The unexpected welcome offer of Reliance Jio 4G took the Indian telecom industry by storm, claiming a record 16 million subscribers in just a month. No doubt that this was not a good news for other telecom companies such as Airtel, Vodafone and Idea to name a few.
However, Airtel being India’s leading telecom service provider, never intended to give up. After launching a series of offers, the company has come up with yet another offer to take on Reliance Jio.
The company has offered unlimited voice calling (local and STD) and a huge 18 GB 3G/4G data for reportedly just Rs 2249, with a validity of 28 days.
This offer is only available for just selected customers who will receive an SMS from the company. But other Airtel pre-paid users can also avail the offer in three simple ways-
- Go to Airtel Store, pay the said amount and get it activated.
- Users can use the USSD code too. Dial 121*1# and follow the given instructions.
- Launch the MyAirtel App, go to ‘Special Offer’ section, select the Rs 2249 plan and click OK. It will be activated in the next 4 hours.
In such a huge competition amongst telecom companies, it really difficult to predict that who will win the race. Let’s see what other companies might launch to increase the number of subscribers.
