Airtel's 'new move' to take on rivals

Share

In March, Airtel brought its Rs. 995 pack to that was the first prepaid pack to offer the truly unlimited experience for voice calls. This prepaid recharge plan of Jio is valid for 28 days, while earlier it used to be valid for 14 days only. So for instance, if you're on the Rs. 199 pack that presently offers 1.4GB data per day, you'll no longer need to recharge for a separate pack once you exceed the 1.4GB quota and will receive data at a speed of 128Kbps after surpassing the daily limit. Data at high-speed is 0.15 GB per day, after which internet speed gets reduced to 64 Kbps.

The state-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) is leaving no stone unturned in trying to stay afloat in the telecom market which has been disrupted by Mukesh Ambani led Reliance Jio with its heavy data, unlimited voice calls and many other freebies.

BSNL's offer also comes with limitations in select circles, and it only offers half the amount of data that Jio does at Rs 20 lesser price. The BSNL signature tune gets activated automatically for free, once the recharge is done. BSNL is also offering 128Kbps of data speed.

Reliance Jio already offers users Rs 98 prepaid plan which gives unlimited local and STD calls and national roaming for free along with 2GB data for 28 days; users also get 300 free SMS free of cost. Voice calls are unlimited and 70 SMS are offered. Also there are freebies which will be revealed once you recharge the pack, but they are available till 81 days. Moreover, BSNL did not mention any FUP limit per day, so we can say that the voice calling is unlimited like the other BSNL prepaid plans. Now, the telco has launched yet another prepaid plan to take on Reliance Jio's Rs 98 plan. BSNL has recently announced new plans doubling the FUP data for three of its FTTH plans with no change in prices. The catch is that the plan is limited to only a few circles now.
