Both Bharti Airtel and Reliance Jio offer a 1GB daily data prepaid plan to the consumers. These plans are meant for people who don’t have heavy data usage. Further, to ensure that the telcos are earning enough out of their customers, they don’t offer their 1GB daily data plans for the long or medium term. Users can only get these plans for the short term. Airtel and Jio are considered the top two telecom operators in India when it comes to network experience. Thus, we are taking their base 1GB daily data plans and comparing what they offer to the consumers.
