Airtel takes on Vodafone: Launches new prepaid plan to offer Unlimited Calling at just Rs. 169

Recently Vodafone came up with a new prepaid plan which offered unlimited calling and other benefits for 28 days at the price of Rs.169. Airtel, proving that it isn’t going to hang back, has also launched a new plan with the similar benefits at the same price i.e. Rs.169. The newly introduced plan offers unlimited calling, and free 100 local and national SMS daily.

With this plan, the subscriber also gets 1GB 2G/3G/4G data daily for the validity of 28 days. This means, for the entire period of validity the plan grants a total of up to 28GB data.

Vodafone’s Rs 169 prepaid plan also offers unlimited local and national calling, unlimited national roaming, 100 daily SMS, and 1GB daily high-speed 3G/4G data for 28 days. But Airtel’s plan gives its subscribers unlimited calling without any FUP while Vodafone’s plan has some limitations. They are:

  1. The subscribers can still continue to use high-speed internet surfing at 3G/4G speeds after the daily limit is hit but, they will be charged 50 paise per MB.
  2. For calling: The subscribers can only make 250 calls daily and 1,000 calls on a weekly basis. They will either be charged 1.2 paise per second or Re 1 per minute once the calling limit is hit depending on the circle and user segmentation.
