The significant change that has taken place in the tariff plans for Airtel, Vi and Jio after the recent price increase is the changes in streaming benefits of their annual prepaid plans.
Disney + Hotstar’s one year mobile subscription is given under Airtel’s annual prepaid plan at Rs 3359. The same is offered under the Rs 3119 annual prepaid plan by Jio. In the case of Airtel, it provides 30 days of trial access to Amazon Prime also under its plan. On the contrary, Jio offers access to its streaming apps JioTV and JioCinema under the plan. As for Vi, the Disney + Hotstar plan is provided in its 3099 Rs annual prepaid plan along with its own Vi Movies & TV streaming services.
In terms of data, call and SMS benefits, Airtel’s prepaid subscription of Rs 3359 provides 2 GB of daily data, 100 SMS and unlimited calls per day. After data quota, the speed will be reduced to 64 Kbps for the users. Similarly, after SMS limits, Airtel will charge Rs 1 per local SMS and Rs 1.50 per STD text message.
In the case of Jio, the annual prepaid plan of Rs 3119 provides 2 GB of daily data (with an additional 10 GB but total data limited to 740 GB), along with unlimited voice calls and 100 SMS per day. The other benefits include JioSecurity and JioCloud.
We, on the other hand, provide several data benefits among the three. The daily data, call and SMS limits offered under its annual prepaid subscription of Rs 3099 are 1.5 GB daily data, 100 SMS and unlimited calls. In addition, the telecommunications company provides night data without restrictions from kl. 12:00 to 6.00. The user can also transfer unused data for the weekend. 2 GB of backup data is also provided every month. The same free unlimited night data and weekend data rollover benefits are also offered under Vi’s Rs 2899 annual prepaid plan. However, there are no Disney + Hotstar benefits under the said plan.
