India’s largest telecom service provider Bharti Airtel has announced an new data plan for all customers purchasing a new 4 G mobile handset. The company is offering 10 GB 4 G/3 G data on a recharge of Rs 259 along with any new 4 G handset. Of this, 1 GB data will be instantly credited to the customer’s account and additional 9 GB data can be claimed by the customer through MyAirtel App. The data will be valid for 28 days. Users can avail a maximum of three recharges within 90 days, on the offer.
The special offer, which was introduced in Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh & Chhattisgarh last week, has now been extended across India and is available across all brands of 4 G handsets. This invitational offer has been designed for our data savvy customers who can now experience high speed broadband on Airtel’s 4G network with their new devices.
The move could be seen as aimed at countering Reliance Jio, which has its own ecosystem of applications that offer digital content. The newly updated app now provides access to apps such as Ditto TV, Hike Messenger app, Wynk Music, Wynk Movies, Airtel Money and Juggernaut. The telco said that Ditto TV with over 100 live TV channels and popular TV shows is available without any subscription charges. The MyAirtel app also features Airtel Cloud and Airtel Dialer.
