Airtel launches paper recharge vouchers for Cyber Café pack

After six weeks of launching Cyber Café pack for its customers , Bharti Airtel has now launched Cyber Café paper vouchers. Cyber Café pack offers Airtel customers to enjoy unlimited data for an hour at a nominal cost. Earlier, Cyber Café internet pack was available through USSD code *121*8# to activate the pack. remembering USSD codes is difficult & wrong code can direct the user to activate another pack, hence the company has now launched paper vouchers of the pack to ease the activation process.

Unlike USSD activations, paper vouchers of the pack would cost slightly more. While activating the pack through USSD costs Rs. 5 from main account balance, the paper vouchers would be available at Rs. 6. With the Cyber Café pack, any Airtel prepaid customer can enjoy unlimited 2G internet at a nominal cost that too for an hour. Which makes it cheaper than visiting local Cyber Café’s. As half of the Airtel customers are using 2G network & operators are offering only 20 MB 2G data at that cost, an unlimited pack can offer those users internet access without worrying about data balance during the validity.

As per our sources, Airtel’s Cyber Café pack is already getting a good number of activations from the customers, especially from rural areas & B-C category circles. Introducing the pack as paper voucher would help the company to spread the pack among masses, while the company would get a good chance of getting more data revenues. Also, the pack would help many First Time internet users to explore the internet who can later be regular data users.

“remembering USSD codes is difficult & wrong code can direct the user to activate another pack”. That’s the big question. Why can’t TRAI issue unique USSD Codes which are to be followed by all. Like: 1. *111# for account related information. 2. *222# for acount recharge related like data pack, voice pack etc. (may deduct main balance. Double confirmation is required before activation/ recharge) 3. *999# for VAS like callertune/ news alerts etc. (may deduct main balance. Double confirmation is required before activation/ recharge). Since the services offered by operators may differ, the sub-category (like *123*5#) may differ but some… Read more »
