It’s evident from the above table that every telecom operator is trying to lure the customer by offering attractive recharge plans. With mobile phone cost decreasing day by day, users can afford a dual-SIM phone. Users can retain their primary number and shuffle secondary SIM as per the cheapest plan availability. We are moving towards an era where users will be incentivized for staying with the operator. The incentive can be in terms of cashback on successive recharge or more value on next recharge.
