Airtel has been one of the most renowned telecom companies in India. The revised plans were first spotted by TelecomTalk. So, both Airtel and Vodafone still have some way to go to catch up with Jio despite successfully attracting customers by offering these benefits.

To compete with market leaders like Reliance Jio and Vodafone, Bharti Airtel has announced a cheap package. This plan is priced at Rs. 199 and is valid for 28 days.

Meanwhile, Airtel Rs 509 plan offers benefits similar to Jio Rs 459 and Vodafone Rs 509 plans. Local, STD and roaming SMS and all services are unlimited, as indicated by the Jio site. The company is once again set to create a storm in the telecom industry by giving 2GB data daily to its users for a validity period of 49 days. Every new month, we're seeing the company revising its unlimited combo plans for prepaid users.

We have checked for the revised Rs 349, and Rs 549 plans on eight telecom circles including Andhra Pradesh & Telangana, Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, etc., and the changes are already reflected.

This Airtel pack is available on the official Airtel site and is soon going to be available soon on the Airtel App.

For the unaware, earlier last month, Airtel increased the data offering from 1GB to 1.5GB data per day with the Rs 349 plan, and the Rs 549 plan was revised to offer 2.5GB data per day, up from the 2GB data per day.

Reliance Jio owned by one of the richest people of the world Mukesh Ambani created a buzz in the highly crowded telecom sector.

Rs 349 plan of Vodafone - which provides 1.5GB per day at 4G/3G data network with a validity of 28 days.It only gives unlimited local and STD calls within India (up to 250 minutes per day and 1000 minutes per week).

The company is offering between 1.5 GB to 3.5 GB in its four different prepaid packs. 1GB data is also available at Rs. 49 that is available on the Airtel application.

So overall, under the Rs 349 plan - now - Airtel is offering 56GB data per month, unlimited calls and SMS benefits to another network. A total of 100 local and STD SMS per day are also available on all handsets.
