There are many types of prepaid plans available from different telecom operators. There are plans which are focused on providing more data to the user, but then they don’t carry a long validity period. Then there are plans which are focused on providing long validity but usually come with fewer data benefits. Interestingly, now there are prepaid plans which are focused on providing OTT benefits. Today, we are going to focus on the affordable prepaid plans which offer longer validity but then as a side-effect, come with lesser data to make them affordable.
