Mumbai: Amid high competition in the telecom market with the new entrant Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel - India's largest telecom operator so far - is offering 300 GB of mobile data for 360 days at Rs. 3,999.
Along with 300 GB of internet data, Bharti Airtel is offering unlimited local/STD calls to subscribers for the period of one year, according to its website airtel.in.
Benefits offered to Bharti Airtel prepaid customers under the telecom company's Rs. 3,999 recharge plan include outgoing calls in national roaming and free SMS with a daily limit of 100.
India's telecom sector is witnessing high competition due to aggressive mobile data pricing and free voice calling offers by Reliance Jio.
Reliance Jio of Mukesh Ambani offers a range of recharge options to its prepaid customers. Starting at Rs. 19 (validity of one day), Jio recharge plans go all the way up to Rs. 9,999 (360 days).
Reliance Jio is also offering a cashback up to Rs. 2,500 to its prepaid customers on recharges of Rs. 399 and above.
Interestingly, while Mukesh Ambani is going all guns to capture the telecom market in India, his younger brother Anil Ambani in a disappointing move announced to stop all voice calls for his Reliance Telecom subscribers.
The sudden decision by Anil Ambani's R Com had seen subscribers rushing to port their existing numbers with other telecom operators.
Ironically, R Com sent SMSs to its subscribers saying all voice calls will be stopped November 30 onwards. Subscribers however were surprised when they found their phones without network access from November first week itself.
