In a relief for its user base who were looking to upgrade to 2GB 4G data per day, Bharti Airtel launches a new annual prepaid plan with data of 2 GB. The package comes at a price of Rs 2,498. It will deliver unlimited and 100 SMS / day messaging. The benefits include free ZEE5 Premium, Airtel Xstream, and Wynk Music subscriptions. You’ll also get free anti-virus for your device, free Hellotunes and free classes from Shaw Academy valued for 28 days. There’s even a cash-back from Rs 150 on FASTag purchase.
On the other hand, Jio’s Rs 2,399 provides 2 GB per day. The recharge will be valid for a maximum of 365 days and will provide unrestricted calling facilities for Jio-to-Jio calls and Jio-to-Non Jio calls for 12,000 minutes. You’ll be getting 100 SMS / day along with that. The benefits include a subscription to all of Jio ‘s apps for free.
If we compare the two plans, the Airtel annual prepaid plan costs a bit more than Jio’s Rs 2399 plan but when it comes to benefits, the Airtel plan takes the cake. It offers unlimited calling whereas the Jio plan offers unlimited Jio-to-Jio voice calling, 12,000 FUP minutes of calling to other networks. The Airtel plan also includes a free subscription to the Zee5 Premium app and Wynk Music while Jio only offers a subscription to Jio apps. Both the plans, however, have a validity of 365 days and offer the same data benefit.
Airtel has another yearly plan that costs Rs 2398. The plan provides 1.5GB data per day, unlimited calling to all networks, and 100SMSes per day. The pack has a validity of 365 days. The plan includes a complimentary subscription to ZEE5, Airtel Xstream Premium, and Wynk Music. The plan will come along with a complimentary anti-virus system for your phone.
