“Bharti Airtel has always maintained that the mobile Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) needs to be at Rs 200 and ultimately at Rs 300, so as to provide a reasonable return on capital that allows for a financially healthy business model. We also believe that this level of ARPU will enable the substantial investments required in networks and spectrum. Even more important, this will give Airtel the elbow room to roll out 5G in India”, the company said.

With this, the existing tariff of Rs 79 with a validity period of 28 days will be increased to Rs 99 with 50% more talk time i.e. Rs 99, whereas the existing tariff of Rs 149 with a validity period of 28 days will be increased to Rs 179 keeping all the benefits the same.
