The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) has passed the judgement in favor of Airtel and RJio that the two telcos are not offering predatory pricing, a complaint made by Vi in May 2023. The regulator has said, the detailed scrutiny reveals that their tariffs are not below cost.
The complainant said, the two telcos are offering unlimited data plans as part of their 5G services. Further, it alleged that 5G services were being offered at 4G rates, and this amounted to predatory pricing.
The regulator has asked RJio and Airtel to now clearly state the terms and conditions of their unlimited 5G data offerings to customers. Both the telcos have complied and updated their terms and conditions for the tariff plans.
To put it in perspective, Vodafone Idea itself has been offering unlimited 4G data.
