With the stepping of Reliance Jio into the game, the Indian telecom sector has forever changed. With the prices going down day by day and the telcos offering plans with maximum benefits the users have a reason to be happy as in this ongoing battle of the telecom operators, the companies are launching new plans constantly to lure new customers all the while launching new offers, cashbacks and schemes to ensure that their existing customers stay. In this battle, Bharti Airtel, Reliance Jio and Vodafone India are clearly the major players. We have compiled a list down below of all the best prepaid plans being offered by these telcos.


Airtel 4G
Airtel’s new introduction is the Rs 499 prepaid plan which is offering the users unlimited local and STD calls with free roaming and 2GB of 4G data per day. This plan comes with a validity of 82 days. The total amount of 4G data in this plan is 164GB. The plan also comes bundled with 100 SMS. Airtel also launched a new Rs 558 plan with 3GB Data on offer for 82 days.

There is also the Rs 448 recharge pack which offers unlimited local/STD calls with roaming facility and 100 SMS per day for 82 days. The data benefits, however, in this plan are low with the daily FUP limit being 1.4GB per day.

There is also a more affordable option by Airtel which comes at the price of Rs 349 and comes with unlimited local and STD calling along with 2.5GB 4G data per day for a period of 28 days. You also get unlimited roaming incoming and outgoing calls along with 100 local and national SMSes per day.

And the best highlight of the Airtel 4G plans in India is that the voice calling is unlimited as there’s no FUP limit on a daily or monthly basis. This is something Airtel has introduced to counter Reliance Jio and its unlimited voice calling scheme.

I get usable data speeds ranging from kbps to up to 40mbps through out three states (Maharashtra , Gujarat & Rajasthan) depending on the load & signal strength.

After the roll out of 4g , data coverage has increased . The speeds , if you compare one year back have decreased.

They have dropped to 3g era . 3g experience was more or less same as congested 4g.

That’s because of most of the people are latched on to Jio!!!!!

When it was Rs.250 per GB I could use the full 1 GN and recharge some more to get data.

But most of the users (not exploiters) cannot even use 1 GB data in a day after jio.

I mean the data speed is worse in all the operators at all the technologies (2G, 3G and 4G).

Even before the age of pre 5G, not even a single operator is giving at least true 2G EDGE speed to each and every user anytime and anywhere. Then think of 3G and 4G speed !!!

True! All networks are badly congested during peak times!
My dad’s Vodafone 3G reached even 1MBps after 12 AM, but hardly reached 30kBps at 8 PM!
My Jio is highly varying 7 PM to 12 AM b/w 150to500 kBps. After midnight easily going until 2.5MBps!!
The only way of overcoming this is using latest LTE+ tech, but operators are not bothered about thinking smart it seems…

Right. But OEMs are not interested in manufacturing of LTE+ handset and thus a few handset with LTE+ are selling dear.

I could also use the full 900 MB on Airtel back then in postpaid. But that was over a month, not a day. Even back then the so-called best and fastest network was utter BS. If you want to pay 250rs per GB (which is highly unlikely since you’re such a cheapskate) then your Airtel still has many per GB plans which make you pay 100rs or something which you will be happy with since Airtel doesn’t have much 4G coverage in your place and you will enjoy 1GB 2G on 3G for a whole month.

2G EDGE speed is worst with AVOID group.

I Agree , They are offering with tooo much data and calls to Jam all networks

A simple 200-500 mins free per month and 5-10gb data should be sufficient.

Wifi at home would also reduce the burden.

I have 550gb of unused data which i cant use as there is WiFi at work and Home.

Can’t agree more. And DoT should approve WiFi calling ASAP. This will reduce congestion in urban areas as it allows call routing through the internet and thus reducing the burden on airwaves.

Obviously Friend.

I am using INTERNET SPEED METER PRO app. I have found that I use less than 10 GB mobile data per month in addition to the wired broadband data.
