Bharti Airtel, a while back silently introduced a Rs 193 data add-on pack to counter Reliance Jio and its affordable tariff plans. Initially, the plan was made available for Airtel prepaid users in Punjab, however, since the last couple of days, Airtel is offering the same plan in various circles such as Andhra Pradesh & Telangana, Karnataka, Delhi, and several other popular circles. Alongside the Rs 193 data add-on pack, Airtel also has an entry-level Rs 49 data add-on pack, which is also available for many users in the said circles. But most of the users are confused on what are these data add-on packs actually are and how do they differ from Reliance Jio’s add-on packs. Well, let’s find out together.
Airtel’s Rs 193 Data Add-On Pack Details
Firstly, Airtel’s data add-on pack differs from Reliance Jio’s data add-on pack. Reliance Jio has a bunch of add-on packs ranging from Rs 11 to Rs 101, and they offer a fixed amount of data. For example, the Rs 101 data add-on pack gives 6GB of data. But the functionality of both the add-on packs from Jio and Airtel is the same. They come with the validity of the unlimited combo plan. For example, if you’re on the Rs 198 plan of Jio and recharge the Rs 101 data add-on pack, then you’ll receive additional 6GB data with the validity of Rs 198 plan, and the same applies to long validity plans.
The scenario is pretty similar to Bharti Airtel as well. But the benefit differs though. Airtel’s Rs 193 data add-on pack provides 1GB data per day on top of the existing unlimited combo plan.
For instance, if you’re on Airtel’s Rs 509 prepaid unlimited combo plan which offers benefits of 1.4GB data per day for 90 days. If you recharge the Rs 193 add-on pack on top of Rs 509 plan, then you can enjoy 2.4GB data per day for the same 90 days. The same applies to all the Airtel’s unlimited prepaid combo plans such as Rs 199, Rs 349, Rs 399, Rs 448, etc.
This is one of the best offerings from Bharti Airtel till date, and of course, no one is aware of this data add-on pack.
Airtel’s Rs 49 Data Add-On Pack Details
Alongside the Rs 193 data add-on pack, Airtel also has a Rs 49 prepaid data add-on plan, which gives benefits of 1GB on top of the existing tariff plan benefit. So, if you recharge this Rs 49 add-on pack on top of Rs 509 plan, you will get 1.4GB data per day and 1GB data for the entire validity period of 90 days.
That said, these are segmented offers from Airtel and is already live in some circles as mentioned above.
