This seems to be a tough competition and immensely beneficial on the subscribers’ front. Airtel and Idea has introduced a new plan of FRC 495 for new customers in competition with the FRC 399 plan of Reliance Jio.
The Rs. 399 plan, if opted by the new customers costs them Rs. 498, which includes the Rs. 99 Jio prime membership cost while the new customers of Airtel and Idea gets an alike plan at Rs. 495 now.
Delving deeper into the FRC 495 plan by Airtel and Idea, this plan offers 1 GB of 4G Data per day on subscription along with unlimited voice calls and is valid for a span of 84 days. However, this offer is restricted to new customers only.
The other major constraint of this package is that both the telecom operators have limited their voice call duration to 300 minutes per day that has been further limited to 1,200 minutes per week; whereas, the Rs. 399 plan by Reliance Jio offers 1 GB of 4G data per day along with unlimited voice calls with no such limitation constraint for the same span of 84 days.
There are several other plans that are been introduced by the Companies to keep up with the steady competition. It must be remembered that all these plans by all the telecom operators are for prepaid customers only.
Airtel has recently introduced a festive plan for Rs. 799 that offers 3 GB of 3G / 4G days per day along with unlimited local and STD voice calls and is valid for a span of 28 days.
