Airtel vs Reliance Jio: Best available recharge plans

Airtel vs Reliance Jio: Best available recharge plans

To counter Mukesh Ambani -led Reliance Jio, India's largest telecom operator Airtel has rolled out new plans for its prepaid users. Now, there are slew of plans from companies other than Reliance Jio that also offer 1GB data (or even more in some cases) per day. Jio, the telecom arm of Reliance Industries helmed by Mukesh Ambani disrupted the market with its free voice calls data packages at dirt cheap prices.

With recharge of Rs 15, Airtel subscribers will be allowed to make calls to the same network at 10 paisa per minute for a period of 27 days. Similarly, Rs 40 plan will give 35 minutes of talktime, Rs 60 plan will give 58 minutes of talktime, Rs 90 pack will offer 88 minutes of talktime with unlimited validity.

The company with its Rs 30 recharge is offering talktime of Rs 27 with unlimited validity.

Under Jio's Rs 399 plan, unlimited local and STD calls are being offered with 1 GB data per day for 84 days.

Get local+STD calls at 30 paisa/minute, for 56 days.

Rs 349 plan offer: 10% cashback on recharge of Rs 349 by opening Airtel Payments Bank account.

Rs. 199 plan: Unlimited local mobile calls plus 1GB 2G/3G/4G data for 28 days.

Rs 5 plan offers 4 GB 3G/4G data for 7 days.

At present, the biggest daily data scheme from Jio is 2GB per day, though there has been a rumor that the company will unveil a 5GB-per-day scheme at Rs 999 for 28 days.

Airtel's Rs. 399 plan suits best for those who require 4G data and voice calls at best rates.

"Free voice (calls) becomes a reality in India". There is, however, no cap on daily data usage in this plan. That changed when Reliance Jio entered the telecom sector and offered its users lifetime of free voice calls and text messages on its network.

Only 1% of Indians spent more than Rs 800 on monthly tariff plans. Both the data packs come with attractive data as well as free calling incentives. For the last seven consecutive months, Jio has topped the 4G data speed chart. The only difference is that Jio plan doesn't have the 1GB FUP limit under this plan. Surprisingly, the JioPhone had reached 6 million bookings within 3 days of its online booking date. This prompted the competition to upgrade their networks to the latest standards, with Airtel and Vodafone announcing the launch of VoLTE networks in the coming days. "Jio customers alone are consuming 125 crore GB of that data", Jio said.
