  • Idea Aiming To Tackle Jiophone Waiting For Right Time

To counter Mukesh Ambani -led Reliance Jio, India's largest telecom operator Airtel has rolled out new plans for its prepaid users. Among the new data plans the country's biggest operator has launched recently are the Rs. 349 and Rs. 5 prepaid recharge packs.

The tariff war among the Indian telecom companies sees no end in sight as they continue to roll out new tariff plans to give the rivals a run for their money.

Reliance Jio has just about started to test its new feature phone; incumbent operators in the telecom industry are still adjusting to the major ripples created by Jio services, and it should get ready for yet another storm.

With recharge of Rs 15, Airtel subscribers will be allowed to make calls to the same network at 10 paisa per minute for a period of 27 days. There are 2 sachet offers for Rs 54 and Rs 24 with validity of 7 and 2 Days, respectively. It is clear that Jio beats Airtel with this plan by offering free calls outside Jio's circle whereas Airtel limits users to its own circle. In this SuperWeek pack is included unlimited V2V local calls and STD call.

Airtel to Airtel unlimited calls (local + STD), along with 2G 4G data for 28 days.

Rs 199 plan will get you unlimited local mobile calls plus 1 GB 2G/3G/4G data for 28 days.

In the Rs 198 plan, Airtel is offering unlimited local and STD calls with 1GB data for 28 days. Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani announced the Jio Welcome offer in September 2016 which offered free data to its users for four months. Though the new plans still start at Rs 19, the data offered and validity of most plans has been increased.

Jio entered the telecom market in India with free voice call offer a year back. The validity of airtel Rs.349 pack is 28 days. Post the exhaustion of 20GB in 56 days, the internet speed is reduced to 128kbps. 100 minutes of the local calls and STD calls to other networks and 250MB or 50MB of data. The Rs 87 plan is a bonus card. Jio's predatory business model, typified by its use of "Summer Surprise" and "Dhan Dhana Dhan" offers, saw it disrupt the market by working around and not within TRAI-framed guidelines.

Idea Cellular has raised net neutrality worries about proposed 4G phones of Reliance Jio. It also offers 2GB of 4G data for 28days.

Believe it or not, India is now the world's largest country when it comes to data consumption.

Others include 899 for 3.5 GB per day and Rs 648 for 2.5 GB per day.
