Data tariff war among major telecom operators in India continues even after Reliance Jio scaled down its free unlimited data offer introduced in October last year and a few more attractive plans. It appears like telecom service providers like Bharti Airtel and Vodafone will now trouble Reliance Jio with their new data and voice calling plans.
Bharti Airtel has now introduced a new data and voice calling plan for its prepaid customers. Its users can avail 70GB of data (1GB of 3G/4G data per day) with a validity of 70 days for a recharge of Rs 448.
It also comes with free 100 daily SMS and unlimited voice calls (local + STD + roaming) under the condition that the users can avail only 250 minutes daily or 1,000 minutes per week, after which 30 paise per minute will be charged. However, other networks have similar tariff plans that can give it a tough competition.
Here are best 4G data tariff plans you can avail in November 2017 from Reliance Jio, Airtel, Vodafone and Idea:
