Jio Effect: After BSNL, Airtel Turns Aggressive – Offers Free 30GB 4G Data
This monsoon, it is literally raining data for consumers.
Now Airtel has declared an aggressive stand, as they have announced 30 GB of free data, under their 4G plans.
Starting July 1st, this new offer from Airtel has been designed only for post-paid users.
Who Can Avail Airtel’s Free 30 GB Data?
Code-named as ‘Monsoon Surprise’, postpaid Airtel users who are paying Rs. 499, Rs. 649 and Rs. 799 per month, can avail this new 30 GB free data offer.
This shall be valid for three billing cycles, starting from July 1st.
Hence, those users who are opting for this offer can get 10 GB per month for July, August and September.
After September, this offer shall be withdrawn.
Bharti Airtel CEO Gopal Vittal said, “The company is sending another shower of data for three more billing cycles, as part of Monsoon Surprise,”
Note here, that the new ‘Monsoon Surprise’ offer is an extension of Airtel’s previous ‘Data Surprise’ offer, wherein prepaid users received free 30 GB for free months.
Only 4G users with a 4G handset can avail this new offer for post-paid users.
How To Avail Free 30 GB From Airtel?
Users need to download MyAirtel app and check out the current offers section for availing this new offer. Those who are already subscribed to Rs. 499, Rs. 649 and Rs. 799 per month plan will be able to see the option by default.
Others will be required to subscribe to these postpaid plans in order to avail free 30 GB for three billing cycle.
The additional GBs would be automatically credited to the account, at the start of the billing cycle, till September.
Earlier this year, Airtel has offered free 4G data for a year, if any user ditched their existing operator.
However, Airtel received a big setback earlier this month, when Competition Commission dismissed Airtel’s plea against Jio regarding free offers.
Now, it seems, Airtel has turned aggressive to use the same plot against Jio, in garnering market share.
