The decision, the company said, was for a “financially healthy business model”. The company hiked prepaid tariffs by 20-25 per cent and top-up data plans by 20-21 per cent. The company indicated that a tariff hike was taken to “provide a reasonable return on capital that allows for a financially healthy business model and that this level of Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) will enable the substantial investments required in networks and spectrum, including 5G.”
