Price war between Jio, Airtel and Vodafone
When it comes to the comparison, Jio seems to be in the top always. This time the other two leading companies are not so far. They come up with a little tweaked plan similar to Jio.
- Firstly considering the price war, Jio is no doubt leading the race. Reliance is offering only Rs. 1500/- as down payment which will be back after 36 months on returning back the handset. Technically the user will get the phone for free. On the other Airtel is offering the same at Rs. 1399/- and Vodafone is offering the same at Rs. 999/-.
- On the other Jio users will get the cash back only if the users will return the model in good condition after 3 years unlike Airtel or Vodafone. That means for other two users they can use the phone for lifetime at just Rs. 1399/- and Rs. 999/-.
- As far as the recharge amount is concerned, Airtel has offered that the user has to recharge the phone every month with minimum of Rs. 169/- to continue the service. Also the service provider has stated that in first 18 months the users will have to recharge total of Rs. 3000/- to get Rs. 500/- and then in next 18 months another Rs. 3000/- to get rest Rs. 1000/-.
- On the contrary, Vodafone is offering Rs. 150/- recharge per month with no minimum charges to get back the money. Jio connection users need to pay Rs. 153/- per month to continue their connection.
- As a whole for 3 years users in Jio will have to spend total of Rs. 7008/- in 36 months. After tenure of 3 years users will get back Rs. 1500/- after returning back the handset. Airtel users, on the other will have to spend Rs. 8899/- throughout these 36 months and will get back Rs. 1500/- without returning back the phone.
- Finally for Vodafone users the amount they will have to spend is Rs. 8299/- and will get cash back of Rs. 1900/- without returning back anything. Hence by comparing 3 service providers, the actual money spend on different companies will be:
Jio: Rs. 5508/-
Airtel: Rs. 7399/-
Vodafone: Rs. 6399/-.
At the face of it, Jio’s plan looks cheaper among all. However the handset will remain with the users of other two so, in this case Vodafone looks much affordable.
All the three leading service providers are coming with three moderate manufacturing companies such as Intex for Reliance, Karbonn for Airtel and Micromax for Vodafone. As of now no such customer feedback has come in front as the said companies are still working on their plans. Providing 4G connections at such lower prices can be a challenge in future.
