Airtel 4G 90 Days Unlimited Data (Internet) Plan Launched today (23rd Sept 2016). This step is taken to counter the Popularity of Reliance JIO Free Calling/ Internet till 31st December 2016. This is the Special Pack and it is available in Delhi (NCR) right now. With in 2-3 days the Airtel is planning to introduce 90 days Unlimited Internet in all circle & states. In the Delhi circle, the pack is priced at Rs. 1,495 for existing prepaid users, and Rs. 1,494 for new users on their first recharge.
NOTE: The Unlimited meaning here is (4G speed upto 30 GB only) and then Unlimited with 120 or 200 kbps (2g speed) till 90 days. The Airtel specifies that a fair usage policy applies for the new special 4G data pack. The high-speed data usage cap has been set at 30GB with a validity of 90 days. After users finish 30GB of data, they will get access to low-speed data corresponding to 2G speeds for the remaining period.
Airtel’s plan actually works out to be in line with the promised Rs. 50 per GB rate that Reliance Jio was announced to be – you’re paying Rs. 1,495 for 30GB, which works out to just under Rs. 50 per GB for 90 days, with a usage limit of 30GB, after which you have unlimited 2G usage. On the other hand, with Jio, you can get 20GB of data for Rs. 1,499, which has 28 days validity so not only are you paying more per GB (Rs. 75 per GB) but if your usage isn’t that high, then you’ll end up paying a lot more on a monthly basis.
