Indian telco, Sun Cellular, to cut Rs.1,800 discount on all plans
Telcos are cutting prices for customers and giving them a discount on new and existing plans, following a wave of consumer protests that have seen the nation’s telcos offering some of the lowest prices in the world.
A Telenor statement on Monday said that Sun Cellular will be offering two discount plans for new customers of its plans and for existing customers of new and old plans.
“These discount plans will be available on both existing customers and new customers.
These plans include two plans, one with unlimited data for one month and one with 1GB of data for two months, priced at Rs. 1,800,” the statement said.
The Telenorg statement also said that the two discount plan options will be launched on September 29.
Telenor, the world’s second-largest telecom operator, is India’s largest telecom operator.
It has been embroiled in a public relations battle with the country’s telecom regulator in the past year.
Last year, Telenom announced a new price plan for its customers, which was to be available through September 30, but the telco announced a similar plan a few days later.
In March, Telcos were forced to slash prices by 25% in line with the protests that took place across the country, with some customers receiving a 40% discount.
On March 6, Telcom said that it would lower the prices of all its plans by 25%, but the telecom regulator later told Telenotel that it will cut prices by 50% in a similar manner, according to the NDTV news channel.
