airtel announces hike in tariff for prepaid offerings by 2025
There has been a hike of around 25 per cent in the entry-level voice plan, while the increase is around 20 per cent in most cases for the unlimited voice bundle.
The company said it has always ensured that the average revenue per user (ARPU) for mobiles should be Rs 200 and eventually Rs 300, to get a fair return on capital.
“We also believe that this level of ARPU will enable substantial investment in network and spectrum as required,” Airtel said in a statement. More importantly, it will help Airtel to roll out 5G in India.
The new tariffs will be applicable from 26 November 2021. The tariff of the initial voice plan will now be Rs 99 instead of the current Rs 79 with a validity of 28 days. This includes benefits like 50 percent more talk time (Rs 99), 200 MB data and one paisa per second voice tariff.
