Airtel Launches A New Plan To Take On Jio Offers 365 Days Validity, 1GB Daily Data
Bharti Airtel has come out a new prepaid recharge plan. The plan is priced at Rs. 1,699. The Telco with the launch of this new pack has promised to offer unlimited calling, data, and SMS benefits.
The validity of this new Airtel Rs. 1,699 pack is for total 365 days and with that, it is to give a promising competition to the biggest telco in the country, namely Reliance Jio that also offers a year-long package at the same price.
Just like Reliance Jio, Airtel does not put any FUP on its unlimited voice calling benefits, and the Rs. 1,699 recharge is also available in an open market manner. The subscribers of this plan include Airtel TV’s premium content. The Airtel TV app offers premium content like movies and other exclusive shows.
The new Airtel Rs. 1,699 prepaid plan will offer its customers unlimited STD, roaming, and local calls, 100 SMS messages each day and 1GB data benefit per day. It is also reported to come with a year-long validity and offers a free premium content subscription on the Airtel TV app.
The new Airtel recharge will compete directly with the Reliance Jio’s Rs. 1,699 prepaid recharge that offers unlimited voice calling benefits, 100 SMS messages per day, and 1.5GB data per day for the validity of 365 days.
That’s not it though, as Vodafone’s Rs. 1,499 prepaid recharge that offers similar benefits as the Airtel Rs. 1,699 pack – 1GB data per day, 100 SMS messages per day, unlimited voice calling, and one-year validity is also giving head to head competition to other telcos in the market.
The Rs. 1,499 Vodafone recharge also includes access to the Vodafone Play app to offer prepaid subscribers with free Live TV and movies while on-the-go. Earlier this month, BSNL also launched the Rs. 1,312 recharge as its new year-long recharge option with 5GB data and unlimited voice calls for 365 days.
