Bharti Airtel has been sending targeted ad banners to selected postpaid users for its work from home data add-on plan that provides users with 15GB of data for Rs 100. With India currently under COVID-19 lockdown, several people are working from home and Airtel seems to be targeting these users with the work from home add-on pack. As the data from the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) suggests, India has only 19.14 million wireline broadband users for a period ending December 2019. With the majority of the users using mobile data to perform professional work, telecom companies have rolled out several prepaid add-on packs with extra data or even offering standalone data packs. Airtel has now targeted the postpaid users with the work from home add-on pack.
