After Jio, Airtel Also Hikes Prices: Check Details Here

Bharti Airtel Limited, India’s second-largest telecom provider by market share, has declared a revision in its mobile tariffs. The new pricing will come into effect from July 3, 2024.

What Happened: On June 28, 2024, Bharti Airtel announced a change in its mobile tariffs, citing the need for the average revenue per user (ARPU) to be above ₹300 for a sustainable business model for telecom firms in the country.

The telecom major stated that the revised tariffs would aid in substantial investments required in network technology and spectrum while providing a modest return on capital. The price hike for entry-level plans is less than 70 paise per day, aiming to minimise the impact on budget-conscious consumers, the company added in a press release.

The average hike on plans is around 16%.

Why It Matters: This announcement comes in the wake of a similar move by Reliance Jio Infocomm, a subsidiary of Reliance Industries, which revealed new unlimited plans on June 27, 2024. The new plans, set to be available from July 3, 2024, promise to provide truly unlimited 5G data across India on its premium plans.

The price hike was effected across all the plans that Jio offers, with an average increase of around 20%.
