Days after Reliance Jio extended its free services, mobile operator Bhartitoday came out with two prepaid offerings, including a Rs 145 pack, that will offer free unlimited local/STD calls along with 4G data.
While Airtel’s Rs 145 pack offers 300 MB 4G data along with free unlimited Airtel-to-Airtel local/STD calls, its Rs 345 pack offers unlimited free local/STD calls to any network in India and 1GB 4G data.
Both packs have a validity of 28 days and are available for customers across the country.
Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Jio — which garnered 52 million customer base in the first three months of 4G launch — recently announced extension of free domestic voice calls and data till March 31, 2017. Even after March, the company would offer free calls for life to its 4G customers.
Industry watchers are of the view that extension of free services by Reliance Jio will add to the woes of the industry which is already reeling under Rs 4,25,000-crore debt.
