Telecom majors Airtel, Vodafone and Idea have come out with lucrative data plans to counter the 4G offers provided by newcomer Reliance Jio. Jio continues to offer discounted services under the Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan offer, and Airtel, Vodafone and Idea are facing the heat as their existing consumer base seems to shift to the much-cheaper Jio network.
Over the last few months, Jio’s disruptive positioning in the market has forced other operators to respond with generous counter-offers to retain customers, making the Indian telecom market of 1.12 billion subscribers a highly-competitive sector.
Reliance Jio recently announced a new plan where they are providing 1GB 4G data daily for three months at just Rs.309 for its prime members. Under the plan, a customer can avail unlimited SMS, calling and data (1GB 4G data per day) for three months for a first-time recharge.
Airtel’s new Rs.345 pack
Airtel has upgraded the data limit on its Rs. 345 pack from 1GB per day to 2GB per day. Moreover, there is no restriction of timing regarding the data consumption. Earlier, data usage was restricted to 500MB between 12am and 6am, and the remaining 500MB for the rest of the day. The new Rs.345 pack with 28 days validity has the same limits on free calls as the Rs. 399 pack.
Vodafone’s Rs.352 pack
This Vodafone offer comes with 1GB data per day for 56 days, or two recharge cycles of 28 days. Along with data, this Vodafone Super Offer pack provides unlimited local and STD calls for the period. However, details regarding this offer are not available on the service provider’s website or its ‘My Vodafone’ app. To avail the benefits of this offer, the USSD instructions direct users to head to their nearest Vodafone outlet.
Idea’s Rs.297 pack
Idea has reportedly launched a Rs.297 recharge pack that provides 1GB data per day for 70 days if you have a 4G compatible smartphone. The offer comes with 300 minutes of free calls per day and 1,200 minutes per week for Idea-to-Idea calls, after which you will be charged 30 paisa per minute.
