Reliance Jio effect Airtel unveils Rs 249 pack offers 2GB data per day unlimited calling for 28 days

With this new prepaid plan, 499 users will get daily 2GB 4G data with full speed and this is enough data to stream live IPL matches.

Bharti Airtel said it will now give 30 GB of free 4G data to any of its existing customers who upgrade to a 4G phone from a 2G or 3G device. This free data will be provided over the internet pack which they are now using. In a run against Reliance Jio's Republic Day tariff plans, Airtel has revised the popular Rs 399 prepaid plan, which now offers benefits in-line with Jio's Rs 399 prepaid plan. To be eligible for the 30GB data, Airtel customers on 2G/3G mobile will have to upgrade to 4G smartphone while remaining on the company's network. Yes, Airtel has updated its Rs 399 plan with 1.4GB data per day on offer and a validity period of 84 days (at least for some users).

Those who want to avail this offer should first check their eligibility and then only claim Airtel's free data benefits by calling on toll-free number 51111.

"While 4G smartphones are fast becoming the norm, for millions of customers with feature phones/3G devices the upgrade to a 4G smartphone is a big decision and a long term investment", said Vani Venkatesh, CMO, Bharti Airtel. The 30 GB free data will be credited to the account within 24 hours of making the claim.

This is the most recent data offering from the main telecom specialist co-op as it tries to battle the notoriety of Jio's 4G benefit in the nation. The petitioner has also submitted that Airtel further falsely represents that a subscriber needs only to obtain a 4G sim from Airtel and download the Airtel TV app to obtain a virtual "season pass" - live and free access to the IPL coverage. "We believe this will help millions of our customers to fulfill their aspiration of owning a 4G smartphone by making the transition more rewarding".
