Airtel Broadband currently offers similar unlimited voice calling add-on for its broadband customers at Rs 49 and Rs 99 respectively. Last year, Indian telecom regulator TRAI had removed termination charges for calls made from and to landline telephones. This has made way for operators like BSNL and Airtel to offer unlimited calling from landline phones.
