Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Jio offers a variety of recharge options to its prepaid customers. The lowest recharge is priced at Rs 19 whereas the highest recharge is as high as Rs 9,999.
The prepaid customers will get several options to pick the best one depending upon their needs. The validity of these plans will vary from 1 day to 390 days (as per the plan).
The new entrant will offer unlimited voice, data and SMS to its customers in all its plans except two plans, i.e. Rs 19 and Rs 49. The company will give 200 MB and 600 MB of data, respectively to its customers opting for these two plans.
To compete with Jio, Airtel has come up with its own 4G smartphone which would arrive in the first week of October.
Earlier this year, CEO of Airtel Gopal Vittal said, "I want to clarify the difference between bundling versus discounting and subsidising. We do not brand handsets on our own. We do not subsidise. We do not manage the inventories. We work with different device players to bundle’’.
