Airtel Launches Long-Term Prepaid Plans To Beat Rival Reliance Jio
Airtel has recently launched a new recharge pack of 597 rupees for its customers in various circles in order to battle with the opponents such as Reliance Jio and Vodafone. In the new prepaid plan, the company is offering voice calling benefits for a long period of time. The main point that should be noted about the latest plan is that the validity of the recharge plan is 168 days. The telecom company is also offering some data benefits along with the voice calling benefits.
This recharge plan is available only for selective subscribers in few regions but the recharge plan will be introduced to the other subscribers in few weeks. Under the new recharge plan of 597 rupees, the customers will get voice calling benefit without any FUP limit, 100 SMS and data benefit of 10GB of data with a validity of up to 168 days.
However, the data benefits given under the recharge pack of 597 rupees is rather low as compared to the other plans in the market that have a higher amount of data. Although it seems that the Airtel telecom company is trying to attract the customers who require unlimited voice calling for a longer period of time rather than the data benefits.
