Airtel increased the 2G GPRS Data rates by reducing the data benefit offered under its most popular monthly GPRS Pack of Rs.98 which is now giving only 1 GB data download instead of 2 GB offered earlier.

Airtel also announced one small revision of its prepaid ISD tariff. Now ISD call rates are increased by up to 10 per cent  for some destinations.

In July-2011, Airtel had hike 20% in prepaid tariff as earlier we shared on TelecomTalk. Later, other leading mobile service providers live Vodafone, IDEA and BSNL also increased rates of their prepaid mobile services.
