Aircel is offering its customers 1GB of 3G data at a price of Rs. 76 on its mobile app. Aircel, which last month announced free incoming calls on national roaming on its network across the country, is also offering additional 100MB of free data on recharges above Rs. 50, the telecom company said in a press release on Wednesday. “Tapping the increasing trend of customers choosing to recharge their phones online or through apps, Aircel…has launched special Data and Calling packs on its mobile application,” the press release by Aircel noted.

1GB @ Rs. 76

Aircel’s 1GB of 3G data on offer in a recharge of Rs. 76 will come with a validity of 10 days, it said.

“The exciting offers are designed keeping the customer demands at the forefront and giving them best value offers with Aircel,” the company said.

Through apps, we know our customers, their plans, usage, and the services they are interested in, and hence have curated these products basis the trends observed,” Aircel chief marketing officer Anupam Vasudev said.

Some analysts say the aggressive pricing by Reliance Jio has led to high competition in the Indian telecom industry, forcing existing players to come up with lower tariffs and lucrative schemes.
