India’s leading telecom operator, Bharti Airtel at an event in New Delhi announced a new feature where the Airtel postpaid customers can now carry forward the unused data from their current billing cycle to the next billing cycle. This is probably the best feature Airtel postpaid users can have around. Every Airtel Postpaid customer can now accumulate up to 200GB per account.
Consider this example; you’re on Airtel Rs. 799 plan which gives 10GB data per month or billing cycle. And for this month, your usage is just 5GB, and you’ve still 5GB left in your account for this month. Previously, the remaining data used to expire when the new billing cycle starts. However, from now, the data will be forwarded to the next billing cycle, meaning users will get 15GB data (10GB new billing cycle+ 5GB carry forward data from previous month).
If you remember, Idea Cellular, India’s third-largest telecom operator announced the same feature back in 2015 and that too for postpaid customers. So, Airtel is second in the list to roll out this feature.
Furthermore, to sweeten the deal, Airtel announced that the free Monsoon offer data of 10GB per month would also be forwarded for the next billing cycle. Having said that, this carry forward feature will be live starting this month.
At the moment, Bharti Airtel is offering postpaid plans under the ‘myPlan Infinity’ schemes, where the company is proving eight postpaid plans ranging from Rs. 299 to Rs. 2,999. The Rs. 299 plan offers 600MB data per billing cycle and unlimited voice calls (incoming roaming as well).
The Rs. 2999 plan gives unlimited calls to any network across the country, along with a whopping 60GB data per month. All the plans above Rs. 649 offer unlimited voice calls (including roaming incoming and outgoing), but the data per month differs. For example, the Rs. 649 plan gives 7GB data, while the Rs. 1199 plan users get 18GB data per month. The Rs. 799 plan provides 10GB per month. Along with the per month data, users will also get extra 10GB data per month for three months under the Monsoon offer, while new users get the same amount of data under Welcome offer.
