Airtel has revised its prepaid plans with a minimum hike of nearly 25 per cent to generate more revenue to roll out 5G services in India. Starting November 26, you will have to pay extras on your prepaid recharges to use Airtel’s services. “Bharti Airtel has always maintained that the mobile Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) needs to be at 200 and ultimately at 300, so as to provide a reasonable return on capital that allows for a financially healthy business model," said Airtel.

The service provider further said, “We also believe that this level of ARPU will enable the substantial investments required in networks and spectrum. Even more important, this will give Airtel the elbow room to roll out 5G in India."

Its immediate competitor, Jio, offers similar features in the prepaid plans but at low rates currently. We will compare the plans of Airtel and Jio to help you save the money.
