Since when Reliance Jio announced the ‘preview offer’ where user gets unlimited 4G for 90 days, many telecom companies like Airtel, Aircel have been frightened. To keep a hold on their old customers they are now smashing the data plan charges like a crazy. Just before few days, Aircel announced a new data pack for Karnataka users which gives them 5GB 3G at just 298 Rs recharge. You can read more information about this offer here.
Past week, to give a tough competition to Reliance jio net packs, Airtel launched another new offer which lets you get 1 GB 3G data on recharging with just 51 Rs. But there’s a little twist!
Airtel Mega Saver Recharge Pack Details
There are 2 plans which are as follows:
|747 Rs||3 GB Data instantly with 28 days validity||For next 6 months, you get 1] 1GB data for just 97 Rs/month OR 2] Or 2.5 GB for 252 Rs/month|
|1498 Rs||6 GB Data instantly which is valid for 28 days||For next 12 months, you get 1] 1GB 3G/4G data at 53 Rs/month 2] 2GB @ 97 Rs/month OR 2] 5GB 3G/4G at 252 Rs/month|
Both of the mega saver pack looks good as you get 1GB data at as low as 51 Rs. For heavy data users, I will recommend 2nd plan which gives you 5GB data per month by spending only 258 Rs per month.

Is Airtel mega saver plan applicable for postpaid connection?
Unfortunately, this Airtel 1498 Rs plan is valid only for prepaid users. So, you will have to wait until Airtel updates its pack for postpaid subscribers.
Take this plan only if you are heavy internet user or use YouTube/video streaming sites aggressively. Else, better is to go with Reliance Jio (at least till 31st Dec) 🙂
