Jio effect: Airtel offers 1.5GB per day with Rs 349 pack
Amid high competition in the telecom market, Airtel has launched a new scheme that will offer Airtel pre-paid customers much more data than what it offered earlier.
According to the new plan, Airtel is offering 1.5GB per day data with unlimited local as well as STD calls. The user will also get 3000 text message.
This plan will compete with Reliance Jio's Rs 309 and Rs 399 plans for pre-paid users. Both plans offer unlimited calling along with 1GB of data per day, which is half a GB less than what Airtel offers.
Under another combo recharge pack priced at Rs. 448, Bharti Airtel is offering 1 GB data and 100 SMS per day for a validity period of 70 days, among other benefits, according to its website. Airtel's Rs. 448 recharge pack also includes "Unlimited all Local+STD calls(for non-commercial use), free outgoing in National Roaming" for the 70-days validity period, Airtel added. "Offer applicable on All Handsets.Non-Commercial use," Airtel said about the Rs. 448 recharge offer.
Last month, Airtel offered a 100 percent cash back on its Rs 349 recharge for its pre-paid customers. The operator would refund Rs 50 for seven consecutive months after the recharge.
To avail the offer, customers would have to use the My Airtel app and make the payment via Airtel Payments Bank. The money would then be credited back to the Airtel Payments Bank.
