Aircel, better known for its cheap data packs in India have added a few more plans to its 2G and 3G business. Customers of this operator will now be able to enable 100 MB HSPA and GPRS plan on a recharge of Rs 9. This pack has a single day validity. Users will also be allowed to purchase Rs 79 1GB pack and Rs 249 3GB plans that will remain activated on the customer’s mobile device for 10 and 30 days respectively. Aircel is now offering 7.5 GB of unlimited HSPA data for around 403 Rs.
Aircel’s new plans may be cheaper but they’re not very attractive. Its competitor, Reliance GSM offers 1GB GPRS data for the same amount. You can also enjoy its free basic services without paying a penny or subscribing to any special pack.
BSNL, the company which is struggling to retain customers have decided to reduce the validity on some of its STV. The 17 Rupees special tariff voucher which was earlier valid of 48 hours will now have a day’s validity. The 68 Rs 1024 MB plan will be available for just 3 days. Along with Aircel, BSNL has also come up with a couple of new packs.
iDEA cellular users in a few circles (including PN, AP, HP) will now enjoy double data on magic packs from today onward. Well, if you’re not aware, when the user recharges for this pack (that costs within 250 to 300), he’ll get 1 to 10GB of data. For more details, kindly contact Idea customer center.
Reliance Industries is all set to launch its Jio mobile services this month and it looks like some telecom companies have already started to feel the heat. As you can see above, Aircel, BSNL, and Idea have started offering cheaper data plans all of the sudden. Some other operators are expected to follow the suite.
Well, If you’re eagerly waiting for the official launch of Reliance Jio, you’ll be happy to learn that RIL has started importing a lot of SIM cards and 4G enabled phones in the country. RJio SIMs are priced within 19 to 21 Rupees per unit.
