Following on the lines of Reliance Jio, Airtel has today announced unlimited voice calls and additional 4G data under a new plan. With a Rs 345 recharge, Airtel prepaid users will be able to make unlimited calls to any network and get 1GB of 4G data for 28 days, the carrier said in a statement.
Under a separate recharge plan of Rs 145, users will be getting 300 MB of 4G data and unlimited calls within the Airtel network for 28 days.
Reliance Jio, which had launched its services in September with free services for all users till December 31, recently unveiled a three-month extension to its promotional offer – now ending in March 2017. Jio offers unlimited voice calling, SMS, national roaming and data to users (with a 4GB FUP until Dec 31).
Launch of service by Jio has led to a price war among the incumbent telecom operators. State-run BSNL has also earlier in the week offered attractive plans to remain competitive with the new entrant in the market and retain its market share. Vodafone has also announced ‘Double data’ for its prepaid users recently.
Aircel has also launched a new offer – FRC148 with a validity of 90 days. Customers will enjoy free Aircel to Aircel (Local and STD) calling and also get free Aircel to others (local and STD with a free usage of 15,000 seconds/month for three months) for 90 days with the First Recharge of Rs 149. In addition to the calling benefits, customers will get unlimited 2G data for one month.
