Airtel upgrades Rs 799, Rs 1,199 postpaid plans to offer more data

Jio launching the Rs 199 postpaid plan has compelled rival telecom operators to up the ante.

Vodafone recently shifted the battleground to the postpaid market in India with a refresh to its Vodafone Red range of unlimited plans.

In its recent round of upgrades, Airtel has updated its Rs 799 postpaid plan to offer 100GB of 3G/ 4G data, while the Rs 1,199 plan now offers subscribers with 120GB of 3G/ 4G data.

This is a substantial upgrade, considering the two Airtel plans previously offered 60GB and 100GB, respectively.

As before, data rollover facility is available.

The Rs 799 Airtel postpaid plan now offers 100GB of data, unlimited local, STD, and roaming calls, one-year subscription to Amazon Prime, Wynk Music subscription, Airtel TV subscription, handset protection, and two add-on connections.

The new Rs 1,199 postpaid plan now offers 120GB of 3G/ 4G data while rest of the benefits remain same.

Late last month, Airtel's Rs 649 postpaid plan was updated to offer up to 90GB of 3G/ 4G mobile data, apart from the usual calling and app benefits.

Much like every new plan in Airtel's refreshed postpaid suite, the Rs 649 offering also has data rollover benefits.
