Airtel Rs. 98 Pack Offers 5GB Data With 28-Day Validity in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana Circle

At Rs. 98, Airtel provides only 1GB of high-speed data in most circles

Highlights
  • The new data allowance is only in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana circle
  • Airtel offers 5GB data at Rs. 398 in other circles
  • Jio only has a booster pack with 6GB data at Rs. 101, but no prepaid pack

Jio continues to offer 4G data at ultra-low cost tariffs to retain more users, and keeps providing freebies such as vouchers and cashbacks. But Airtel doesn't seem to be too far behind either, updating plans to provide customers with similar data and calling benefits to keep them from switching to Jio. Now, Airtel has updated its Rs. 98 recharge pack to provide prepaid customers with as much as 5GB of 4G/ 3G data for 28 days. The Airtel recharge pack is presently available only in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana circle for now, and does not come with any bundled calls or free SMSes. This Airtel recharge pack is clearly aimed at data-heavy prepaid users who consume a lot of Internet content but do not have much need of voice calls.

The Airtel Rs. 98 recharge pack in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana circle provides data at Rs. 20 per GB, which is relatively high considering the operator offers 28GB data at Rs. 149. This translates to roughly Rs. 5 per GB of data. However, compared to other circles, the updated Rs. 98 plan in AP & Telangana is rather generous, as the maximum data allowance at this price is 3GB in Kerala, and 1GB in most other circles. In fact, even in AP and Telangana, the company still has the Rs. 398 pack that offers 5GB of 4G/ 3G data for 28 days.

In some circles, Airtel offers unlimited calls and 1GB data for 28 days at Rs. 93, which is aimed at users seeking more voice calls. However, in AP and Telangana, the validity of the pack is just 10 days.

At Rs. 98, Jio only provides 2GB of bundled data and unlimited calls, 100 SMS messages per day and access to proprietary apps for 28 days. It also has a Rs. 101 booster pack with 6GB of bundled data, but it has no validity on its own - booster packs run only for as long as the ongoing pack remains valid.
