In what seems to be the result of anticipated competition in the Indian telecommunication sector, leading operator Airtel has followed Idea Cellular and announced significant cuts in tariffs for its prepaid customer base.

In an announcement, the company announced that it was increasing benefits available on prepaid cards. In addition to slashing tariffs on prepaid cards for data, it was also increasing the data benefits available on prepaid data recharge packs. For instance, the standard Rs 655 3G/4G recharge that offered 3GB data would now offer 5GB instead – an increase by 67 percent.
