New Delhi: Airtel has launched a new prepaid plan of Rs 399 to counter Reliance Jio’s Rs 399 Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan offer.
Airtel’s new recharge offers unlimited local and STD calls along with 1GB of 4G data per day. The validity of this plan is 84 days. Jio had earlier announced two recharge options of Rs 349 and Rs 399 which offered 1GB of 4G data and unlimited local and STD calls for 56 and 84 days respectively.
Airtel is also planning to launch a Rs 2500 mobile to compete against JioPhone. It is expected that the company could bring the phone during Diwali.
Recently, Jio announced its JioPhone which is a low-cost feature phone with 4G VoLTE. The JioPhone is free in a way as users need to shell out Rs 1500 for it, but the amount will get refunded in full after three years, on returning the device. Buyers do need to pay an initial amount of Rs 500 while pre-booking the phone.
