Bharti Airtel to offer three months of unlimited data for $22

(Reuters) - Ltd, India's biggest mobile phone carrier, will offer its prepaid customers three months of unlimited data for 1,494 rupees ($22), escalating a price war after the entry of a new player.

The company will offer up to 30 gigabytes of data at speeds and then slower speeds thereafter.

Carriers such as and Vodafone are reducing prices after Reliance Jio Infocomm, a telecoms venture backed by India's richest man Mukesh Ambani, launched commercial operations this month, offering all services until the end of the year.

Currently, one gigabyte of data valid for about a month is priced at about 250 rupees or more. Most Indian cellphone users are prepaid, or without a monthly contract with their carrier.
