Airtel's Rs. 93 pack offers unlimited local, STD, and roaming calls, 100 SMSes per day (local and STD), and a total of 1GB of 3G/ 4G data with a validity of 10 days. With the most recent refreshed plans, Airtel is putting forth a sum of 98GB of 3G/4G data for 28 days to its prepaid supporters. The validity of the plan is 10 days. This plan will offer users 10GB data.

That said, apart from offering 3.5 GB of 3G/4G data per day to its prepaid customers with the ₹799 plan, Airtel is also offering benefits like unlimited local and STD voice calls, free outgoing in national roaming, and, 100 local and STD SMS per day. On the other hand, Jio's Rs 98 prepaid plan offers 2.1GB of 4G data along with free local, STD and roaming calls with a daily data limit of 0.15 GB. Jio's offer also has unlimited local, STD, and roaming calls along with unlimited local and STD SMS.

Airtel has rolled out a new Rs. 93 prepaid recharge pack that takes on the Jio Rs. 98 pack, another retaliation in its ongoing battle with the newcomer competitor, Reliance Jio. At the moment, this tariff plan is available in Mumbai, Chennai, Delhi NCR and Karnataka. With the Airtel TV app, customers get access to various TV channels and movies, something similar to what Reliance Jio users get with apps like JioTV and JioCinema.

TRAI has recently revealed in its report that Reliance Jio has recorded the highest 4G speed by the end of October which made Reliance Jio the fastest mobile data provider in India. Customers recharging the data pack using Airtel Payments Bank will get a cashback of up to Rs 75. Reliance Jio's plan also offers 3GB daily data with a validity of 84 days.

Previously the plan offered 3GB daily data.
