To ward off the opposition from Jio, Airtel is said to have expanded the day by day information restrict on its Rs. 399 energize for select prepaid clients. Prior, the telecom supplier used to offer 1.4GB of information for each day, yet now it is said to have updated that number to 2.4GB every day. This correction has been improved the situation a restricted arrangement of clients as it were. The move will enable Airtel to contend better against Jio, which offers 1.5GB information for each day for 84 days at a similar cost. Notwithstanding, the Jio energize that comes nearest to this pack is the Rs. 448 pack, which offers 2GB information for every day for 84 days.
The Rs. 399 plan also offers unlimited voice calls and 70 days of validity. For some users, the validity is at 84 days, and this data limit raise is only for these users, reports Telecom Talk. Therefore, users who are entitled to the Rs. 399 plan with 84 day validity will now enjoy 2.4GB data per day, 100 SMS messages per day, and unlimited voice calls. This amounts to paying only Rs. 1.97 per GB, which is the lowest rate in the industry right now.
Users on the same plan with 70 days of validity will enjoy 1.4GB data only, along with 100 SMS messages per day, and unlimited voice calls as well. We expect Airtel to make this offer available to open market customers soon, and not just roll it out to a limited set of users.
Reliance Jio, on the other hand, has a similar Rs. 399 plan for its prepaid customers, where it offers 1.5GB of data connectivity per day for a fixed validity of 84 days. The telco provides 100 SMS messages per day, access to all of its digital content apps, and unlimited voice calls as well, on the same plan. This plan is available to all, and is not just for a limited set of users. Jio recently also launched a new cashback offer where prepaid subscribers will get 20 percent cash back (maximum up to Rs. 50) on purchasing a recharge pack from the MyJio app or Jio.com website and paying for the transaction with PhonePe. Called the ‘Holiday Hungama’ offer, this cashback offer will run from June 1 to June 15.
