Airtel, Vodafone and Idea are now all set to challenge Reliance Jio Prime with their Free Unlimited Data offers.
Reliance Jio declared a data war offering 28 GB + 5GB extra data for users who sign up for their Prime membership by paying Rs 99, which is a one-time fee. Reliance Jio Prime hasRs. 303 recharge pack that allows user to consume 1GB of data whenever they choose to.
On the other hand, Airtel’s Rs. 345 plan puts a restriction of 500MB data consumption during the day and the remaining 500MB data between 12am and 6am. Those who want to use 1GB data per day without any restrictions of timing can opt for the Rs. 549 pack, which provides 28GB data with a 1GB daily data cap without any restrictions of time. Airtel users who purchase the Rs. 345 or Rs. 549 before March 31 will get the offer for 12 months. Similar to this, Jio Prime users get to the extra data under the monthly Rs. 303 plan with a one-time annual recharge of Rs. 99.
Vodafone has a similar offer where you can get 28GB data at Rs 342 or Rs 346, which are part of ‘Welcome Back Offers’. The deal: 10GB data, voice calls of up to 300 minutes per day for Rs 346. The other offer of Rs 342 has 28GB of data per month with FUP of 1GB per day. Additionally, every customer who recharges with these plans will be whitelisted, and can then continue with the same plan for the next 11 months.
Telecom operator Idea Cellular has also launched a similar recharge pack, priced at Rs. 348. Under this plan, customers get 500MB of data per day for 28GB data, totaling to 14GB data per 28 days. The plan does not have any time restrictions, and comes with unlimited local and STD calls. However, unlike the Airtel and Jio recharge packs, the Idea plan does not seem to open to the public, and is currently on offer only to select customers.
