Airtel launches long duration 4G data pack with effective rate less than Rs.50/GB

Airtel today announced the launch of a special data pack that offers 30 GB 4G data for 90 days. While the pack is available for Rs.1495 for existing users; new users can avail this offer via first recharge of Rs.1494 thus bringing down the per GB cost to just below Rs.50 (which was the price point advertised by Jio at the time of launch). After crossing the 30 GB data limit, there will be no overages charged but the speed will be throttled to 2G level.


Commenting on the newly launched offers, Ajai Puri, Director – Operations (India & South Asia), Bharti Airtel said, “At Airtel, we are focused on providing great value to customers. Customers with 4G handsets generally consume large amounts of data and this proposition is specifically aimed at them. With this pack these customers can stay online round the clock without having to worry about exhausting their data limits or going for frequent recharges.”

The pack is currently available in Delhi and will be launched across other circles over the next few days. Last month, Airtel first launched the data pack at a denomination of Rs 1498 which came with upfront 1 GB one-time data then brought down the cost of 1 GB data at Rs 51 for a span of 1 year. Later Idea cellular followed them and launched similar offer, claiming themselves as being an affordable data operator to offer cheapest data rates in India.


Airtel prepaid users can also log into to avail existing active offers available.

Rs 50/Gb will make sense if some just pay Rs 50 and get 1GB data. This doesn’t make any sense once you have to pay 1500 or so. Its like–If some provide unlimited data in Rs 10K, doesn’t it mean he is providing 1Gb at Rs 0? 10K divided by infinity is zero.
