Airtel has launched a few updates to its current prepaid plans, in view of the increased demand of the Internet data due to lockdown across the nation. The company has doubled the data for its ₹98 plan and has also increased the talktime for few of its plans.
The telecom company will now provide 12 GB of data with the ₹98 plan instead of just 6 GB that was offered earlier. The validity of the plan remains the same at 28 days. The new ₹98 plan brings it in direct competition with what Reliance Jio offers at a similar price point. Jio offers 12 GB with the ₹101 4G data voucher plan. However, the recharge is linked to the existing plan that the user has. Airtel’s ₹98 plan can work on its own with a set amount of validity. Reliance Jio, on the other hand, offers 1000 minutes of Jio to non-Jio calling.
Airtel has also increased the talk time on few of its Talktime plans. The company is now offering a talktime of ₹480 on the recharge of ₹500. Previously, the same amount of recharge only provided a talktime of ₹423.73.
