Airtel Idea RCom report fourth quarterly declines in Q2FY18 as Jio launches new offers

In any case, telecom service providers seem to be busy in countering Reliance Jio by introducing new enticing offers for its customers.

Indian telecom giant Bharti Airtel sold a half-billion-dollar stake in its mobile tower business Tuesday to help shrink its debts as it reels from a price war sparked by rival Reliance Jio. Under the 459 plan, it offers 1GB data per day with 100 SMS and unlimited calling without any daily FUP limit for the period of 84 days. This is identical to Jio's Rs. 1,999 plan, which also gives 125GB data and unlimited voice, SMS and roaming for 180 days. Oppo users using Jio SIM Card will get 100GB of 4G Data with a recharge of Rs 309 and above recharges.

The first and the second offers are limited to a maximum of 10 and 6 recharges respectively. Other than 300GB of data, you'll get your hands on unlimited local and STD calls as long as they're non-commercial, free outgoing national roaming, and 100 free SMSes per day. Most users fail to consume 1GB of data on their smartphone. Days where you end up doing some heavy duty browsing, you will not face any slow speeds.

BharatNet-2 launch to connect 1.5 lakh panchayats
By December 2017, all aforementioned Gram Panchayats will be operational on the BharatNet infrastructure. The Centre will provide total fund support of around Rs 10,000 crore to the state governments.


Airtel, Vodafone and Idea Cellular have similar tariffs, but they last just a month, which makes Jio's offers hard to turn down.

Similar to Airtel's plan, the Reliance Jio's Rs 4,999 plan won't have any upper limit on a daily basis and can access the 350GB data at any given instance.

The company is starting its prepaid plans from Rs 19 and the postpaid plans start from Rs 309. Airtel Rs 999 recharge packUnder a recharge plan priced at Rs 999, Airtel offers 60 GBs of data for a validity period of 90 days, according to its website. In the wake of energizing the Oppo mobile with one of the Jio designs, you will get an indistinguishable administration from the arrangement initially offers, while the extra 100GB data vouchers will be credited to your My Jio account.
