After the rumble in their plans, Aircel is now aggressively rearranging their plans in the North East. Yesterday, Aircel launched FRC 449 plan in the Jammu and Kashmir region which offers 168 GB data and unlimited calls for 84 days. And today, the telecom operator has launched the same plan in the north east region. Furthermore, they have reduced the price to ₹419 and it will surely attract a lot more customers.
New customers who are willing to join Aircel in the north east can now recharge with FRC 419 plan. The tariff plan provides users 168 GB of 3G data (2GB data per day) and unlimited voice calls for 84 days. At the very first glance, the plans look to be an amazing offer. However, this is not the case as Aircel will only offer the FRC 419 plan to its new customers. The old customers which are already using Aircel’s network will not be able to recharge for the same plan.
The plan from Aircel is offering a lot for the most part. As already mentioned, they provide 2 GB data per day and unlimited calls for ₹419. Whereas, Reliance Jio offers 1 GB data per day and unlimited calls for ₹399. Vodafone India offers the same plan like Jio for ₹445. So, in this case, the telecom operator is offering a lot more data for the same price. However, the plan is only available for the north east and new customers that’s where the problem is. Below is what Nilaj Mahalanavis, Circle Operations Head, North East, Aircel, said.
Aircel has always laid focus on catering to the customer needs offering maximum value in its products and services. The new plans are a special offering of unlimited voice calls and unmatched 3G data which will empower our customers especially students and working professionals to stay connected the whole day and get an uninterrupted access to the internet with the best value for money products and enjoy the unexplored world of videos, music, movies and entertainment.
The telecom market in India is now a tug of war and there’s a huge price drop in every plan from every telecom operator thanks to Reliance Jio. And it looks like Aircel is looking to solidify its ground before the proposed Rcom-Aircel merger. Let us know what you think about the operators’ tariff and their proposed merger with Rcom in the comments below.
