India’s telecom tariff war does not seem to be ending soon. In fact, the focus seems to have shifted from prepaid users to postpaid users. Due to intense rivalry and declining average revenue per user, all major telecom service providers have shifted their focus to postpaid subscribers. Consumers want more bang for their bucks and telecom operators are leaving no stone unturned to sweeten the deal. If you are a postpaid subscriber then here is a look at how plans from leading telecom players compare under Rs 1,000.

Reliance Jio is not really the operator pushing all its resources towards the postpaid plans. It offers only one plan priced at Rs 199 while most other players offer postpaid plans that are priced under Rs 399. With Jio’s Rs 199 postpaid plan, customers get 25GB free data and after you complete the free data, the company charges Rs 20 per GB of data. The plan also comes bundled with free voice calling and unlimited SMS of 100 per day. There is also free subscription to Jio apps and customers need to pay one-time fee of Rs 99 for Prime membership.

Airtel’s postpaid plan starts at Rs 399 and with this plan, customers get 40GB of data during the billing cycle. There is also data rollover option of up to 200GB to next billing cycle. While Airtel also offers free voice calling and 100 SMS per day, the real deal is free annual subscription of Amazon Prime. Airtel users can also watch video on demand from platforms like Zee5 on Airtel TV app.

Vodafone and Idea offer similar postpaid plans priced at Rs 399 with 40GB data per billing cycle and option for rollover up to 200GB. Vodafone users also get free Amazon Prime subscription and Vodafone Play access. Idea users miss out on Amazon Prime membership for free but do get access to video on demand service via Idea Movies and TV app and music streaming via Idea Music app.

Bharti Airtel vs Reliance Jio vs Vodafone vs Idea: Best postpaid plan under Rs 500

This is the space where every telecom player is trying to drive customers away from their rivals. While Jio is not a competition here, Airtel, Vodafone and Idea battle it out against each other. Vodafone and Idea offer Rs 499 postpaid plan with 75GB of data and rollover up to 200GB. This plan also comes bundled with Amazon Prime subscription for Vodafone users while there is also an additional free device protection included with this plan.

When it comes to Airtel, customers get 75GB data with rollover limited to 200GB and free subscription to Amazon Prime for a year. Airtel makes a deal more interesting by throwing in Rs 1,500 Netflix coupon which can be used to get Netflix’s cheapest plan priced at Rs 500 for three months. There is also free handset protection included with this plan.

While the Rs 399 and Rs 499 postpaid plans would suffice for most consumers, the telecom players also offer high price tier where consumers get plans priced at up to Rs 999. Vodafone and Idea have a Rs 999 plan that offers 100GB of data and data rollover up to 200GB. This plan also comes with free 50 minutes of ISD calls and free two month subscription to Netflix.
