Airtel offers unlimited 4G data for 90 days at Rs 1,495
MUMBAI: In a bid to retain its customers from migrating to Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel has launched a special 4G data pack that offers free data for 90 days.
While the pack is available for Rs 1,495 for existing users, new users can avail this offer via first recharge of Rs 1,494.
The pack is currently available in Delhi and will be launched across other circles over the next few days.
For a similar price point, Jio is offering 20 GB + unlimited data at night for Rs 1,499. The Wi-Fi data limit for this plan is 40 GB. However, Jio is offering free voice calls besides content-rich apps with subscription worth Rs 1,250 for free.
Bharti Airtel director of operations (India & South Asia) Ajai Puri said, “At Airtel, we are focused on providing great value to customers. Customers with 4G handsets generally consume large amounts of data and this proposition is specifically aimed at them. With this pack these customers can stay online round the clock without having to worry about exhausting their data limits or going for frequent recharges.”
Reliance Jio has shaken up the market by offering free voice calls for lifetime and 4G data at lower price compared to the incumbent operators.
Jio’s pre-paid tariff has 10 plans ranging from Rs 19 to Rs 4,999. The postpaid tariff has seven plans. The cheapest plan is priced Rs 149, while the highest is priced similar to pre-paid at Rs 4,999.
Recently, Idea Cellular revealed plans to launch its own TV, music and chat apps to take on Jio.
