Bharti Airtel to Offer Free Data for One More Month; Affordable International Roaming Plans Announced

By April 15th, 2017 AT 12:27 PM

Bharti Airtel has started sending out emails to its loyal customers saying that it will offer free data for one more month via the MyAirtel app to make its customers holidays even better. Back in March, Airtel offered free data to all its postpaid customers to celebrate the India’s fastest network label given by Ookla. With this addition, Airtel is now offering free data for four months.

The company’s CEO, Gopal Vittal, in his email said “We want your holidays to be even better. So we are sending across an Airtel Surprise for you. Now enjoy some free data every month for the next three months. That should cover any long vacation you may have planned. All you need to do is claim your surprise on My Airtel app before April 30th. Go on, create and share more memories with your loved ones all summer long.”

Do make a note that the offer can only be redeemed from MyAirtel app. A banner is also visible for the postpaid customers asking to claim the data, however, when we press the banner, it redirects to the home page.

Bharti Airtel is also offering exciting perks with international roaming plans. Vittal in its mail says “The surprises don’t end here. Here’s the double. If you are planning an international holiday, we have something more for you. We’ve taken significant steps to ensure that you’re protected from bill shocks while travelling abroad. We’ve negotiated with global operators, on your behalf, to get you the best international roaming rates and deliver great value to you.”

For example, imagine you’re travelling to Singapore and haven’t activated any roaming pack. If your data usage exceeds the Rs. 499 pack value, then Airtel will automatically add the Rs. 499 pack at no extra cost. Speaking of which, Airtel’s new daily pack costs Rs. 499 and provides unlimited incoming calls, free data, SMS, and outgoing calls to India. Furthermore, if your usage is below the Rs. 499 plan, you will be charged based on the standard rates that are applicable.

Airtel is offering huge benefits for the prepaid users of various proportions, and with this free data extension, they are looking to offer equal benefits for both the prepaid and postpaid customers.
