Airtel Broadband has brought down its offerings to just four plans last month and the company has now revamped the additional data offer. Earlier, all the Airtel Broadband plans used to ship with 1000GB or 1TB additional data, however, that has changed now as the company is offering additional data depending on the broadband plan you choose. Right now, Airtel has a total of four broadband plans- Airtel Basic priced at Rs 799, Airtel Entertainment priced at Rs 1,099, Airtel Premium that costs Rs 1,599 and Airtel VIP plan priced at Rs 1,999 for every month. The Rs 1,999 VIP plan provides unlimited data to the subscribers, so it doesn't ship with any additional data offer. But the other three plans come with monthly FUP limit, which is the reason why Airtel is bundling extra data to the subscribers.
Airtel Premium Broadband Plan Provides a User 1000GB of Extra Data
After last month's broadband plans revision, Airtel's V-Fiber range of plans now starts at Rs 799 across almost all the cities where the company has operations. The Airtel Basic or Rs 799 plan offers a total of 200GB additional besides the 100GB data it ships with. The Airtel Entertainment or Rs 1,099 broadband plan offers a total of 500GB additional data, whereas the Rs 1,599 Airtel VIP plan add 1TB or 1000GB extra data to the customer's account.
The extra data credited by the company will be valid for six months from the month of credit, post which it will lapse. This offer from Bharti Airtel is pretty much identical to that of ACT Fibernet which is providing a total of 1.5TB extra data with six months validity in select cities.
There's no limit on when you can consume the extra data as it will be added to your FUP limit itself. For example, the Rs 1,599 VIP broadband plan from Airtel provides 300 Mbps speeds and 600GB FUP limit every month. However, as part of this offer, customers will get 1.6TB data while choosing the connection, post which 600GB data will be credited every month at the time of renewal.
Airtel Thanks Benefits Extended to Broadband Customers as Well
While Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in the country are slashing prices of their high-speed broadband plans to counter JioFiber's commercial launch, Bharti Airtel is not all focusing on that aspect right now. Very recently, Airtel announced that some of the Airtel V-Fiber customers would be eligible for Airtel Thanks benefits. The eligible plans are Rs 1,099, Rs 1,599 and Rs 1,999, while the Rs 799 comes just with Airtel TV premium subscription.
Airtel Thanks benefits include three months of Netflix subscription for free, one year of Amazon Prime subscription worth Rs 999, ZEE5 premium membership and Airtel TV Premium service.
Bharti Airtel Introduced Data Add-On Packs for Broadband Users
In other news, Airtel has now introduced some new data add-on packs starting at Rs 99 to its broadband users, allowing them to refill their account FUP limit. Airtel is calling these add-on plans as Airtel Smart Bytes. The Rs 99 plan offers 5GB of data, Rs 199 comes with 15GB data limit, followed by Rs 299 Smart Byte plan with 25GB of data limit. The premium Rs 1,499 Smart Byte pack from Airtel offers 200GB of data.
