Idea Cellular ₹348 Plan Offers Unlimited Calls, 1GB Data Per Day
India’s third-largest telecom service provider, Idea Cellular, has revamped its popular plan ₹348 Plan to offer 1GB of 4G data per day along with unlimited local and national voice calling. The new plan is applicable to the owners of 4G handsets only and has a validity of 28 days.
Me-too Pricing by Leading Telecom Operators:
Earlier the telecom operator offered 500MB of 4G data per day under the same ₹348 plan. Incidentally, Airtel is also offering 1GB of 4G data per day but with a condition. The 1GB of 4G data is divided into 2 time zones where the user subscriber can use 500MB on daytime and 500MB during night hours. As usual, the user can enjoy unlimited voice calls without any restriction.
The state-run BSNL has come up with an exclusive ₹339 plan offering 2GB of 4G data along with unlimited on-the-net BSNL calls for a period of 28 days. The country’s top two telecom operator Vodafone India too is offering a similar plan to its prepaid subscribers. With ₹342 recharge, the Vodafone subscriber can enjoy unlimited voice calling along with 28GB of data per month with a FUP of 1GB per day.
Reliance Jio to Dent Revenue and Recovery:
With the extension of Reliance Jio freebies under Summer Special Plan, all the telecom operators are feeling the heat and will definitely dent earnings in the coming quarters. The telecom industry may witness further consolidation as a part of brutal price wars.
The newly launched Reliance Jio Summer Special and extension of Jio Prime subscription will definitely intensify the telecom war for domination. Though it may directly benefit the customer, however, there are certainly other things to be considered in the long-run.
