As the telco-war among the network providers in India intensifies, the largest telecom services provider in India, Airtel has launched some new offers to standout in the competition. These Airtel new offers are focussed on providing more data to its prepaid customers and in addition to that the telecom giant has also revamped some of its older prepaid plans as well.
Airtel new offers: Revamped Rs.349 plan
After announcing 100 percent cash back on recharge of the Rs.349 plan, Airtel has again revamped the plan. The Airtel 349 plan is a part of Airtel unlimited plan that offers the users 1.5GB 4G data per day for 28 days instead of 1GB data per day. Additionally, the plan also includes 3000 free SMSes and unlimited calling to all the local and STD numbers across the country. The revamped plan now also allows free outgoing calls while you’re on roaming network, which is an added bonus. However, this Airtel prepaid plan has its limitations since you only can have 250 minutes of free calls every day and 1000 minutes of free calls a week. Exceeding this limit would make you call chargeable with Airtel number at 10p per minute and 30p per minute for other networks.
This new and revamped Rs.349 plan now stands head to head against the Reliance Dhan Dhana Dhan offer that offers 70GB data for 70 Days and unlimited calling at Rs.399. Not only this Airtel has also announced the launch of some new plans that will take on Reliance Jio’s unlimited plans.
Airtel new offers: Rs.448 plan launched
One of the best Airtel new offers to launch recently, this prepaid plan provides 1GB 4G data daily along with unlimited calls capped at 250 minutes per day and 1000 minutes per week. Exceeding this cap will lead to you being charged 10p for calls to Airtel and 30p for calls to other networks. This plan is a rival to Reliance Jio’s 399 plan that offers 70 GB data for a period of 70 days. Airtel’s 448 plan also provides 70GB data for 70 days to its subscribers.
Airtel new offers: Other new plans launched
The telecom giant has launched four new prepaid plans for its customers valuing Rs.799, Rs.999, Rs.1999, and Rs.3999, which are valid for 28 days, 90 days, 180 days, and 360 days respectively. Here are the details of all the newly launched Airtel prepaid data plans.
