Bharti Airtel, India’s biggest telecom network just introduced new plans to beat the competition with Reliance Jio. The new Airtel plans are applicable for the postpaid users and it provides 75GB of data and unlimited voice calls for just Rs. 499. As per the official announcement, the company has revamped its postpaid plans and offers 87.5 percent more data to the users. This new plan of Rs. 499 comes under their ‘Best Selling Postpaid Plans’ under MyPlan Infinity that also has other offerings worth Rs. 399, Rs. 649, Rs. 799, and Rs. 1,199.
For your information, the company has recently revamped its Rs. 649 plan to give 90GB of data to its subscribers. However, there were no updates to the other existing plans including Rs. 399, Rs. 799 and Rs. 1,199. Previously the same plan was giving 40GB of 3G/ 4G data to its subscribers. It is worth pointing that the direct competitor of Airtel, Jio is providing an Rs. 199 plan only, which provides 25GB of data to its subscribers. So it is pointless to explain that Airtel is beating down the Jio in India. Since the war is eternal, Jio might introduce new postpaid plans soon.
This revamped postpaid plan costs Rs. 499 and is offering 100 free messages per day and unlimited voice calls. There is no FUP capping for this plan. This plan reportedly includes 3G/ 4G data with rollover facility up to 500GB, meaning the unused data of one month gets added on to the next one. With this plan, Airtel subscribers can avail a one-year subscription to Amazon Prime. The Rs. 499 unlimited plan is said to also come with Wynk TV subscription, access to its library of Live TV and Movies, and Handset Damage Protection.
The company ranks amongst the top 3 mobile service providers globally in terms of subscribers. In India, the company’s product offerings include 2G, 3G and 4G wireless services, mobile commerce, fixed line services, high-speed home broadband, DTH, enterprise services including national & international long distance services to carriers. In the rest of the geographies, it offers 2G, 3G, 4G wireless services and mobile commerce. Bharti Airtel had over 413 million customers across its operations at the end of March 2018.
