Telecom operator, Reliance Communications (RCom) has come up with a new tariff plan with benefits in-line with incumbent telecom operators. The Anil Ambani-led company has unveiled a new Rs. 349 plan, which offers both data and voice calling benefits for 28 days.
RCom is calling this plan as ‘Freedom Pack,’ with unlimited calling and 28GB data. However, the voice calls are not unlimited as RCom claims. RCom is limiting the voice calls to just 150 minutes per day, unlike other operators who’re giving 300 minutes per day. RCom did not mention any weekly cap though, like other operators who have put up 1200 minutes as a weekly cap.
Coming to the data balance, it gives 1GB data per day for 28 days, making it 28GB data. That said, RCom is giving 5GB of 4G data for 4G subscribers and 23GB of 4G Lite, which is 2G/3G data. This offer is valid for both GSM and LTE subscribers.
Also, RCom confirmed that this new offer is not valid for RCom Gujarat subscribers, which is a letdown from the company. In recent times, RCom is finding new ways to make a comeback into the telecom market which is currently flooded with attractive plans from top telecom operators.
RCom recently lapsed its merger with Aircel blaming the regulatory rules in India. This plan from RCom is aimed at Reliance Jio’s Rs. 399 plan and Bharti Airtel’s Rs. 399 plan. Both the plans from Jio and Airtel offer 1GB data per day and unlimited voice calls for 84 days, but RCom’s plan is valid only for 28 days, and that too with several limitations.
What do you think of this new plan from RCom? Will it increase the company’ subscriber base? Let us know in the comments below.
