With the entry of Jio in the telecom market, the competition intensified. The landscape of the telecom industry has changed. All the telecom companies are coming up with attractive new data offers, trying to win the customer base, and ultimately win the telecom war.
The telecom companies like Airtel, Vodafone, Idea and BSNL, trying their best to come up with plans and offers which can help them get their customers back. To compete with this, Airtel had launched a lucrative offer of unlimited 4G data for just Rs 1495, following which Vodafone offered 10 GB data on recharge of 1GB.
India’s largest telecom service provider Bharti Airtel has announced a new data plan for all customers purchasing a new 4G mobile handset. The user will get 10 GB 4G data on a recharge of Rs 259 on the purchase of any new 4G handset.
Earlier the Airtel 10 GB offer was available exclusive to only Samsung Galaxy J series phones, but now it has been extended to all 4G smartphones. The telecommunication giant has announced that all the users purchasing a new 4G handset will get 10GB data for the price Rs. 259.
When the user buys a new smartphone and recharges with 259, 1GB data will be instantly credited to the customer’s account and the additional 9GB data can be claimed by the customer through MyAirtel App. However, the data will be valid for 28 days. And the maximum number of recharges a user can process within 90 days is only three within this offer.
This special offer is now available all across the country and is available across all brands of 4G smartphones. Airtel 4G is currently available in only 18 circles across India. The company will offer 10 GB 3G data for the other non-4G circles.
Speaking on this new offer, Ajai Puri, Director – Market Operations, Bharti Airtel, said in a statement:
We are proud to have pioneered 4G network for users in India. 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.
