Call it Reliance Jio effect or change of time, Airtel has further slashed prices of their 4G and 3G data upto Rs. 51 per GB under special tariff packs.
With these new tariff packs, 1GB of data on Airtel will cost Rs. 51, down from Rs. 259. Terms and conditions include signing up for a 12-month package with a Rs. 1,498 fee upfront, which includes 1GB of initial data. It is applicable for unlimited number of data recharges in the given period. The offer is available only to prepaid users, and existing customers can switch to it by performing a Rs. 1,498 recharge.
Another package with Rs. 748 payment upfront, will reduce the data cost to Rs. 99 per GB for six months. Again they can do any number of recharges and it will cost Rs. 99 per mb.
Although voice calling price is world's lowest in India but data is still on higher side, and hopefully with the price war started because of Reliance Jio, we may see more correction in prices of data in India.
