      The thing is JIO gives same plans to all its customers. Airtel does not. Airtel will only give these aggressive plans to people who it thinks don't use Airtel much.

          1. Let us not forget that till the entry of Reliance Jio in the telecom services market three companies, Airtel, Vodafone Idea, were almost dictating terms to customers. There were exclusive internet packages without voice call service facility. 2. After entry of R Jio, overall environment has become very compe ive and voice calls became free. Initially, Airtel, Vodafone Idea were uncomfortable with compe ion from R Jio but it appears that slowly the telecom sector is gearing-up to face new challenges. 3. The Union Telecom ministry should look at the new scenario in an unbiased manner and offer concessions to the telecom sector in areas like spectrum pricing. As I see it, tariff wars may soon end as all telecom service providers make efforts to increase their customer base with attractive voice call and data offers. Ultimately after a huge expansion of digital services, I believe it will be a win-win situation for both telecom companies and their customers.
