Just before New Year, the telecom company introduced its Rs 93 prepaid plan to offer 1 GB 4G data with unlimited local, STD, and roaming calls, and 100 local and national SMS per day with a validity of 10 days, which was in competition with Reliance Jio's Rs 98 prepaid plan. But if you are more concerned about the data benefit than anything else, the revisions to the Airtel Rs.799 pack definitely make it more appealing than the Jio Rs.799 plan.

We have already stepped into 2018, but the "Reliance Jio effect" on its fellow network providers remains!

Jio Rs 309 prepaid recharge planJio's Rs 309 prepaid recharge offers high speed data of 49GBs with a daily 4G data limit of 1GB. The data pack offered by Jio is valid for 84 days and provides 3 GB of 3G/4G data for 28 days.

However, "unlimited" calls under the Airtel 799 pack are restricted to 250 minutes per day and 1,000 minutes per week. Apart from this, consumers will get unlimited local and STD calls along with 100 SMSes.

Reliance Jio rolled out two tariff plans priced at Rs 199 and Rs 299.

The company also revised the Airtel TV app and announced free subscription to its content for Airtel's prepaid and post-paid subscribers until June. However, Jio's Rs 799 is better for voice call is your priority. It comes with a validity of 28 days. So, the only revision that the telecom operator made to the plan is in the data offering segment.

The upload speed matters the most when a user wants to share video or photo through social media or email and download speed is required to access photo, video or any other available on the internet. Further, subscribers who purchase the new Airtel pack via Airtel Payments Bank will get a cashback worth up to Rs. 75. New customers need to recharge with Rs 229 to get the same benefits, a report by Business Standard said. The updated app also includes 29 HD channels. Jio offers 3 GBs of high speed data per day for the validity period of 28 days in this prepaid recharge plan.
