People have been consuming more data than average. This is because of the imposed lockdown. Office goers now have to work from their homes and according to some stats, a large percentage of people aren’t using broadband connections but mobile internet. But no one knows how long the lockdown will go for. That is why some people are going for longer prepaid plans so that they don’t have to recharge their devices again and again. Some of the major telcos that provide long term data plans are Reliance Jio, Airtel, and Vodafone. One of the most popular plans that these telcos offer is their 1.5GB daily data plan for the long term. Let’s take a look at what each of the telco offers.

Talking about the long-term 1.5GB daily data plans offered by Airtel, Vodafone, and Reliance Jio, in terms of benefits, Airtel steals the show. In terms of the number of days, the plan is valid for, Jio takes a backseat but at the same time it is cheapest amongst the three and is still long-term. For calls, all the telcos are offering unlimited calling except for Jio when calls are made from Jio-to-Non Jio devices, then there are FUP minutes offered by the telco which when exhausted, you will have to purchase again. Airtel is arguably offering the best 1.5GB long-term plan here.
