Tariff War: Airtel Started Offering 1GB Data Per Day With the Rs 149 Prepaid Tariff Plan

Bharti Airtel has once again countered Reliance Jio by revising the entry-level Rs 149 tariff plan. Airtel is now offering 28GB of 3G/4G data for 28 days at just Rs 149. This change also states that Airtel will not hold back anymore and will counter its closest rival Jio in the tariff plans department. The revised Rs 149 plan is available in most of the top circles such as Andhra Pradesh & Telangana, Delhi, Karnataka, etc. But only a few users are eligible for the offer at the moment, but Airtel is expected to make it an open market plan in the coming days.

Revised Airtel Rs 149 Prepaid Plan
Airtel prepaid customers can check the revised Rs 149 plan availability for their number by heading over to Airtel website or through My Airtel application. So, what is new with the Rs 149 plan? Well, Airtel is now offering 1GB data per day, 100 SMS per day, and unlimited voice calls including roaming calls for 28 days.

Earlier Airtel Rs 149 Prepaid Plan
Previously, Airtel used to offer 1GB of 3G/4G data, 100 SMS per day, and unlimited voice calls for 28 days. This change was made just a couple of days ago. Before this change, Airtel used to offer just unlimited Airtel to Airtel voice calls and 1GB of 4G data for 28 days.

So, that’s a massive turnaround from Airtel. The telco also revised several other unlimited combo prepaid plans of Rs 399, Rs 199, Rs 448 and Rs 509. The Rs 199, Rs 448 and Rs 509 tariff plans now offer 1.4GB data per day for the validity period, but the Rs 399 tariff plan’s validity is extended to 84 days from the earlier 70 days validity.

The Bharti Mittal-led telecom company revised the Rs 149 tariff plan because of Jio’s Republic Day Offers. Still, Reliance Jio is ahead of Airtel with the Rs 149 plan as it gives 1.5GB data per day, as opposed to Airtel’s 1GB data per day. Nevertheless, it’s a positive sign for consumers that a leading telecom operator is looking to compete with a newcomer like Reliance Jio. However, it’s not a good sign for Airtel though as the telco recently reported its seventh consecutive quarter profit loss.

My advice to all Service Providers of India:
Do not complete with each other anymore.
Provide a Plan 300 NATIONAL (Validity 30 days @ INR 300/-) and offer A1 Service with following benifits:
1. Unlimited National calling (Including roaming to Landline & Mobile)
2. Free SMS 100/day
3. 1GB per day 4G/3G
Service Providers should concentrate on Best Quality of Service.
ALL SHOULD REMEMBER THAT THERE IS NO FREE LUNCH IN THIS WORLD.
IF ANYONE WANTS GOOD SERVICE THEN ONE SHOULD BE WILLING TO PAY FOR IT..
