Airtel is seen to be rolling out this additional data to lower-priced subscribers. This seems to be for people with low incomes.
Airtel is reportedly sharing 1GB of high-speed data to selected users free of cost. This free data is being rolled out on recharge of special plan, wherein users are getting more data than promised.
This additional free data is not rolling out for all users, and Bharti Airtel is offering it to random users, intimating them via a text message.
The additional data that is being offered comes with a validity of three days only. This is similar to what Reliance Jio has been offering to its prepaid subscribers. Last month, the telco was spotted offering free 2GB daily data to select users.
- Airtel offered 4GB data instead of 3GB on Rs. 48 recharge to a subscriber
- Users are being initiated of the additional data via a text message
- Jio is recently rolling out 2GB daily data for four days to select users
The Airtel subscriber recharged their prepaid account with Rs. 48 data pack and got a total benefit of 4GB of data through this recharge. The promised data amount with this pack is 3GB, and the additional 1GB was provided by Airtel for free.
The telco sends a message to informs the subscriber of the extra 1GB of data added to their account for free. The validity of this 1GB data is just for three days and it has been rolled out on a trial basis
Also, a separate recharge of Rs. 49 Smart Recharge Pack again did trigger the addition of 1GB free data on a trial basis from Airtel. The Rs. 49 pack originally offers 100MB of data and Rs. 38.52 talk time to its subscribers.
This free data benefit is being rolled out to users randomly, and not all users may get this additional 1GB data credit on recharge of new plans. It seems like Airtel is offering the benefit for recharges of the lower-priced plans, but it could also show up for high-end recharges as well.
These Bonuses are mainly for Airtel Subscribers in India and uses Bharti Airtel
