Airtel has launched some new offers for its subscribers. Ever since Reliance Jio was launched last year, every other telecom company have been trying to match up with the aggressive pricing. Now that the Jio free period is over, users are paying to subscribe to its services. Taking this as an opportunity, rivals like Airtel have come up with similar offers. While the same price range might be a bit confusing for some of you, the competition generally is a good deal for users. Airtel’s new data and voice plans are clearly aimed to take on Reliance Jio since many of the prices match exactly as it is. While there are other offers that Airtel has launched, the most interesting ones are the Rs 149, Rs 349 and Rs 399 plans. This is because both Reliance Jio and Airtel have the same price points.
