Jio Effect: Airtel Offers Unlimited Calls and 1GB Data Daily at ₹399 for 70 Days
The country’s leading telecom service provider, Bharti Airtel, has rolled out another plan to counter Reliance Jio’s Dhan Dhana Dhan Offer. As per the latest plan, Bharti Airtel offers unlimited calls and 1GB of 4G data with a validity of 70 days. This clearly shows Bharti Airtel is considering every opportunity to take on Reliance Jio.
Airtel 4G SIM + 4G Handset:
According to the terms and conditions, the new ₹399 Airtel Plan is applicable to the users who own a 4G handset with a 4G Airtel SIM in it. If the subscriber has 3G/2G SIM in a 4G enabled handset, then this special offer will not be applicable. All you need to have is an Airtel 4G SIM in 4G enabled handset for availing this special plan from Airtel.
Similarly, Airtel has launched a couple of interesting plans apart from 399 Plan. Under ₹244 Plan, the Airtel prepaid users can enjoy 1GB of daily data for a period of 70 days. The users can make unlimited calls within Airtel network subject to a maximum of 300 minutes calls per day and 1200 minutes of Airtel calls per week. After this limit, the calls will be charged 10 paise per minute.
Bharti Airtel has upgraded the ₹345 pack. Earlier it used to offer 1GB of 4G data per day. Now it’s has been upgraded to offer 2GB of 4G data daily. As usual, one can enjoy unlimited calls with this pack in line with the newly launched ₹399 pack. All these revised packs are effective from 17th April 2017 and are available for recharge through My Airtel App and on the official website.
Perks Only to 4G Customers:
Reportedly, Vodafone India and Idea Cellular also launched similar combo packs to target 4G subscribers and prevent an exodus to Reliance Jio. There is a widespread criticism that the incumbent telecom players are offering reduced prices only to 4G customers leaving 3G and 2G subscribers aside. Let us know your feedback.
