With the introduction of Reliance Jio 4G service, the service provider also came up with the Preview Offer that bundles free calling, 4G data and messages to the users. Now, its no longer called Preview Offer, but Welcome Offer with a cap on the data limit till December 31.
The entry of Reliance Jio in the Indian market has made the other telcos go through a rough patch. Well, we say this as the service providers such as Airtel, BSNL and others have come up with many offers and free data plans to retain their customers from moving to Jio.
The latest news that is creating interest in the 4G space is that Airtel has come up with a special 4G data pack that will offer free 4G data to the users for a period of 90 days. This pack is right now available in Delhi and it will be made available in other circles in the coming days.
Now, take a look at what the new Airtel special data pack has to offer its users and what benefits it will bring over Reliance Jio.
Free 4G data for 90 days
The new Airtel pack will offer the users with 90 days of free 4G data. This special 4G plan is priced at Rs. 1,495 for the existing users and Rs. 1,494 for the new users.
Enjoy 30 GB of 4G data
With the new Airtel special 4G data offer, you can enjoy 30 GB of data for 4G data for free on recharging your number with the specified amount. After crossing the FUP limit of 30 GB, you will get reduced speed. Even the Welcome Offer has this issue. It gives 4 GB of 4G data per day and reduce the speed to 128 kbps after the limit.
Airtel has a longer validity period
The validity period of this special 4G data plan from Airtel is 90 days that is three months. As of now, the Reliance Jio 4G service is available for free for over 90 days, to be precise, its till December 31. After the Welcome Offer, the Jio 4G plans are valid only for 28 days whereas the Airtel plan is valid for a longer period of 90 days.
Reliance Jio offers just 20 GB for the same price
Besides the validity period, the Reliance Jio plans that will be applicable after December 31 show that the Rs. 1,499 plan will offer just 20 GB of 4G data. However, it will offer additional night data and Wi-Fi hotspot data as well.
Which has a better speed?
In our speed test that was conducted before the commercial launch of the Reliance Jio service, we experienced superior and unparalleled speed with the Reliance Jio network. But, after the launch of the Jio service, there are complaints regarding the pathetic speed of the Reliance Jio connection.
