Airtel takes on Jio with this MASSIVE offer

New Delhi, Sept 4: Feeling the heat from Jio, Bharti Airtel has launched several new recharge packs for prepaid mobile subscribers which are ranging from Rs. 8 to Rs. 399. Many telecom operators, including Airtel, have been coming up with new aggressive plans to counter Jio, which has amassed over 12 crore subscribers in a quick time span. Jio brought a massive pricing revolution in the telecom industry via its ultra-low cost data and free voice call offerings. The launch of JioPhone, a 4G feature phone from Jio, could lead to further price war and may prompt other operators to come up with low-cost handsets, reveal analysts.

Airtel 399 plan: This plan offers 1 GB data per day at 4G speed along with unlimited local and STD calls. This plan is targeted to counter Jio's Rs. 399 plan which also offers unlimited local and STD calls along with 1 GB data per day for 84 days. However, the Rs. 399 recharge plan of Airtel is being offered to select prepaid customers. Before recharge, you need to first check with the customer care, whether the plan is available on your number.

Airtel 349 plan: Airtel is offering unlimited local and STD calls plus 28 GB data (1GB/day) for 28 days under this plan.

Airtel 149 plan: This plan of Airtel offers unlimited Airtel to Airtel calls plus 2GB data at 4G speed with 28 days validity.

Recently, Airtel's profit and margins have dipped after Jio began its services in last September. In the April-June quarter this year, Airtel highlighted 75 per cent fall in its net profit at Rs. 367 crore compared to Rs. 1,462 crore in the year-ago quarter.

The competitive environment is likely to prevail in the telecom industry in the future as the new entrant Jio is likely to maintain aggressive pricing to gain market share, added Analysts.
