This New Plan Is Airtel’s Response to Jio

Airtel Jio

To recall, Jio recently launched two new prepaid plans with a Netflix subscription. The Rs 1099 plan in Jio offers 2GB of daily data along with a Netflix Mobile plan, whereas the Rs 1499 plan offers 3GB data daily and comes with a Netflix Basic subscription. Both plans carry a validity of 84 days.

Hence, the Rs 1499 prepaid plan in Airtel and Jio are exactly the same. Both plans offer 3GB of daily data along with Netflix Basic Plan and carry the same validity of 84 days. Airtel is going head-to-head with Jio for its Netflix bundled plans.

As of now, Airtel and Jio are the only two cellular operators to offer Netflix bundles on prepaid recharges. Earlier, Netflix was only available on postpaid plans.
