It seems that Data War started after the arrival of Mukesh Ambani led Reliance Jio group will see no end. Jio’s attractive offers and unlimited calling at throwaway prices has forced other industry leaders – Airtel, Vodafone and Idea – to come up with cheap offers in order to keep their user base intact. A number of attractive offers which usually come with unlimited calling and huge data keep on making news. However, it remains a curious question as to what is the cheapest data and calling plan offered by a company. If we talk about the two most affordable plans which offer unlimited calling – the bar again stops at Jio, followed by India’s largest telecom operator, Airtel. The cheapest monthly plan offered is from Jio which comes at Rs 149. While on the other hand, Airtel’s cheapest plan to offer unlimited calling is available at a recharge of Rs 199. Both the plans are valid for 28 days and offer unlimited calling and free 4G data. However, as always, conditions apply here!
This plan gives the user unlimited voice calls to any network, also is national roaming. The plan also includes 300 messages. Here a customer gets 2 GB 4G data, and after the data gets exhausted, the speed will be drastically reduced.
Airtel, India’s largest network, is offering 1GB 4G data and unlimited voice calls to any network, local and STD or national roaming in Rs 199. However, the plan doesn’t offer free messages. Also, if 1 GB Data is over, the company will start charging the customer for what he uses. Also, the unlimited calling has a capping of 300 minutes per day. And in the time period of one week, a customer cannot use more than 1200 minutes of calling.
