Airtel offers unlimited calls, 1GB Data at Rs.93

The new Maximum plan, applicable across all the circles except North East, Assam and Jammu & Kashmir, offers voice calling, SMS and data benefits like every other tariff plan launched by other operators, said a telecomtalk report. After exhaustion of 1 GB data per day limit, internet speed will get reduced to 40Kbps, according to a link along with BSNL's tweet. If compared, the BSNL plan offers a total of 180GB of data for 180 days at Rs 999.

The 28-day validity of the Airtel 93 rechrage represents a substantial increase over the 10-day validity that the pack came with till now. However, users will be charged Rs 60 paise per minute when making a local and STD call in Mumbai and Delhi. For the remaining 185 days, voice calls will be charged at 60 paise per minute for both BSNL-to-BSNL and off-net calls.

Earlier the telecom major was offering 1 GB of 3G/4G data for 10 days, without any daily cap on its Rs 93 recharge plan. The plan further offers unlimited calls including national roaming, local, and STD. This is twice the high-speed data the country's biggest operator is offering with its Rs. 93 pack. While Jio offers 60GB of 4G data, unlimited voice calling, and 100 SMS per day for a validity period of 90 days, Airtel offers unlimited voice calls including national roaming calls, 100 local and STD SMS per day, 60GB of data on all handsets for 90 days. The packs also give 60GB of data for 90 days. However, the bundled SMS messages with the Jio recharge are capped at just 300, while Airtel users will get 100 SMS messages per day, meaning 2,800 for the entire validity. But again the validity stands short to BSNL's.


Idea Cellular has updated three of its Nirvana postpaid plans, priced at Rs 499, Rs 649, and Rs 999. Under the Rs 4999 plan, Jio offers same benefits only with more data. Last week, the telco announced its "KOOL" offer for prepaid customers as a part of which it offered unlimited data and voice calls for 84 days at ₹1099.

Hence, BSNL's Maximum plan for prepaid customers priced at ₹999 has an edge against Jio's ₹999 tariff plan.
