Airtel VS Reliance Jio: Which One Is Better?

Without even its new Google Cloud and AWS alliances, Airtel provides long-standing consumer associations and therefore commands premium pricing from companies. However, as the emphasis shifts to the market value and pandemic-scarred small and midsize enterprises (SMBs), the situation changes, particularly with Reliance Jio finding a Microsoft Azure alliance to go after this user base.

Jio Platforms has clearly established a significant footprint in this market. Jio has released over 30 applications for both customers and partner ecosystems since its establishment as an umbrella organization for RIL's multiple digital service verticals.

Bharti Airtel presently has industry-leading utilization statistics, with data usage at 16 GB every person/month and voice consumption at 1,005 minutes per consumer for every month. In comparison, Jio's data and voice consumption metrics are 12 GB and 776 minutes a month, respectively.

As a result, while Jio has excellent plans, there is no question that Airtel has superior coverage and prepaid plans. So, before you choose the best telecom service for you, it’s important to consider your requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to Port from Airtel Postpaid to Airtel Prepaid?

If you're curious if you could somehow port to Airtel prepaid online, the answer would be no. Switching still is a relatively simple process, but it necessitates a trip to the nearest Airtel Shop. The steps are given below.

  • Go to an Airtel Store near you (a list of Airtel stores can be found here)
  • At the shop, fill out the postpaid to prepaid transfer form.
  • Verify any unpaid bills and settle them at the store.
  • The shop representative will make a submission for the change after the dues have been collected and the form has been submitted.
  • You will be sent an OTP to your verified Airtel mobile number; please share it with the store staff.
  • When the OTP verification is complete, you will get a confirmation SMS for the transfer.
  • The transfer takes about two hours to complete.

What will happen to my Hello Tunes as well as other VAS when I switch from Airtel prepaid to postpaid service?

Value-added services, such as Hellotunes, will be rolled over to the latest postpaid plan. Advantages like data rollover, cumulative data, and OTT subscriptions, on the other hand, would be lost.

How much do I pay if I require that my postpaid SIM be transferred to prepaid in the middle of the month?

You will be billed pro-rata for the number of days you have used the service during the current billing period. For the number of days, the sum will depend on your use.

What is Airtel Home?

Airtel Home allows you to add/bundle your separate Airtel accounts such as Postpaid, Cable, and DTH (Airtel Digital TV – Arriving Shortly!). After you've added several accounts to Airtel Home, you can:

  • Avail splendid Airtel Home consumer perks & discounts
  • Get a single bill for all of your accounts.
  • Make a single transaction to all of your accounts.
  • As a valued Airtel Home client, you will be given preference.
