Reliance Jio may be the youngest telecom operator in India but the company's generous data plans and discounts on its products and services have gained a massive following in just a year. Not to be outdone, Bharti Airtel, the country's largest telecom company by subscriber base, has introduced its own set of attractive data and calling plans to retain market share. Airtel has announced a new set of combo recharges for its prepaid customers which offer 4G data and unlimited calling.
