In the run-up the launch of the Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) service by Reliance Jio, which is called the JioFiber now, the broadband industry went through many changes to prepare itself for the launch of the competitively priced FTTH service. However, the Reliance JioFiber plans did not impress the consumers as they were expected to do, and instead, there were some other offerings in the market which caught the attention of the customers. Instead of going for extremely high speeds with less data, the consumers wanted more data but with enough speed to allow them to do tasks like streaming and browsing. In this category, many players started introducing broadband plans with various offers. One of the major names in this list remains that of Airtel Xstream Fiber, which is simply the new name for Airtel’s fibre-based broadband service. The broadband plans being provided by Bharti Airtel are some of the most talked-about plans and rightly so because these plans come with some unique benefits which the other plans miss out on. Here are the unique benefits which Bharti Airtel broadband customers will enjoy with their plans.
Unlimited FUP On Extra Amount
Firstly, we are getting to actually the most unique feature which Airtel broadband plans come with. Usually, while the subscribers select a particular broadband plan, especially if its a fixed FUP one, and in between they want to access unlimited data, the only option is to change the plan and go through a hassle filled process. But, Airtel Xstream Fiber will be easily able to switch from fixed GB plans to unlimited data plans by paying a mere Rs 299 charge. So for example, if you are using a fixed GB plan and in one of the months you need to use more data, you can pay up Rs 299 and access unlimited data on that particular plan for the rest of the month.
Benefits On the Entertainment Front
When it comes to bundling entertainment benefits, the favourite freebie to bundle for the telecom operators these days is the subscription to OTT platforms, and Bharti Airtel is no exception to this rule. However, while Airtel is like others in this regard, the platform to which it offers access is the main attraction. With its plans, Airtel Xstream Fiber customers enjoy Netflix, and Amazon Prime membership. Above Rs 999 and above plans, Bharti Airtel extends three months of Netflix subscription to the broadband customers and a year worth of Amazon Prime membership as well. While other broadband plans do offer similar benefits, but a bundled Netflix subscription is something that no other telecom operator offers with its broadband plans right now. Thrown in, with this mix, is also a ZEE5 subscription for the broadband customers of Airtel. All of this is in addition to the unlimited calling benefit which the Airtel broadband subscribers enjoy.
More Additional Benefits
Now it is worth noting that Bharti Airtel is not only a broadband service providers like some of its other competitors, but it also offers mobile network and DTH services as well. Hence, the subscribers of Bharti Airtel postpaid and Airtel Digital TV get a broadband connection, they would be able to get a 10% discount under Airtel Home. This is something that the other ISPs and FTTH providers are not giving. So, the Airtel broadband plans become even more attractive for Airtel subscribers.
