Over the past year, while incumbents started offering data and calls bundled in relatively affordable plans, Jio has steadily been making its plans more in line with industry requirements.

Bharti Airtel has announced a new plan for its prepaid users in India.

Under this new plan Airtel is providing unlimited calling along with 2GB of 4G data for 28 days at Rs 144, however, for others users, the telco is offering 1GB of data for 28 days. The term no FUP could be understood as the users can consume their data either at one go or they can spend it bit by bit till 28 days after recharge. Additionally, unlike Reliance Jio Rs 149 plan, there is no unlimited SMS. Post exhausting the daily FUP limits, customer can continue enjoying free unlimited internet at lower speed of 64 Kbps.Reliance Jio's Rs 149 recharge plan is valid only for prepaid user and comes bundled with free unlimited voice calls, roaming, SMS and Jio apps subscription.

The telco is allowing its customers to back their contacts, messages, images, videos, audios and other files and this service from Aircel is free of cost and users are able to backup up to 2GB storage space. This is a limited period offer, though the brand has not revealed when it will end it. To avail the offer, the prepaid users need to purchase the Rs. 349 plan only from the MyAirtel app. The cashback will be automatically applied while buying a recharge and it will be restricted to once in a month.
