Airtel checkmates rivals with 300GB data plan valid for 1 year

Airtel checkmates rivals with 300GB data plan valid for 1 year

The pack comes with 1GB of 3G/ 4GB data per day, unlimited local and STD calls, free outgoing calls on roaming, and 3,000 bundled SMSes. This plan from Airtel can finally compete with the offerings of Jio as it now includes 100 free SMS per day which was the only major difference in the offerings of the two companies.

Keeping the current festive season in mind, the new Rs. 392 voice and data combo pack of Vodafone is a amended variant of the Rs. 349 offer that the firm has been so far operating in Delhi-NCR, along with other chief areas of the nation.

Bharti Airtel has announced a new plan for its prepaid users. The offer is available only to select customers, which means one has to check Airtel website (recharge section) or the MyAirtel mobile application for eligibility. With the Rs. 179 tariff plan, Idea customers will get 1GB data and unlimited local and STD voice calls. Moreover, Jio'S Rs 399 plan has a validity of 70 days while Idea's Rs 357 plan comes with a validity of 28 days.

Airtel's another tariff plan of Rs 999, which gives benefits for 90 days gives its users unlimited voice calls including outgoing roaming calls. However, users will get 250 minutes per day or 1,000 minutes per week of calls. Customers can also avail 50 percent discount on the data plan by paying via Airtel Payments Bank.

Apart from the introduction of the new 448 plan, Airtel has also added a few improvements to their older 349 plan.

1GB quota exceeds speed will reduce to 64 kbps. The good thing about this plan is that unlike the Rs 349 and the Rs 399 plan, this plan doesn't have an upper cap on the daily usage limit for data and you have the liberty to use your 300GB data as you like. If the user crosses the limit Rs 30 Paise will be charged for each minute.

What do you think of this new tariff plan from Idea Cellular?

Airtel also recently indicated that it plans to upgrade its network to support 4G in the next 304 years and will gradually shut down its 3G services.
