Airtel launches Rs 499 postpaid plan to counter Reliance Jio's 509 plan

The company offers unlimited local, STD and free roaming calls along with 40GB data that comes with data roll over facility meaning your unused data will be carry forwarded in your next month's plan. This plan is the revamped version of its older plan. All these offers are available to the customers only at Rs 499.

Under this plan, users will get 40GB of 3G/4G data for a validity period of a month. Alternatively, you can try out Airtel's Rs. 799 plan which offers similar benefits to the Jio plan, but it doesn't have any daily cap on data usage. The Airtel's plan also offers Wynk TV subscription, access to its library of Live TV and Movies, and Handset Damage Protection.

Previously, Airtel offered a new long-term plan for its prepaid customers, which comes with a price tag of Rs 995 and it comes with a validity of 180 days. The plan comes with 100 GB of data per month, free unlimited calls on STD, Roaming and local and two months access to Netflix.

To start with, users will get unlimited local and STD voice calls along with free incoming and outgoing on national roaming.

Airtel's New Plan Offers Unlimited Voice Calls and 40GB Data at Rs. 499

It appears that Bharti Airtel Limited is in its utmost effort to game up with Vodafone and tackle Reliance Jio's offers.

Large operators have been flagging pressure on revenue and profitability, blaming the rock-bottom data tariffs and free offerings of newcomer Reliance Jio for deteriorating financial health of the sector. Let's cheers the competition! Yes, as Jio says it is purely unlimited data so the company basically offers unlimited data for one billing cycle.

Reliance Jio's Rs 509 plan is the one that comes with 60GB data, though it should be noted there is a Rs 600 security deposit for the plan.

So now we come to the question which plan is better? However, the daily FUP limit is 3GB per day with this plan. For those who want a Jio postpaid plan without any FUP, the Rs 1199 plan is an option.
