A few days earlier we informed you that various telecom operators in India like Airtel, Vodafone Idea, and Jio are going to hike up the price of their existing prepaid plans from December. Well it’s December now and today all other companies announced their new tariff plans, and Jio also made an announcement. This price hike is because of the increase in taxes for these companies. And according to their statement, for giving a better experience to everyone. Well, let’s have a look at all these plans from these carriers.
Starting off with the most popular and revolutionary carrier of India, Jio. Though Jio didn’t revealed details of their new plans, they do say that these new ‘All in One’ plans will be almost 40% higher than the existing ones. The company also says that even though they are increasing the price by 40%, users will get benefits from these plans by 300%. They will make these plans effective from 6th December, and probably the details will be official on same day. We have to wait a bit to see 300% benefits.
This Joint company is also increasing their plans, and they even shared the details of their plans. Speaking about some important plans like plans having 84 days of validity, there are 3 plans priced at ₹379, ₹599, and ₹699. All these plans have 3,000 minutes of talk time for other network calls, and free calls on same network (most probably Idea to Vodafone should also be free.. The ₹379 plan has total 6GB of 4G data and 1000 SMS. The ₹599 plan comes with 4G data of 1.5GB/day along with 100 SMS/day. Lastly the ₹699 plan has 2GB/day 4G data and 100 SMS/day. Rest of the plans are mentioned in the chart below.
This another popular telecom brand of India also increased their tariff plans by 40%. There popular plans are changed similar to Vodafone Idea. For 84 days validity, Airtel has 2 new plans; ₹598 and ₹698. Both plan comes with 3,000 minutes of talk time for other network calls, and free calls on same network. The ₹598 plan comes with ₹1.5GB/day of 4G data and 100 SMS/day. And the ₹698 plan comes with ₹2GB/day of 4G data and 100 SMS/day. These and many other plans will also get some Airtel services like Airtel Xstream Premium, Wynk music subscription, etc. These new plans will be executed from 3rd December. Below are the details of all the plans.
So these are the new plans and announcements by all these major telecom companies in India. From past 3 years India is providing the cheapest 4G internet in the world. And with this move this crown might change it’s owner. Personally speaking, I found these plans expensive than before. Every company said that this hike is because of investing in the latest technology to provide much better experience. So let’s hope that this better experience will actually be better than today.
As the plans Airtel and Vodafone Idea will be applicable from 3rd December, I suggest everyone to recharge with current plans even if the expiry date is far away. That will be beneficial for you all. And for Jio users, you have a few days but still, I suggest to recharge with current plans. Now what are your thoughts and opinions on these new plans? Let us know in the comment section below.
