Looks like the telecom operators are gearing up to counter attack Reliance Jio and its attractive services. It's just a day ago that Mukesh Ambani-headed firm announced the Prime Subscription Plan, as an extension to the existing Happy New Year.
Taking a look at the newly announced Reliance Jio Subscription Plan, other telecom giants, like Airtel, Vodafone, Idea are gearing up to match up to the race. However, looks like the smaller telcos are not quite far behind either.
Reports are such that Telenor India is apparently going to merge with Bharti Airtel very soon. Well, ahead of the merger, Telenor announces the cheapest data plan for all times, giving sleepless nights to the major telcos.
Telenor has announced a new data plan that offers unlimited 4G data at just Rs. 57 per month. This, when compared to Reliance Jio's Prime plan seems to be a much cheaper plan.
To recall, Reliance Jio's newly launched Prime subscription plan. To avail this offer, a user is required to recharge with Rs. 99 for a year, on top of that, will have to refill their account with Rs. 303 every month. In this regard, Telenor seems to beat Reliance Jio.
