Latest in the list of unlimited plans are from Airtel. The telecom operator will be making three new truly unlimited prepaid plans available for all customers from December 7. The cheapest Airtel truly unlimited prepaid plan starts from Rs 219. It offers 28 days of validity with 1GB/per day along with 100 SMS per day and unlimited calling.
The second Airtel truly unlimited prepaid plan is for Rs 399 which offers 56 days of validity. It also gets 1.5GB/per day along with 100 SMS per day and unlimited calling to any network across India. The last plan is for Rs 449, which also offers 56 days validity but with 2GB/per day data, 90 SMS per day and unlimited calling.
On the other hand, Reliance Jio’s All-In-One prepaid plans do not offer unlimited calling to any network, instead consumers only get up to 3,000 minutes of (off-net) calling, which also depends on the recharge value.
