricing 1Gb of data at R25, for new 4G subscribers.
