Bharti Airtel, which has come up with various ‘free data’ schemes of late, has kicked off one more such scheme — offering 3 GB of free data per month for those availing certain handpicked recharge and billing schemes.
For prepaid users, the free data is available if they recharge Rs 345 per month. The Rs 345 recharge also gives free unlimited voice calls to any network, as well as 1 GB of 4G data, taking the total to 4 GB.
Similarly, pospaid users have to go for any of Airtel’s ‘Infinity’ plans to get the 3GB per month offer.
The free data is offered for a period of 1 year.
“Customers will get free 3GB data every month till December 31, 2017 with select Prepaid and Postpaid packs under this offer. This free data benefit will be over and above the pack/plan benefits,” the company said.
Separately, Airtel is also offering 4G data as cheap as 6 GB for Rs 147 to many of its customers.
The new, 12 months offer is available to any customer with a 4G mobile handset that is currently not on the Airtel network.
Any customer, including existing customers, upgrading to a new 4G handset can also avail this offer.
But any Airtel customer who is already using the company’s 4G service will not get the freebies.
This offer will be available to customer across India starting tomorrow and will close on February 28, 2017, it said.
Commenting on the newly launched offer, Mr. Ajai Puri, Director – Market Operations, Bharti Airtel, said, “We are inviting customers to experience 4G through the year on India’s fastest network. We are seeing increasing penetration of 4G handsets across the country and believe that this attractive offer will provide an opportunity to more and more customers to enjoy high speed broadband on their devices with Airtel.”
The company has a Rs 549 Infinity plan, which will now offer unlimited free calling plus 6 GB data (3GB regular data + 3GB free data) per month. The Rs 799 Infinity plan will offer unlimited free calling plus 8 GB data (5 GB regular data + 3GB free data) per month along with other pack benefits.
Postpaid customers can claim the free data through MyAirtel App.
