Airtel Introduces 'Unlimited Data' In Prepaid Recharge Packs Starting At Rs 199

BSNL's Rs 118 prepaid plan is no match for Reliance Jio's 98 bundle

Airtel's Rs 199 prepaid plan offers 1.4GB of data per day if a subscriber consumer the per day data limit, they have to wait for their next day data limit or they have to recharge a separate data pack. The plan carries a validity of 28 days.

The state-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) is leaving no stone unturned in trying to stay afloat in the telecom market which has been disrupted by Mukesh Ambani led Reliance Jio with its heavy data, unlimited voice calls and many other freebies. This clearly means that recharging with a data-only pack or a usual unlimited pack that offers a certain amount of data on a monthly basis will not give the advantage of 128Kbps post Fup speed. In a new offer, BSNL is now offering no holds barred unlimited calling for just Rs 99, which only landline users can avail. The Jio pack offers additional benefits of a free subscription to Jio apps. Jio plan 98 offers 2GB data usage with free and unlimited calling. In March, Airtel brought its Rs. 995 pack to that was the first prepaid pack to offer the truly unlimited experience for voice calls.

In a related news, Airtel has now chose to focus on post-FUP speed now, as they have raised their barrier, and offering 126 Kbps of post-FUP speed.

The BSNL Rs. 118 recharge pack is available in several circles including Chennai, Kolkata, and more. Airtel's Rs. 93 recharge plan provides customers with "unlimited" calls, both local and STD, no extra charges on roaming networks, a total of 100 SMS messages per day, and 1GB data (4G or 3G) to be consumed in a validity period of 28 days. This remains unchanged from the other packs offered by the telco.

Airtel Rs 509 plan: Subscribers buying this plan will get unlimited voice calls, free-roaming outgoing and incoming, 100 local/national SMS a day and 1.4GB data per day for 90 days. However, it is important to note that the post FUP speed is only applicable on packs that comes with daily data limits. And after cross the calling threshold, users will be charged at 1 paisa per second for calls.

After launching new plans that compete closely with Jio and other rival companies, Airtel has now announced that it will also offer the truly unlimited internet experience like Jio and BSNL by giving FUP speed of 128Kbps on Airtel unlimited packs. However, the new broadband plan benefits have only been launched in the Kerala circle for now.
