Airtel offers 70GB data, unlimited voice calls for 70 days at Rs 448

Leading telecom operator Airtel has launched a new offer for its prepaid customers. The new offer includes both calling and data benefits.
As part of this plan, customers get unlimited calling for both local and STD numbers as well as free outgoing on national roaming. As for data, users get 1GB 4G data per day. Over that they get 100 free SMSes a day. This plan comes at Rs 448 and is valid for 70 days.
After the revision of prices, Reliance Jio has a similar offer of unlimited calling and 1GB data per day at Rs 399. It is too valid for 70 days and has unlimited SMSes feature. A more closely priced offer, which costs Rs 459, includes the same unlimited calling and 1 GB data per day but has a validity of 84 days.
The third major telecom player Vodafone also recently announced a similar plan for its new prepaid users. The company introduced a new First Recharge Coupon (FRC) of Rs 496 for new Vodafone subscribers in Delhi and NCR. Under the Rs 496 plan, the telco is offering unlimited local and STD calls and 84GB data for 84 days. Users will have the daily FUP limit of 1GB.
Recently, Bharti Airtel announced that it is likely to shut down 3G service in next 3-4 years and refarm the spectrum linked with it for 4G services. “There is almost no spending that we are doing on 3G. Our view is in next 3-4 years we are likely to see 3G network actually shut down faster than 2G network because there are still 50 per cent of phone being shipped out in India that are feature phones,” Gopal Vittal, MD and CEO, India and South Asia, Bharti Airtel said.
He said that the company is investing in 4G technology to build more data capacity in the network. The company will use 2100 megahertz band, which is used for 3G services, for 4G services.
