In response to a directive from the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai), Airtel, a leading telecom company, has recently made updates to its terms and conditions for 5G tariff plans. 

Airtel's 'Unlimited' 5G Usage Is Limited To 300GB In 30 Days, No Commercial Data Usage Allowed

Read on to find out Airtel’s clarification!

TRAI Directs Airtel and Jio To Provide Details About Terms And Conditions of Unlimited 5G Offer

Trai had requested Airtel and its competitor, Reliance Jio, to provide clear details regarding the terms and conditions of their ‘Unlimited 5G data’ offerings following a complaint from Vodafone-Idea about alleged predatory pricing. 

Both Airtel and Reliance Jio have complied with Trai’s request and revised the terms and conditions for their respective tariff plans.

Airtel’s modifications include a revision to its fair usage policy (FUP) for 5G unlimited data, explicitly stating that commercial usage is defined as data consumption exceeding 300GB in a 30-day period. 

Airtel’s Clarification On Terms And Conditions

According to the updated terms and conditions, the “Unlimited 5G Data offer is an introductory offer for Airtel customers to experience the power of 5G.Airtel customers on eligible plans who have 5G-enabled devices and have latched onto the Airtel 5G Plus network can now enjoy unlimited 5G Data.”

The revised terms and conditions include a new clause for clarification, emphasizing that these offers are exclusively meant for personal and non-commercial use, excluding commercial, special, or enterprise plans. Airtel retains the right to terminate, suspend, or modify the offer or services in cases of commercial or fraudulent use.

Having launched its 5G services in October 2022, Airtel claims to have achieved nationwide 5G coverage within a year. The company introduced Airtel Xstream Air Fiber in Delhi and Mumbai, positioned as India’s first wireless home Wi-Fi service powered by Airtel 5G Plus, with plans starting at Rs 499. This move by Airtel reflects its commitment to providing an enhanced and transparent experience for its customers amid the evolving landscape of 5G services in the country.

Jio and OneWeb Secures Licenses for Satellite Internet Services

In order to provide satellite internet services in India, Jio Satellite Communications Ltd and Eutelsat OneWeb have been granted the requisite licenses. 

Besides a pan-India ISP (Internet Service Provider) license, both of these companies hold the GMPCS (Global Mobile Personal Communication by Satellite) license.
