Bharti Airtel has revised its cheapest bundled pack of Rs 149. The plan now offers unlimited calling.
Earlier, the same pack used to offer unlimited Airtel to Airtel calls, but now the company has revised the calling benefits. Customers will now get unlimited calling on both local and STD on any network. Furthermore, users will also get free outgoing roaming calls.
However, the pack still offers 1GB of 3G/4G data and it comes with a validity of 28 days. Telecom Talks notes that the pack is not available for all and it is meant for certain circles only.
With this, Airtel is once again challenging Reliance Jio. The company revised its existing plans as a part of its ‘Happy New Year’ offer. Reliance Jio has slashed the price of Rs 199 and it is now available at a price of Rs 149.
