Airtel Price hike and learn about queuing

We have seen how telecom giants have captured the Indian market leaving consumers with fewer options. Bharti Airtel and Jio are classy cases of such settings.

Following Reliance Jio’s footsteps, Bharti Airtel will increase tariffs on prepaid and postpaid plans starting July 3.

Importantly, while rates have increased across the board, providers have kept benefits such as call minutes and data allocations unchanged.

The upcoming price hike, which ranges from 10-21 percent across various plans, is part of Bharti Airtel’s strategy to ensure financial health and sustainability.

The company emphasizes that the average revenue per user (ARPU) needs to exceed Rs 300 to support the substantial investments required in network technology and spectrum, while also offering a modest return on capital.

Additionally, Airtel has revised its entry-level criteria for free unlimited 5G access. Previously, users could access 5G on more affordable plans, but now only plans to offer 2GB of data per day or more will include this benefit

Bharti Airtel revised prepaid plan tariffs

Airtel significantly increased rates across various prepaid packages in its revised plans.

Unlimited voice plans, which offer data alongside unlimited calling and SMS benefits, are among those most affected.

 The basic plan, previously priced at Rs 179 for 28 days with 2GB of data, will now cost Rs 199.

he 84-day plan, which provides 6GB of data, has increased from Rs 455 to Rs 509. The annual plan offering 24GB of data has risen from Rs 1799 to Rs 1999

Airtel increased the price of the 56-day plan with 1.5GB/day from Rs 479 to Rs 579 and the 2GB/day plan for the same duration from Rs 549 to Rs 649

The 84-day plan with 1.5GB/day rose from Rs 719 to Rs 859, and the 2GB/day plan now costs Rs 979, up from Rs 839.

The annual plan offering 2GB/day experienced a significant jump from Rs 2999 to Rs 3599.

Note: All plans that provide 2GB of data per day or more will include unlimited 5G data.
