Reliance Jio vs Airtel vs Vodafone

The price war begun by Jio has severely dented the revenues of the other telecom companies. These plans were already some of the cheapest ones around, so the drop will likely make existing customers happy and attract new ones as well. The company now has some more surprises in stock - and this is a part of its Happy New Year plans for 2018.

"The telco (Jio) is covering customers across all price bands, ensuring more will join them and those who have been their subscribers remain satisfied with the huge data benefits", said the analyst quoted above.

Below are the plans, which sees a tariff price cut by Rs 50. The first one on the chopping block is Jio's Rs 199 tariff which will now go for just Rs 149.

-Rs 398: The Rs 398 plan now offers 70GB of data for 70 days, but after the update, it will offer 105GB data for 70 days validity with a daily data limit of 1.5GB. These include the Rs 198 scheme which has increased its data promise from 28GB to 42GB, a 14GB boost.

Airtel has increased the validity of its Rs. 448 and Rs. 509 plans and Idea has increased the validity of its Rs. 449 and Rs. 509 plans.

We compare the popular 1.5GB data per day plans from Reliance Jio, Airtel and Vodafone. The plan already offered 1.5GB app for each day. Under this offer, Jio launched two prepaid recharge plans priced at Rs 199 and Rs 299. These plans now offer 1GB of data per day, but after the revision, it will offer 1.5GB of data daily at the same price. According to the company, the 1.5GB data per day packs will be available in the range of Rs 198 to Rs 498. Under the plan, customers will get 28GB data with 28 days validity. Previously, the same plan used to provide 49GB data for 49 days.

All Jio plans will continue to offer free unlimited calling and SMSes within India even during roaming.
