airtel-logoAirtel has just increased the postpaid rentals by 12% in the NCR region. The hike has been for low rental plans.

“Effective 3-Dec 2014, bill plan rental for your Airtel mobile will be revised from Rs. 199 per month to Rs. 224 per month,” is what the country’s largest telecom operator communicated to its customers. Upon being contact, Airtel said that it had increased the tariffs of only a few of the low cost rental plans. However, the benefits to be offered will remain unchanged.

The hike is the second one from the telecom giant within a span of 3 months. Back in September, it had hiked its internet tariffs by 33% for postpaid customers and reduced the benefits available to the customers under various prepaid packs. The hike in the tariffs by various telecom operators these days are believed to be because of the huge amounts spent by the operators in spectrum auctions.

However, Airtel has been riding high and it just posted a consolidated net profit of Rs 1,383 crores for the quarter ending September 2014. Its 4G services have started rolling out as well. Let us wait an watch, what the future has in store for us and the operator.

Airtel has just increased the postpaid rentals by 12% in the NCR region. The hike has been for low rental plans. My question is why they are increasing amount Airtel bill is currently in its 2 times increased postpaid Plan in the last 3 months that mean 12% airtel has always performed with a view to profit rather with the aim of activating only this is the witness. In the past quarter in September 2014, Rs. 1,383 cores profit earned. The government cares not about this issue and people also not have aware about Nation.


In Maharashtra Circle I Feel Idea Is Best For 2G & 3G Coverage. Vodafone Is Also Good.But In Some Small Town Vodafone Has No 3G.Idea Has 3G Coverage In Small Town Where Airtel & Vodafone Lacks Even 2G Coverage ! Yes 2G ! But I See Good Speeds In Vodafone 3G 8-9Mbps Where Idea Provides 5-6Mbps,Tata Docomo 3-6Mbps & Yes ! BSNL Hardly Provides1Mbps If You Are Lucky ! No One Is Near Idea Cellular In Terms Of Network Coverage As They Have 80% Of Ther BTS 3G Enabled.But Idea’s Sound Quality Suffers Sometimes.
