A new week and here are the new plans from the India's largest telecom operator, Airtel. After concentrating heavily in providing offers for its prepaid customers, Bharti Airtel today revamped its myPlan Infinity postpaid plans yet again to stay in contention with the rivals.
The plans now start from Rs. 499 from the previous Rs. 549 plan and there are not many changes to this scheme. It offers the same 3GB of data along with another 3GB of data for new 4G handset users, unlimited local and STD calls with free incoming roaming calls, and 100 local and national SMS per day for the monthly billing cycle.
However, the significant change Airtel implemented is with the Rs. 799 plan as it now offers unlimited outgoing roaming calls as well, which is a great thing to see. That said, the 4G data also has been increased to 6GB from the previous 5GB of data, and it also gives 100 local and national SMS per day.
All the other plans offer the same previous stuff, but they now come with extra 1GB of data. For example, the Rs. 1199 package previously used to offer 10GB of data, but the revamped plan offers 11GB of data along with 3GB additional data for new 4G handset users.
The maximum myPlan Infinity package of Rs. 2999 now offers 40GB of data along with 3GB additional 4G data for 4G handset users. With that said, Airtel is now in-line with the Vodafone and Idea Cellular postpaid offerings, and in fact, Airtel's offerings are much better than the other two.
Airtel already made the changes to all the plans and users can alter the plans at any time starting today. Airtel at the recently concluded Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 event stated that the company would be scrapping the roaming charges from April 1, 2017.
Currently, there's no information on how much the company will cost after completely removing the roaming charges. For prepaid users, the operator introduced a new plan of Rs. 345 that offers 1GB of daily data, unlimited calling for 28 days to compete with the Reliance JioPrime membership plan.
What do you think of these changes from Airtel? We certainly liked the Rs. 799 myPlan Infinity scheme. What's your preferred plan? Let us known in the comments space below.
