Telecom major Bharti Airtel on Thursday unveiled unlimited voice calls and more 4G data under a new plan, while keeping the old subscribers to 4G unhappy as it costs Rs.200 per GB on these devices currently.
On the contrary, Reliance Jio has been providing 1GB per day free on its 4G devices and the freebeis have been extended up to March 31, 2017 by the parent company Reliance Industries.
Under the new plan, for Rs.345, Bharti Airtel will allow users to make unlimited calls to any network and consume 1 GB 4G data for 28 days. This is still far behind Jio offer of the same at no cost until March 31, 2017.
Airtel also offered another plan for Rs.145 where users will 300 MB of 4G data and unlimited calls within Airtel network for 28 days, it said. However, none of these offers actually compete with Reliance Jio at least not until March 2017. Even after the freebies, Reliance is offering free calls, no roaming charges and plus 1GB to 10GB dataplan for 4G devices at Rs.149.
