Annual Prepaid Plan Comparison Vodafone Bharti Airtel Reliance Jio. Who Has the Best Plan

In a current Telecom tariff war, all telecom operators are offering Value-added service where you can set up your favorite song to entertain your callers when they call you. You can easily rid from the default “Tring Tring” tune and set the latest music song as per wish. This means that when the caller will call you the caller will hear the song.

The service behind the popular Ring-back Tunes is the Caller ring back tone service (CRBT), first deployed by South Korean Telecom, which made use of the Network Signaling Path to play a musical tone instead of the usual TRING TRING frequency. However, it was in July 2004 that Airtel launched its CRBT service in India under the brand name ‘Hello Tunes’ with A.R. Rahman’s Signature Brand tune as the most popular hello tune on the airtel system in that particular year. Slowly other Telecoms like Reliance GSM and others have also adopted the service which shown a service growth year on vodafone idea Jio
