Airtel to counter Jio with the revamp of its ₹149 recharge pack. This pack of ₹149 recharge is said to have been arrived with 1GB of data per day alongside other benefits, for a validity period of 28 days. So, with this, even after Jio continues to remain the most affordable telecom operator in India in terms of data consumption, Airtel and the other entrants have tried to match it, but still don’t quite match its prices and bundled data. Again, it needs to be noted here that the refreshed Airtel ₹149 prepaid plan now would counter Reliance Jio’s ₹149 recharge pack that comes with 1.5GB of daily data.
As per the detailed reports, the Airtel ₹149 prepaid recharge plan offers 28GB of 3G/4G data for a period of 28 days with a daily cap of 1GB data. It also welcomes additional benefits of unlimited local, STD, and roaming calls. The ₹149 plan also offers 100 free SMS messages per day. Notably, this prepaid recharge plan of Airtel is available only in select circles. However, also as per reports, Airtel might make it an open market plan in the coming days.
Now, talking of Jio, when it comes to offers close to Airtel’s ₹149 plan, Jio also has a recharge pack worth ₹149, as mentioned above. The Jio prepaid recharge plan priced at ₹149 offers 42GB of 4G data for a validity period of 28 days. In fact, it also has an additional advantage of 1.5GB daily data. The prepaid pack also comes with unlimited local, STD, and roaming voice calls. Additionally, Jio subscribers would also get 100 free SMS messages along with a free subscription to Jio apps.
