Airtel Offering Unlimited Data For Xstream Broadband Users; Plans Starting At Rs 799 For 100 Mpbs Speed!
After Jio launched its unnatural set of services for the people of the country for the very first time, we won’t lie the telecom sector did go a little crazy. The market was appearing to tilt towards one wide, that side being towards Jio.
All the major competitors like Airtel, Idea and BSNL had to strategise newer plans to withstand this unprecedented blow.
Even today, the telecom network companies have to constantly come up with innovative practices and plans to bolster their stand and also provide the best fit for the users.
Airtel’s New Plan
This year has started on a rather good note. Fleeing in from Bharti Airtel, we have come to know that the telecom giant is now offering unlimited data on long-term plans. As of now, this service is provided only to customers in the Chennai circle.
Due to Jio’s mega move, service providers had to provide the customers with heavy dollops of data at low costs, along with various giveaways. Airtel, one of the leading ISPs in India, has apparently upped the ante by offering unlimited data on its long-term plans.
According to a reliable report, Airtel has begun doling out unlimited data to its Xstream Fiber customers in Chennai who subscribe to six-monthly and annual plans. This change is highlighted in the Airtel Thanks app and on the Airtel website of the Chennai circle.
What is this Plan About?
The six-monthly plan and yearly subscriptions of the broadband plans, starting at Rs 799 by Airtel, shall come with unlimited data. Airtel also gives an option of the Rs 299 add-on to receive unlimited data on the Rs 799, Rs 999, and the Rs 1,499 monthly plans.
Along with this, you can get unlimited data if you pay Rs 299 over and above the monthly subscription of Rs 799, providing up to 100Mbps data; Rs 999, providing up to 200Mbps data and Rs 1,499, which gives up to 300Mbps data.
However, on subscribing to either bi-annual or annual plans of any one of the three plans, you are likely to get unlimited data without having to pay the add-on charges. The report also clarifies that even though the data provided to customers will be unlimited, there is a cap at 3.3TB every month.
Notably, Airtel already has unlimited broadband data plans in Hyderabad and Vishakhapatnam. You do not need to pay for the Rs 299 add-on in these two circles. Neither are you required to subscribe to the six-monthly plan or the annual plan to avail unlimited data under your Xstream Fiber account. Besides these two circles, Airtel does not have the option in other circles.
