Users having its prepaid connections can dial the USSD code is *444*87# from their mobile phones, to activate the Rs 87 SuperWeek plan. Now, there are slew of plans from companies other than Reliance Jio that also offer 1GB data (or even more in some cases) per day.

Reliance Jio has just about started to test its new feature phone; incumbent operators in the telecom industry are still adjusting to the major ripples created by Jio services, and it should get ready for yet another storm. Beyond that users will be charged 10 paisa/min for Airtel to Airtel and 30 paisa for other networks.

Rs 40 plan will get you Rs 35 worth of talk time with unlimited validity.

This plan takes on the Rs. 349 Jio pack that offers bundled data, unlimited calls to all networks, and free SMSes for 56 days.

Under the Airtel CAsh /back offer, Airtel will credit customers 5% cashback (max Rs.25) if they pay via Airtel Payments Bank. At Rs 199 plan users will get 1GB of data and unlimited local calls for a period of 29 days.

The Rs 349 pack comes with 28 GB data valid for 28 days.

In telecom market highly competitive Reliance Jio, now Vodafone is offering up to 250MBs or megabytes of for its prepaid customers at Rs 87 and also offers the other benefits. Now Airtel has launched the revised new plan. According to Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) data, Jio has been recorded as the fastest 4G data speed provider in India in the month of July. But unlike Jio, Airtel's Rs 399 plan is being offered only to select prepaid customers. However, now users had to comply with FUP (Fair Usage Policy) of 1GB data per day.

Only 1% of Indians spent more than Rs 800 on monthly tariff plans. The validity of this pack is 7 days, and there are no bundled calls. It also has the biggest 4G network coverage in the country.

Believe it or not, India is now the world's largest country when it comes to data consumption.
