Will Vi, Jio Increase Their Cost?

Airtel is one of the leading telcos in India and is among the top three telecom operators as well. The others that occupy a position in this list are Reliance Jio and Vodafone Idea aka Vi. Given that Airtel just hiked the cost of its prepaid plans, thereby making them relatively more expensive without increasing the benefits offered to the subscribers, we can expect Vi and Reliance Jio to also follow suit.

Vodafone Idea was already eying to increase the ARPU and it might increase the cost of its plans to make these on par with Airtel. However, there is no clarity on Reliance Jio as the company is more focused on increasing its subscriber base and market share.
