Bharti Airtel (Airtel) on Monday raised its minimum tariff plan to 99 yen for prepaid users, from 79 yen earlier.
The new tariffs will take effect on November 26, the company said in a statement.
For unlimited plans, the company has set the minimum plan at 179 (from 149) for 28 days during which the customer will get unlimited calls, 100 texts / day and 2 GB of data.
In the maximum category, he set the price at 2,999 (against 2,498 previously) with a validity of 365 days, unlimited calls, 100 SMS / day and 2 GB / day of data.
The phone company has always maintained that the average mobile revenue per user (ARPU) should be 200 yen and ultimately 300 yen, in order to provide a “reasonable return on capital” that enables a financially healthy business model.
“We also believe that this level of ARPU will allow the required substantial investments in networks and spectrum. More importantly, it will give Airtel leeway to deploy 5G in India, ”Airtel said.
“Therefore, as a first step, we are taking the initiative to rebalance our tariffs during the month of November,” Airtel added.
