Under this new plan, Airtel is offering its prepaid customers unlimited local, STD and national roaming voice calling to any network across the country, 1.5GB data per day and 90 SMS per day for a period of 70 days.
If we talk about Airtel Rs 399 prepaid plan, the plan comes with a validity of 70 days and 84 days. For some users, Rs 399 plan comes with 84 days validity while for some users, it’s just 70 days. So for the 70-day validity users, the Rs 398 recharge is a better option to choose from. The Rs Airtel Rs 399 offers unlimited voice calls, 1.4GB of daily data and 100 SMS per day. The Rs 398 plan, on the other hand, is offering 1.5GB data per days. The Rs 398 plan is a better option as it comes with more data benefit.
On the other hand, Reliance Jio Rs 398 plan offers 2GB data per day, unlimited voice calls without any capping and 100 SMS per day for 70 days. There is a Rs 349 prepaid plan also which offers 1.5GB data per day along with unlimited voice and text messages and it comes with a validity of 70 days. Since Reliance Jio is offering more data benefit, it obviously has an upper hand than Airtel.
