- Jio offers four plans with 1GB data per day
- Airtel and Vodafone provide 1.5GB data every day at less than Rs. 350
- BSNL and Jio offer plans with validities of more than 3 months
Jio has upped the ante for rival telecom operators such as Airtel and Vodafone with the launch of its new ‘triple cashback’ offer that provides benefits worth up to Rs. 2,599. The new Jio offer will certainly lure some customers to the network, but there are enough good plans that the likes of Airtel, Vodafone, Idea and BSNL offer to retain their subscribers. Of course, the most popular plans since Reliance Jio entered the market are the ones with 1GB data per day allowance. In fact, the first such plan – the Rs. 303 pack by the Mukesh Ambani-backed operator – led to the launch of many such recharge packs by rival telcos. However, with so much action in the telecom sector nowadays, plans come and go rather fast. So if you are looking to buy a plan with 1GB data per day, here’s a list of such plans by the five major telcos.
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.
Vodafone 1GB data per day plans
Like Airtel, Vodafone also has two plans with 1GB data per day, priced at Rs. 348 and Rs. 392. Both plans have 28-day validity and come with 1GB per day and unlimited local and STD calls, but with the Rs. 392 Vodafone plan you will also get free outgoing calls on roaming, which will come in handy if you travel frequently. Notably, the Rs. 348 plan will provide 1.5GB per day in all circles except Delhi-NCR.
BSNL 1GB data per day plan
BSNL has the Rs. 429 plan to combat the Jio threat, offering 90GB of bundled data with the plan. The prepaid recharge pack has validity of 90 days, and the data is doled out in tranches of 1GB daily. You will also get unlimited calls to any network with the plan.
Idea 1GB data per day plan
The Rs. 357 Idea plan provides customers 1GB per day, unlimited calls and 100 SMSes per day, with validity of 28 days. Similarly, there’s the Rs. 498 plan that comes with the same benefits as the Rs. 357 plan but validity of 70 days.
