New Delhi: The introduction of Mukesh Ambani's Reliance Jio has sent telecom firms into a data war zone but consumers are not complaining.
Ever since the news of Reliance Jio offering unlimted 4G LTE data for 3 months on trial basis, telecom firms such as Airtel, Vodafone and Idea Cellular have cut their 3G/4G data rates by up to 80 percent.
While these major telecom players including BSNL had cut their data rates by up to 67 percent in the past, Airtel went further and cut their rates by up to 80 percent.
So, after these major cuts in 3G/4G data rates, here are the best deals offer by Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel, Vodafone, BSNL and Reliance Communication.
The 4G Preview Offer gives access to free 4G internet, VoLTE voice-calling, video-calling and SMS for 90 days. However, the real issue here is getting the SIM for which people have been reportedly lining up outside authorised stores from 2 am daily.
1GB of 3G/4G at Rs 51 for 12 months. However, this is applicable only after consumers recharge with Rs 1,498 against which they will get 1GB of 4G or 3G mobile internet usage valid for 28 days. And once this 1GB data is over, the customers can get 1GB 3G/4G recharges for just Rs 51 over a period of 12 months with no limit on the number of recharges during the period.
