Unlike Jio, Airtel doesn’t give users the option to add an extra connection with the Rs 399 postpaid plan. Airtel notes that only postpaid plans of Rs 499 and above are eligible to get ‘Priority Service’, meaning users opting for the Rs 399 plan won’t get any special priority service. As mentioned, Bharti Airtel’s new Rs 399 plan is available across all circles in India for users to choose from.

In comparison, the Rs 399 Jio Postpaid Plus plan brings 75GB 4G high-speed data, unlimited calls and SMSes, and 200GB data rollover. However, Jio has an edge over Airtel, thanks to OTT offerings such as Disney+ Hotstar VIP, Netflix, Prime Videos subscription, and Jio suite of apps. It also offers ‘Family Plan’ at Rs 250 per connection, up to 200GB data rollover benefit per month, Wi-Fi calling, in-flight calling, and international calling starting at Rs 50 paise per min.
