To be frank, this innovative plan is not a brainchild of Bharti Airtel. Prior to that, the Vodafone India launched ₹569 prepaid plan that offers 100 SMS, 3GB data on daily basis, and unlimited voice calling with 84 days validity period. However, the voice calling is subject to FUP limitation of 250 minutes per day.
What’s Your Opinion?
As Vodafone has got a better validity period, the price per GB data has come down to ₹2.257 in contrast to Bharti Airtel’s ₹2.268. Let’s wait and check how the Reliance Jio will respond to the daily 3GB data pack plans being offered by its competitors.
To the unaware, Reliance Jio has become India’s third-largest telecom company in terms of revenue market share (RMS). Currently, Bharti Airtel leads the game with 31.8% share, followed by Vodafone India (21%) and Reliance Jio (19.8%). Kumar Birla-led Idea Cellular’s RMS slipped to 16.5%. Even after the Vodafone India - Idea Cellular merger, Reliance Jio Infocomm would still retain its third place with its aggressive pricing strategy.
