Airtel will give another blow to the users, soon the price of the recharge plan will go up

New Delhi: In December last year, Airtel, Jio and Vodafone Idea’s prepaid plans were up 25 per cent. Now Airtel Has said that the company will make its plans more expensive in 2022 as well. Airtel is trying to raise the average revenue per user (ARPU) to Rs 200. In December last year, Airtel also started raising rates. Airtel’s ARPU was Rs 163 in October-December 2021, down one per cent year-on-year. Gopal Vitthal, MD & CEO, Bharti Airtel said, “We expect a hike in 2022. It is unlikely to happen in the next 3-4 months and we will not look back to lead in recent times. “We expect our APRU to reach Rs 200 soon and Rs 300 in the next few years,” he said.

Bharti Airtel’s consolidated revenue grew 12.6 per cent to Rs 29,897 crore in the December 2020 quarter from Rs 26,518 crore
Data usage on Airtel’s network grew by 11.7 per cent. Since then, data usage has averaged 18.28 GB per user per month, up from 16.37 GB a year ago. It is to be noted here that the last prepaid price hike by telecom companies was in December 2021. It’s been a long time since the price hike and now companies are talking about a second round of price hikes. Users, however, will be hit hard and will have to pay extra for recharging.

Currently, Airtel’s Rs 299 plan offers customers 1.5 GB of data per day with 28 days validity. This plan comes with unlimited voice calls and 100 SMS / day as well as mobile edition Amazon Prime Video free trial and some other benefits. Also, Airtel offers a prepaid plan.
