Idea upgrades Rs 309 plan now offers 1.5GB data per day to take on Jio

As we mentioned, the new Airtel Rs 93 prepaid pack is taking on the Jio Rs. 98 pack that offers unlimited local, STD, and roaming calls, 140 SMSes, and a total high speed 4G data of 2.1GB, with a daily limit of 0.15GB. Coming to the upload speed, Vodafone once again ranks first with 1.7Mbps speeds, Idea second with 1.4Mbps and Aircel third with 1.2Mbps. In addition to free local and STD calls, users will get 1GB of 3G/4G data and 100 free SMS per day.

Moreover, Airtel is also offering other prepaid packs to the users that offer similar call and data benefits.

In past few months, Airtel has also followed the path of cheap plan, giving unlimited data and voice calls to lure customers just like RJio. Vodafone also offers a data roll-over feature, of up to 200GB, which will allow you to carry forward the unused data. For the users who want to use daily data, Airtel 93 plan is better than the Reliance Jio 98 plan as there is no limit on daily data usage.
