Jio cashback offer announced last week is clearly an exercise to garner new users for the telecom operator, at the expense of Airtel, Vodafone, Idea and BSNL subscriber base. The Jio offer gives more wallet cashback to new users compared to its existing subscribers. However, getting users to switch networks – especially after the recent tariff hike – may not be as easy as the company would like it to be as Airtel, Vodafone, Idea and BSNL too launched competitive plans with 1GB data per data and free local and STD calls in response to free services launched by the Mukesh Ambani-backed telco. So if you are looking to buy a plan with 1GB data per day, bundled calls and other freebies, here’s a list of such plans by Jio, Airtel, Vodafone, BSNL, and Idea.
Jio 1GB data per day plans
Jio has the widest range of plans with 1GB data per day, with varying validities of course. Since the Diwali tariff revision, the Rs. 309 plan comes with 1GB data per day for 49 days, while the Rs. 399 plan offers the same daily data allowance for 70 days. Similarly, you will get 84GB data at 1GB per day for 84 days with the Rs. 459 plan, and 1GB daily for 91 days for Rs. 499. All these Jio plans come with free calls and 3,000 SMSes and access to Jio apps.
Airtel 1GB data per day plans
Airtel offers two plans with 1GB data per day, keeping its range of plans a little more streamlined. The Rs. 399 plan provides 1GB daily data allocation and bundled local and STD calls, with validity of 70 days. On the other hand, you will get 1GB data per day for 70 days, bundled local and STD calls, free outgoing calls on roaming and 100 SMSes per day at Rs. 448. If you want a little more daily data and are willing to settle for less validity, you can get 1.5GB data per day for 28 days with the Rs. 349 plan. The bundled calls are limited to 250 minutes per day and 1,000 minutes a week for all plans.
