Airtel, in order to regain its supremacy in the telecom market and tackle Reliance Jio’s lucrative offers, has revamped its Rs 399 prepaid pack and has decided to give similar benefits as that of RJio’s Rs 398 plan. Under the new plan, prepaid subscribers will get 1GB 3G/4G data daily. Apart from this users will also get unlimited voice calls both local, STD and roaming and 100 SMS per day. The validity of the pack was 70 days. This means subscribers will get 70GB of total data. The company in its Rs 399 prepaid pack previously offered 1GB 3G/4G data per day for the validity of 28 days. In contrast, Reliance Jio’s Rs 398 pack offers benefits such as 1.5GB high-speed 4G data daily, unlimited voice calls, 100 SMS per day and a complimentary subscription to Jio apps. The validity of the pack is 70 days.
There are other two plans for Airtel’s high-internet users- Rs 448, Rs 509 and Rs 549 pack. Under the Rs 448 data pack, users will get 1GB data per day for 82 days. Similarly, under the Rs 509 pack customers will have the same benefits for 91 days. However, under the Rs 549 pack, Airtel offers 3GB data per day for 28 days.
In the past, Airtel has launched competitive offers to take on Jio’s continuing onslaught on tariff rates in India’s telecom scene. Airtel had announced a Rs. 199 prepaid pack to compete with Jio’s pack priced at the same rate. Both packs offer unlimited calls and 100 SMS per day, although Jio’s 199 pack provides 1.2GB 4G data per day while the Airtel pack providers 1GB 3G/ 4G data per day.
Additionally, Airtel has also released a Rs. 93 pack that offers unlimited voice calls to all networks, 100 SMS per day, and a total of 1GB 3G/ 4G data with a validity of 10 days. This takes on Jio’s Rs. 98 pack that has same benefits, albeit with a limit of 140 SMS and an extended validity of 14 days.
