The new pack offers 2 GB of 2G data beyond which internet speed is limited to 40 Kbps.
Airtel has launched (should we say re-launched?) an unlimited internet offer for its 2G prepaid mobile customers across India.
Priced at Rs 149 this pack offers 2 GB of 2G data beyond which the internet speed is limited to 40 Kbps. A similar pack was earlier priced at Rs 99, but was discontinued.
The pack is valid for 30 days and is available across the country for both new and existing subscribers. Pricing, however, will vary slightly due to local taxes etc from circle to circle (state to state).
With improvements in data technology even for 2G services, like the emergence of Edge, data speeds have improved and therefore such a plan is good for protecting unsuspecting customers from bill shock on exceeding the data limit of a plan. (In 2G you usually pay Rs 10 per MB on data used beyond the free usage that a pack offers).
Existing Airtel customers with 4G ready mobile devices can walk into their nearest Airtel Store and switch to a 4G SIM.
Under the revised data benefits, the Rs 655 4G/3G monthly recharge pack will now offer 5 GB data vs 3 GB earlier, an increase of 67%.
The Happy Hours allows Airtel pre-paid customers to get 50% data back into their accounts.
Kakinada is the first town in Andhra Pradesh to get Airtel's 4G services.
According to a report, Reliance Jio is planning to offer 10 GB of 4G data for just Rs 700.
Airtel Wynk Games app is available for Android users and the can be downloaded from www.wynk.in.
Airtel users can now download unlimited songs and five movies per month on Wynk mobile application for free.
Airtel will also be offering free 60GB 4G data worth Rs 15,000 for 12 months under iPhone Infinity plans.
Airtel customers will need to have an activated Airtel 3G/4G pack/plan since the WiFi data consumption will be charged from this pack/plan.
In its advertisement, the operator says, Airtel 4G is the fastest network ever and If your network is faster, we will pay your mobile bills for life.
