Just two telecom operators, Bharti Airtel and Reliance Jio, have committed to invest ₹74,000 crore this year alone, which is more than 10% of the total government estimate, COAI director general Rajan S Mathews said. All the roaming calls (incoming and outgoing) are totally free and unlimited in this plan. This Rs. 349 plan has been upgraded from today and the customers will get 3GB of data per day instead of 2.5GB data for 28 days.
Under the latest plan, Vodafone is also offering unlimited local/STD and roaming calls to any network in India and 100 SMS daily along with the data offer. Interestingly, the new Vodafone recharge comes soon after the launch of its Rs. 569 prepaid pack, which also offers 3GB of data in a day. The plan also includes free caller tune service, but it does not come with any free data.
Airtel also has a similar offer.More news: More than 1600 arrested in anti-Putin street protests in Russian Federation
Other than the data, this new Rs 349 plan from Vodafone India will also offer unlimited voice calls with daily and weekly limitation and 100 SMS per day for 28 days. We would like to mention, BSNL now offers 4G service in limited circles only. The validity of the plan is 54 days. It is now available in Assam, Mumbai, Gujarat, Karnataka, Kerala, Rajasthan, and Uttar Pradesh West/East circles. Under the new plan, the company is offering 3GB of 4G data per day along with other benefits with a validity of 28 days. Vodafone also has a prepaid plan of Rs 511 that offers 2GB of data per day with a validity of 84 days. However, it must be noted that none of these plans provides free SMS benefit.
Last week Airtel also revised its one of the best-prepaid plan 349. However, BSNL charges standard call rates for voice calls made to mobile numbers in Delhi-NCR and Mumbai telecom circles, despite the "unlimited voice call" claim, unlike private players like Jio, Airtel and Vodafone. The daily data usage limit in the BSNL Recharge plan 349 is 1GB. It has Rs. 549 pack that offers 3.5GB 4G data per day along with Unlimited Local, STD+Roaming calls and 100 SMSes per day for a validity period of 28 days.
