Airtel counters Jio Challenge with 1 year free 4G data plan

India —

Airtel today announced a special offer under which it will offer free 4G data for 12 months to customers who switch to Airtel 4G.

The offer is addition to its existing unlimited calling schemes by adding 3GB free 4G data, worth up to Rs 9,000, for non-users of its 4G services.
