Bharti Airtel ₹249 Plan Offers 2GB Daily Data for 28 Days
The Industry leader Bharti Airtel strikes back with ₹249 plan. The new prepaid plan is meant to counter Reliance Jio’s IPL 2018 plan. As per the Airtel ₹249 plan, the user can enjoy 2GB data per day for a period of 28 days.
The Reliance Jio Cricket Pack ₹251 offers a total of 102GB of data with a validity of 51 days. Here the data cap is 2GB per day and thereafter unlimited usage at 64kbps speed. The data can be used to access all internet content and is not just limited to watching IPL matches.
Back to the Airtel new plan, it is an open market plan where one can recharge through My Airtel app or website or any retail store. Coming to the benefits, the Airtel ₹249 plan offers a total of 56GB of 4G/3G data (2GB daily limit), unlimited calls (local, STD and roaming), and 100 SMS per day with a validity period of 28 days.
Airtel Revises ₹349 Plan:
Along with it, Bharti Airtel also revised the most popular ₹349 plan to offer daily 3GB of 4G/3G data. Earlier, the teleco used to offer daily 2.5GB per data. Now, one can enjoy 84GB of 4G/3G data, unlimited calls (local, STD and free roaming), and 100 SMS per day with a validity period of 28 days.
However, one should note that both the prepaid packs do have a FUP limit of 300 minutes per day and 1000 minutes per week. Post the usage limit, the calls will be charged 30 paisa per minute.
It is to be noted that both these plans are meant for heavy data users. With IPL season on, there could be a rush for these data plans. Though these plans can’t be compared to Reliance Jio’s offerings but are surely reliable.
