I bought a Jiophone for my grandma just for this. 750 per year is quite reasonableWhile I understand why they need to do this & agree that excess data is not feasible in long-term. I do wish that some low cost options remain for someone who wants to have a second-sim for some basic purposes.
We have a SIM at home for an elderly relative's banking needs (OTPs/Logins alone). Dont even need data/calling. While it is not a question of affordability - we are literally paying that monthly amount just for OTPs - not to mention the banks charging some amount for sending the OTPs.
Others may also have some numbers just as fall-back for incoming only. Having said that, we have been spoiled a bit I guess - as I remember, there was a time when 200 was indeed the minimum needed to remain connected.
Which plan is this? Details?
This is not the case always...... I personally do not like Ambani's and would boycott their any and every product, if I can afford to....... Now Airtel has been saying that for last 20+ years that they are improving the network at the site near my home...... never got indoor coverage in Airtel..... even in data Jio is better..... you will get CA all through Delhi but not on Airtel.They don't need to or improve only by a small amount. There will be people who would leave once these tariffs comes into practice. This would lead to less congestion on the existing infrastructure and thus better service.
Airtel's playing smart... Kick out those low paying customers to Jio or VI. If you want good service, you will have to pay... atleast that is their mantra.
Waiting for reaction from VI, although already know they would follow suit.
