Telecom giant Bharti Airtel cut the prices of its 4G and 3G mobile internet charges by up to 80% to as low as Rs. 51 per gigabyte under the special scheme. The recent move has been taken to counter the Reliance Jio.
Airtel subscribers, to avail the benefit will have to recharge with Rs. 1,498 against which they will get 1GB of 4G and 3G mobile internet usage and will be valid for 28 days. After the 1GB data is exhausted, the subscriber can get 1GB 4G or 3G recharges for just Rs. 51 in the period of 12 months. Moreover, there is no limit on the number of recharges during this period.
Reports also say that the company is all set to launch a similar scheme with a lower denomination of Rs. 748. The subscribers under this scheme will get 1 GB of 4G data for Rs. 99 over a period of six months. Airtel in a statement said, “These prepaid packs are live in Delhi and will get launched across circles by Aug 31, 2016”.
The company in the month of July started offering up to 67percent more data in the present 4G and 3G schemes that was followed by Idea Cellular and Vodafone.
