To compete with Reliance Jio and Vodafone, Airtel has rolled out two new recharge plans for its customers. The new offers include two new data-specific plans for the Airtel prepaid customers only. The new recharge plans costs Rs 48 and Rs 98 and they will be available to Airtel subscribers in all telecom circles in India. But it should be noted that Airtel hasn’t listed the two new plans on its official website, but all the third-party recharge applications and websites are offering the new recharge plans.
Earlier, Airtel had launched a new prepaid plan of Rs 248 for first-time Airtel prepaid users. As a part of that plan, Airtel was offering data benefits of 1.4GB daily, unlimited local and STD as well as roaming voice calls. And lastly, it also offers 100 SMS messages daily to its users for a duration of 28 days.
Talking about the new recharge plans of Airtel, the Rs 48 prepaid plan offers its users 3GB of 3G or 4G data for a total of 28 days. While the Rs 98 prepaid plan offers 6GB of 3G or 4G data with a total of 28 days validity. Other than that, the users will also get 10 free national SMS with the Rs 98 repaid plan. They offer less than the other data plan being offered by the company but it should also be noted that Airtel has basically brought out the new plans for the customers who are looking for cheap and affordable data plans.
Similarly, the other plans which are similar to the new data plans brought out by Airtel includes a Rs 29 data plan which offers a validity of 28 days. The Rs 29 data plan offers 520MB of 3G or 4G data to its customers. Other than the offers mentioned above, there are no other data plans which offer a validity of a month at such affordable prices. A data plan of Rs 92 by Airtel comes with a validity of 7 days and it offers 6GB of 3G and 4G data to its customers.
Airtel’s new plans comes days after Reliance Jio revised some of its data plans so that they offered more data at the same price. It also went on to reduce the price of some of its data plans while offering the same benefits they did before.
But it should also be taken into account that the new recharge plans are not listed on Airtel’s official website. Instead, they can be found on the third-party recharge apps and websites.
