Airtel and Vodafone Idea last week had announced up to 25% hike in their prepaid plans tariffs to improve financials.

Airtel had announced 20-25% tariff hikes for various prepaid offerings, including tariffed voice plans, unlimited voice bundles and data top-ups.

Earlier, while announcing revision in tariffs, Airtel in a statement had said it has always maintained that the mobile Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) needs to be at 200 and ultimately at 300 to provide a reasonable return on capital that allows for a financially healthy business model.

Debt-ridden telecom operator Vodafone Idea has also announced an increase in mobile call and data tariffs across plans by 18-25% for prepaid customers, with effect from 25 November.
