Airtel offering post FUP data speed of 128Kbps

Airtel subscribers who have opted for unlimited prepaid plans are eligible for the post FUP data speed of 128Kbps, reports TelecomTalk. Earlier, if the data limit was reached, the subscriber either had to wait for the clock to strike 12 AM or buy a small recharge plan.

The state-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) is leaving no stone unturned in trying to stay afloat in the telecom market which has been disrupted by Mukesh Ambani led Reliance Jio with its heavy data, unlimited voice calls and many other freebies. Additionally, this plan offers free caller tunes but there is no mobile data benefit with this plan.

That means an Airtel subscriber recharging with a pack of Rs 199 and consuming 1.4 GBs of high speed mobile data in a day during the validity period will be no longer charged for additional data for the remaining period of the day.

Airtel Rs 249 plan: Airtel offers unlimited voice calls, free-roaming outgoing and incoming, 100 local/national SMS a day and 2GB data per day for 28 days.

OnePlus 6 to launch in India today
OnePlus is also expected to launch the Infinity War Edition OnePlus 6 , which will be available in limited quantities. The sale will be at Amazon India website , OnePlus India website, and OnePlus offline stores in select cities.

However, BSNL recently introduced another recharge pack of Rs 429 which is comparatively better than what RJio is offering.

In a bid to take on the cutthroat competition from Jio, Idea, and Airtel had announced their recharge plans with similar offers and prices alike. And of course, once the limits are exhausted, the customers will be charged at the standard rates (10 paise per minute).

With no restriction, and no rules, BSNL landline users can now call local or STD numbers, any time of the day, 7-days a week for free. Furthermore, it offers 100 local and national SMS to be used on a daily basis. But the bigger question is how well BSNL's new plan competes against the offers from Reliance Jio and Airtel. But as reported few days back, BSNL is losing their market share at a fast speed, and previous year along around 1.5 lakh landline users ditched BSNL. With a validity of 28 days, the new BSNL Rs 118 plan is available in telecom circles including Kolkata, Tamil Nadu, Chennai for prepaid subscribers. However, the new broadband plan benefits have only been launched in the Kerala circle for now.

Reliance Jio already offers users Rs 98 prepaid plan which gives unlimited local and STD calls and national roaming for free along with 2GB data for 28 days; users also get 300 free SMS free of cost.
