By July 17th, 2018 AT 6:02 PM

Bharti Airtel has been in the news every now and then. The second largest wired broadband player in India has rolled out a discount offer for users choosing broadband plans for six months or one year. Airtel, which is offering a maximum bandwidth of 300 Mbps in various cities is now providing 20% discount on its broadband plans for users choosing an annual and 15% discount for users choosing the same for six months. The discount offer is valid across all the cities where Airtel is providing broadband services to the users. But do make a note that Airtel is offering the discount only on six months or annual rental plans.

For example, Airtel is offering a 300 Mbps plan of Rs 2,199 in Bengaluru city with a FUP of 1200GB. If a customer chooses the plan for six months, the price of the plan per month comes down to Rs 1,866 and the total amount for six months becomes Rs 11,200. If a customer selects the plan for one year, then the price per month comes down to Rs 1,758 and the same price of 12 months becomes Rs 21,100.

The same offer is applicable to other plans of Airtel– Rs 799, Rs 999, Rs 1,299, Rs 2,099 and Rs 2,199. As mentioned, these are the plans for Bengaluru city, and Airtel’s broadband offering differs from city to city, unlike BSNL.

This discount offer from Airtel comes as a benefit for users who are looking to avail the plans for a longer duration. Furthermore, Airtel is also providing data rollover option with its entire broadband portfolio along with free Amazon Prime subscription for one year. In Hyderabad city, the telco recently removed FUP limit on broadband plans.

With the threat of Jio GigaFiber looming on Airtel’s head, the telco is trying its best to retain the broadband subscriber base. Bharti Airtel is currently the second largest broadband service provider in India, after BSNL with the subscriber base close to three million. Several other Internet Service Providers such as Spectra, ACT Fibernet started offering 1 Gbps broadband plans across various cities, but Airtel’s maximum bandwidth plan is 300 Mbps, which was rolled out very recently.
