RCOM Rolls Out ₹148 FR to Offer 70GB 4G Data for 70 Days
Anil Ambani-owned Reliance Communications (RCOM) has introduced a new first recharge of ₹148 that offers 70GB of 4G data with a validity of 70 days. Incidentally, this new first recharge tariff plan is valid only in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh telecom circle.
RCOM Super Value Tariff FRC 148:
This super value tariff pack provides daily 1GB of 4G data for 70 days along with ₹50 talk time. Though this first recharge pack is in tune with tariff plans offered by its competitors, it doesn’t provide unlimited voice calling benefits. As per the tariff, the RCOM users will be charged 10 paise per minute if the calls are within Reliance Communications network. For calls to other networks, the subscriber will be charged 25 paise per minute.
Apart from the first recharge 148, the telecom company has also launched two plans namely FRC 54 and FRC 61. Under the FRC 54 pack, the user will get daily 1GB of 4G data for 28 days and the voice call charges are same as that of FRC 148.
Cheapest 4G Data Offer:
According to the company, FRC 61 plan offers daily 1GB 4G data for 28 days and the on-net call charges are 1 paise per 6 seconds and 1 paise per 2 seconds for calls to other networks (both local and STD). Though these first recharge packs are of super value but limited to the new users of Reliance Communications. When the incumbent players are extending the benefits to all prepaid users, RCOM is sticking its strategy to the new customers.
Though the new packs don’t have unlimited calling facility, they provide value in terms of data. For example, the largest telecom network Bharti Airtel has ₹349 plan that offers unlimited voice calling and daily 1GB of 4G data for a period of 28 days. It is relatively a higher end pack when compared to RCOM’s FRC ₹54 pack. What’s your take on RCOM’s latest first recharge?
