While most prepaid users opt for the 84 days plan from telcos, there are some users who prefer to do a single recharge for the whole year. If you are looking at long term prepaid plans, Jio and Airtel have announced new annual plans with improved benefits.

An earlier comparison of annual plans offered by the three telcos had revealed that Airtel and Vodafone Idea’s plans offered more benefits compared to Reliance Jio’s annual plan. However, things have changed now with the new ₹2,399 plan from the telco.
