Vodafone, Airtel revise Rs 169 plan - Is it better than Reliance Jio?
To continue being in the race, Vodafone and Bharti Airtel have revised their Rs 169 prepaid recharges.
Reliance Jio remains the undefeated contender in the telecom industry for providing its subscribers fast 4G network data, with unlimited talk time and SMSes. To add more to the pile, Reliance Jio also throws in its complimentary subscription to its Jio Apps.
To continue being in the race, Vodafone Idea and Bharti Airtel have revised their Rs 169 prepaid recharges. Earlier, both Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea, in their Rs 169 plans, offered only 1GB data for an entire month and unlimited talk time. While Vodafone Idea and Airtel stole the show with the unlimited calling, they still lacked being beneficiary for their heavy data users.
Hence, Vodafone Idea and Bharti Airtel had to make amendments in their prepaid recharges, with the objective to attract more subscribers and also to retain the ones they already have.

This telecom service provider is offering its customers unlimited calling, 100 SMSes a day and 1GB 4G data with a validity period of 28 days. Along with this, Airtel offers free access to its multimedia streaming services, Airtel TV and Wynk.

The prepaid recharge plans still stand nowhere near Jio plans of Rs 149 giving unlimited talk time, 100 SMSes a day and 1.5 GB 4G data network for a duration of 28 days. In the end, RJio still remains the most affordable telecom service provider, with Airtel and Vodafone following its steps.
