New plans have been revealed by Airtel over the weekend and the updated pre-paid tariff plans are now in place. Vodafone Idea was followed by Bharti Airtel which also announced on Sunday its updated prepaid plans. The only other telco that has an important market share is Jio, and although the RIL company has also reported an increase, the new tariffs have not been explained. As we have said, the revised Airtel prepayment plans are now in place on Tuesday, 3 December 2019. The rates of Airtel’s new scheme begin from Rs 19 to Rs. 2,398. We offer benefits including universal support for voice calling, bundled SMS messages and allocation of space. Reliance Jio has confirmed that it will lift the rate by up to 40% by launching’ all-in-one’ prepaid packages, close to Airtel and Vodafone Idea.
Airtel claimed in its press release that the revised prepayments entail tariff changes of 50 passes per day to Rs. 2.85 per day. The update doesn’t change the benefits of the operator headquartered in New Delhi for its subscribers noticeably. It ensures that Airtel Thanks rewards and subscription to Wynk Music are still open. The most revised Airtel Prepaid plans include antivirus protection and protective devices.
