Jio Effect: Airtel announces Rs 249 prepaid plan with 2GB daily 4G data, refreshes Rs 349 GB plan to offer more data
  • Both, the Rs 249 and Rs 349 prepaid plans offers free calls, 100 SMS per day and more but the former comes with 2GB 4G data per day whereas the latter offers 3GB daily data, 1GB more from what it previously offered.

Bharti Airtel has announced a new prepaid plan priced at Rs 249 under which its user will get unlimited local and STD calls, 2GB of 4G data per day along with 100 SMS per day for 28 days. Alongside the new prepaid pack, the company has also revamped its Rs 349 recharge which now offers 3GB 4G data per day, along with unlimited local, STD and roaming calls, and 100 SMS per day. It previously offered the same benefits but with lower 2GB daily data. With both the recharges, one doesn’t really get truly unlimited calling as it’s capped at 300 minutes per day and 1,000 minutes a week, and the user will have to pay 30 paisa per minute after crossing it. The plans are available in the telcos Delhi NCR and Maharashtra circle, but one is advised to check before performing the recharge.

This new recharge by Airtel comes soon after it rolled out the Rs 499 prepaid plan. The recharge is aimed at users who want more data per day for a longer period of time. The recharge offers ‘unlimited’ free local and STD calls with free roaming, which is capped at 300 minutes per day and 1,000 minutes in a week. After exhausting the free calling minutes, Airtel subscribers will be charged at 30 paise per minute. It also comes with 2GB of 4G data per day with 100 SMS and a validity of 82 days. 

The new plan by Airtel seems to have been a response to Reliance Jio’s Rs 251 Cricket Pack, which offers 102 GB 4G data with unlimited calling and access to Jio’s suite of apps for 51 days. Jio announced the new recharge just before IPL 2018 commenced, along with its "Cricket Play Along Festival" where one can use the MyJio app for participating in contests for winning cash prizes, a "premium" house in Mumbai, 25 cars, and more.
