It also has one more benefit -- saving users from the potential tariff hikes in the future. Last year the telcos had proposed to the government to set a minimum floor price for data and calls, according to a PTI report. If the floor price, which is the fixed minimum rate, demanded by telecom operators is given way, the mobile data prices could rise 5-10 times from the current price, reports had speculated. Last year, Airtel Founder and Chairman Sunil Bharti Mittal had also hinted at tariff hikes saying that subscribers should be prepared to pay a lot more.
