There was a time when Telecom providers used to charge a lot for mere 1 GB – 2 GB of data. For getting 1 GB of data users had to shed somewhere around Rs. 200-300 but, things changed when Jio came into the market. Jio completely changed the scenario when it came up with free data, free calling & free SMS scheme. Now, when Jio’s free plan is no more free, other telecom companies are coming into the battle to attract the users.
The latest entry in the field of free Data is MTNL which is offering 2 GB of 3G data per day for 28 days at Rs. 319. This plan also includes unlimited free calling and SMS. This offer is applicable for all MTNL prepaid users and will remain active for 90 days starting from 1st April 2017. Jio is offering 2 GB/day 4G data at Rs. 499 for 28 days and for availing this, users will have to buy Prime Membership at Rs. 99. So, MTNL is thus offering the same plan at almost half of the price.
It should also be noted that Jio’s 4G Speed is also dropping since the last few months and it seems like it will continue to decrease. It will be a big task for Jio to continue good speed Internet for such a large number of users. In the meantime, other telecom providers are taking advantage of this situation by offering high-speed 4G data at half of the price.
