Aircel offering 25% extra data for recharges through USSD portal

Aircel has been doing its share of work to remain in the competition with the incumbents. It has been giving extra talktime, bonus data and low roaming tariffs to retain its market share of subscribers. Earlier this month Aircel started offering Rs.115 talktime plus 150MB 2G data for Rs.108 with 15 day validity. Now the operator has come up with a unique offering where it is giving 25% extra 2G data for recharges done through the USSD platform in Kolkata circle.


Rs.148 voucher which earlier gave 2GB 2G data and after that unlimited at 32 Kbps now gives 2.5GB 2G data and after that unlimited at 32 Kbps. The extra data offering is not available on the lower denomination and short validity vouchers.

Aircel currently has 2G, 3G as well as 4G services but has negative net worth and has not been allowed to bid for fresh spectrum in circles where it does not currently hold spectrum in a particular band. Users are advised to confirm with customer care before recharging with any denomination.
