So, that’s a massive turnaround from Airtel. The telco also revised several other unlimited combo prepaid plans of Rs 399, Rs 199, Rs 448 and Rs 509. The Rs 199, Rs 448 and Rs 509 tariff plans now offer 1.4GB data per day for the validity period, but the Rs 399 tariff plan’s validity is extended to 84 days from the earlier 70 days validity.

The Bharti Mittal-led telecom company revised the Rs 149 tariff plan because of Jio’s Republic Day Offers. Still, Reliance Jio is ahead of Airtel with the Rs 149 plan as it gives 1.5GB data per day, as opposed to Airtel’s 1GB data per day. Nevertheless, it’s a positive sign for consumers that a leading telecom operator is looking to compete with a newcomer like Reliance Jio. However, it’s not a good sign for Airtel though as the telco recently reported its seventh consecutive quarter profit loss.
