Bharti Airtel, the country’s largest telecom service provider, is now offering 3GBs of 3G/4G data per day for Rs. 799. Besides this, customers will also get unlimited local and STD calls under the Rs. 799 recharge pack. The Rs. 799 plan, which is valid for a period of 28 days, is only for prepaid users, according to the Airtel website - airtel.in. With the arrival of billionaire Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio, incumbent telecom operators have ramped up offers to attract customers. Telecom service providers have been releasing data and voice plans aggressively to counter the aggressive price effects of Jio, say some analysts.
In a bid to retain its premium customers, Airtel has also introduced a prepaid plan that comes with 4GBs of 3G/4G data per day for Rs. 999. This pack by Airtel has a validity of 28 days. In a recharge pack priced at Rs. 349, Airtel offers 1 GB of 4G data per day for 28 days along with unlimited local and voice calls. How Airtel 3GB data/day plan is compared to Vodafone offers
