Until now, Reliance Jio was also offering the 128 kbps of speed and the company recently reduced its speed from 128Kbps to 64Kbps for its prepaid subscribers exceeding the unlimited data limits.

The price vs data war is surely getting intense, and incumbent telecom operators are trying everything to compete with Reliance Jio. The plan also offers 300 local and national SMS, and complimentary subscription to Jio suite of apps. Apart from this, the BSNL signature caller tune will automatically get activated for free post recharge of the pack. Additionally, BSNL is also offering free caller tune by default with this plan. The validity is same for all the effective circles. This plan was aimed at the audience with more calling needs than data consumption requirements. BSNL is offering 1GB of data and unlimited voice calls with its new Rs 118 plan.

Along with the data benefit, BSNL is also offering 1GB data for the validity period, after the given benefit is exhausted the users will be charged at standard rates. The "unlimited" calls are, however, limited to 250 minutes per day and 1,000 minutes per week.

Following the suit, Idea started rolling a similar prepaid plan for Rs. 109. It also offers on free roaming calls but excluding Mumbai and Delhi telecom circles. Furthermore, it offers 100 local and national SMS to be used on a daily basis. Since the launch of Reliance Jio in September 2016, the telecom sector in the country has undergone a major disruption. Identical to the Airtel and some other "unlimited" plans, the voice calls in the pack are limited to 250 minutes per day and 1,000 minutes per week. For someone wanting both voice and data benefits, BSNL has a plan worth Rs 187 that is meant for subscribers looking for an economical monthly mobile plan. There is no further information on full-fledged launch across India.
