Airtel infects - Jio's Plan

Airtel Makes tremendous changes in there Postpaid Plans with Jio effect of free calls and More Data, Airtel Thanks is new Magic to Indian customers.

Airtel has made significant changes to the postpaid plans on offer for new and existing subscribers. The revised plans come with the dual effect of not only streamlining the postpaid bill plans and also improve the bundles which subscribers can now access. This comes at a time when Airtel is competing with Reliance Jio and Vodafone, in what is a pitched battle for market share while not impacting the average revenue per user (ARPU).

For new starters, the Rs 399, Rs 649, Rs 1,199 and Rs 2,999 plans have been removed and are no longer available for new users or for existing Airtel postpaid users to switch to. That leaves us with the four postpaid plans to choose from at the moment—Rs 499 now becomes the entry point to the line-up, Rs 749, Rs 999 and Rs 1,599 which now becomes the highest priced bill plan that Airtel has to offer at the moment. All these bill plans are bundling add-ons including subscription for Netflix, Amazon Prime and more.


The Rs 499 plan now replaces the earlier Rs 399 plan as the lowest priced Airtel postpaid plan. With this plan, you get 75GB 4G/3G data with unused data rollover, unlimited local, STD and roaming calls as well as 100 SMS per day. The Airtel Thanks benefits include the Netflix subscription for 3 months (this is the basic SD streaming plan which otherwise costs Rs 500 per month), one year of Amazon Prime subscription which is otherwise priced at Rs 999 per year, Zee5 premium subscription, Airtel TV’s Premium tier, and handset protection. The ARPU requirements could be one of the reasons why the Rs 399 plan has been eliminated in favor of the Rs 499 plan.

The Rs 749 plan now includes 125GB of data with unused data rollover, unlimited local, STD, and roaming calls as well as 100 SMS per day. The Rs 749 plan can be used as one single bill plan for two primary connections and one add-on connections. The Airtel Thanks benefits include a free add-on Airtel postpaid connection, Netflix subscription for 3 months (this is the basic SD streaming plan which otherwise costs Rs 500 per month), one year of Amazon Prime subscription which is otherwise priced at Rs 999 per year, Zee5 premium subscription, Airtel TV’s Premium tier and handset protection.
