Bharti Airtel, to take on Reliance Jio and to gain more momentum in the Bharti Airtel vs RJio tariff war, has made startling revisions to its Rs 149 recharge pack to pull in more subscribers by offering maximum benefits at minimum prices. Airtel has revised its existing Rs 149 recharge offer once again and it is available to customers in select circles. Airtel for long has been trying to catch up with the immense competition that Jio offers with its data and unlimited roaming and incoming calls offers. However, let’s take a quick look at what Bharti Airtel has to offer in its latest deal:
Airtel Rs 149 recharge pack:
In the revised plan, Airtel has offered its customers the cheapest plan with benefits of unlimited calls. Airtel offers unlimited local, STD calls and outgoing roaming for a validity 28 days. The pack also includes 100 SMS per day, however, the Rs 149 recharge offers only 1GB of data for the whole validity period. Airtel’s Rs 149 recharge plan is currently not available to all customers and have been released in two circles, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. Earlier, Airtel Rs 149 prepaid recharge was offering 4G handset users unlimited Airtel to Airtel voice calls and 1GB 4G data for 28 days, but now the plan is revised to offer calls to any network even on roaming and 1GB 4G/3G data in the same validity period. Surprisingly, Airtel has a Rs 179 tariff plan which also offers similar benefits and the company may be in the process of killing the Rs 179 plan to encourage subscribers to take up the RS 149 plan. Or maybe the Rs 149 plan is a limited period offer.
Reliance Jio Rs 149 recharge pack:
Reliance Jio though is charging the same price as Bharti Airtel, was offering 4.2GB data for the validity period of 28 days. Reliance Jio had set the Fair Usage Policy(FUP) for daily usage at 0.15GB per day which has been upgraded to 1GB per day data. Meaning, Jio now will be offering 28GB data in as many days. After exhaustion of data, Jio will be offering 64 kbps speed. Within the offer, users will get unlimited local, STD and roaming calls to all operators. The users will also get 100 SMS per day. Users using Jio app will get access to Jio Cinema, Jio Music and My Jio.
