The New Delhi-based operator is attempting to counter Reliance Jio's Jio Fiber that offers broadband plans at as low as Rs. 699 per month. The base Jio Fiber plan comes with 100Mbps data speed along with unlimited data with an FUP of 100GB (50GB additional as an introductory offer), voice calling, TV video calling, cloud gaming, home network, and Norton device security for up to five devices.

Airtel earlier had its broadband plans starting at Rs. 699 a month but up to 40Mbps speed and data allowance of 150GB. Moreover, there won't be any changes for the customers using existing Airtel broadband plans.
