Airtel Reduces Non-Airtel Local & STD Rates

Airtel Reduces Non-Airtel Local & STD RatesBharti Airtel Ltd, India’s leading GSM service provider has slashed the rate of calls  made to non-Airtel phones for its Prepaid customers in Andhra Pradesh circle.

Now Prepaid customers can avail the cheapest non-Airtel Local and STD calls at just 60p/min, for a recharge of Rs 62, valid for 180 days.  What’s more the scheme provides a talktime of Rs 20! The scheme has been launched less than a week after Reliance introduced the SIMPLY RELIANCE scheme on 07 October.

While the offer is independent of the existing “Airtel Advantage” plan, and both the earlier and new schemes co-exist, a comparison with the original AIRTEL ADVANTAGE plan shows benefits to customers in both the non-Airtel Local & STD call tariffs, as well as the Recharge value.

Airtel Advantage RC 62
Recharge Value Rs 51 Rs 62
Taltime nil Rs 20
Validity 30 days 180 days
Airtel 2 Airtel Local 50 p/min 50 p/min
Airtel 2 Airtel STD 50 p/min 50 p/min
Airtel 2 non-Airtel Local 75 p/min 60 p/min
Airtel 2 non-Airtel STD 75 p/min 60 p/min

SMS and Roaming tariffs are as per regular tariffs.

Reliance: without power all local/std/even roaming:50p, TATA: local: 1rs/10min etc. so its sure that there network traffic will be much bigger than airtel and vodafone as people now a… Read more »
