Airtel surprises users, offers 30GB of free data

To counter Reliance Jio's Prime Membership plan of Rs.499 which offers 2GB Data a day for FREE, BSNL yesterday has announced Rs.339 Plan where it would be matching the data plan of Jio.

Bharti Airtel, in its appeal, had sought a stay on TRAI's approval to Reliance Jio to continue with the free promotional offer.

In a statement, the telecom operator said that with STV (special tariff voucher) of Rs 339 the customer would get the benefit of unlimited calls in BSNL network and unlimited 3G data of 2 GB per day with a validity of twenty-eight days.However, tThe offer is restricted for ninety days.

-The Rs 99 plan now offers unlimited calling within the BSNL network, bundled with 500 MB of data.

In the first judicial order on predatory pricing, the Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) has asked the country's telecom regulator to re-examine new entrant Reliance Jio's Happy New Year Offer.

The data provided by Airtel under this offer is free, and users will have to claim this before 31st March 2017.

Jio has courted hundred of millions of customers within a limited span, thanks to its free offers providing unlimited calling and data services.

Now in a major embarrassment, TRAI was left red-faced when TDSAT pointed out loopholes in Reliance Jio offers.

Jio had launched the inaugural free voice and data plan in September a year ago, and in December, extended the freebies till March, 2017. Moreover, Jio is offering for complete one year while Airtel is giving free data for 3 months. Even if it is not looking so good with the call offering, data is going to be a big advantage if you are happy with the data speeds offered. "We offer best prices to our customers considering the present trend of Indian telecom industry", BSNL Director for Consumer Mobility RK Mittal said.

Airtel, which had recently announced 1GB data plan at Rs 345 for its pre-paid users, is now offering great bonanza for its post-paid users as well.

Airtel postpaid customers can simply download the My Airtel app either from Google Play Store of Apple App Store and click on the message that will provide you 10GB of free data for the next three months.
