Airtel updates Rs 448, Rs 509 plans to go against Jio

The Mukesh Ambani-owned company has reduced rates by Rs 50 across its all 1GB plans. The company has introduced special 1.5GB per day data plans. The validity of the pack remains the same, 28 days. These new plans are valid in most of the Vodafone 4G circles such as Mumbai, Chennai, Tamil Nadu, etc.

Rs 499 plan: The new price of this plan is Rs 449 and it offers 91GB data for 91 days.

The Rs 448 plan will now provide 126GB of data for a period of 84 days and the Rs 498 plan will give a total of 136GB data over a period of 91 days.

The Rs 509 plan, on the other hand, offers validity of 91 days and at the same price as a similar plan from Reliance Jio but with more validity.

Airtel's new offer is in line with Jio's Rs 799 prepaid plan that offers a total of 84GB 4G data with a daily FUP limit of 3GB for 28 days.

Having said that, at the time of writing this, Airtel's ₹448 and ₹509 prepaid plans aren't available in all the circles, hence, do check the price of a prepaid plan, data offered and the validity before you recharge. Airtel offers unlimited voice calls and 1GB daily data. After Reliance Jio made a recent attempt to give competitors a tough time, the leader of the Indian telecom market Airtel revealed it had a neat trick up its sleeve.

The company will also offer 20 per cent more data to users of Rs 399 plan by enhancing its validity by two weeks under its Happy New Year 2018 offer, sources added. However, users will get 250 minutes per day or 1,000 minutes per week of calls.

A company source claimed that "this is the first of many announcements to come" and that "2018 will bring unprecedented value to all Jio customers". These include the Rs 198 scheme which has increased its data promise from 28GB to 42GB, a 14GB boost. The plan also offers unlimited local and STD calls with unlimited SMS.
