Low Range Postpaid Plans from Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea Compared

While all the telcos are offering postpaid plans, these plans are not competitive owing to the differences in pricing and benefits and are thus better suited for different customer needs individually

  • Reliance Jio is offering a single postpaid plan of Rs 199
  • Bharti Airtel has the most expensive postpaid starting point of Rs 499

Everyone in the telecom industry knows that the postpaid plans are indispensable for the telecom operators. The postpaid plans are an essential source of revenue for the companies, as even though there are fewer subscribers in the loop, the revenue generated by these customers is substantial for the telcos. Currently, the top three telcos in the industry are all shipping postpaid plans, but the thing to note is that all the postpaid plans by the telcos are different and not really competitive in the lower price ranges. Creating the differences between these plans is the pricing and the benefits which these offerings bundle. So, let’s take a look at these lower rung postpaid plans by the telecom operators.

Reliance Jio Postpaid Plan of Rs 199

Reliance Jio’s postpaid offering is the simplest one across all the telecom operators. When it comes to postpaid, the telecom operator does not have a strong front, and it merely offers a single postpaid plan of Rs 199. The Rs 199 postpaid plan by Reliance Jio bundles 25GB data per month along with unlimited local, STD and roaming calls. There is also a charge levied of Rs 20 per GB in case the subscribers use data beyond the limit of 25GB. The subscribers will also enjoy SMS services on this plan. Also, they will be able to activate international roaming with a single click, without any cost.

Airtel Postpaid Plan of Rs 499

Airtel, in its postpaid plan revision has done a significant change and upped the base price of its plans. The Bharti Mittal led telco has now postpaid plans which start at Rs 499, and there is no lesser priced postpaid plan from the telco. This Rs 499 postpaid plan from the telco offers 75GB data per month, but the data is accompanied by the data rollover feature. Besides this, the plan also bundles local, STD and roaming calls. The subscribers will enjoy free Netflix subscription of three months with this plan in addition to getting Amazon Prime one year subscription.

Along with this, the subscribers enjoy 100 SMS in the plan. The benefits in this plan include a free subscription to Idea Movies and TV, and apart from that, there are no additional features.

Arpit spends his day closely following the telecom and tech industry. A music connoisseur and a night owl, he also takes a deep interest in the Indian technology start-up scene and spends rest of his time spilling poetry and stories on paper.
