Airtel Launches Unlimited 4G Data Pack for 90 days at Rs. 1495

airtel-4g-1495-planAirtel today unveiled a “special 4G data pack that offers free data for 90 days”. In the Delhi circle, the pack is priced at Rs. 1,495 for existing prepaid users, and Rs. 1,494 for new users on their first recharge. The telecom operator says the new ‘special 4G data pack’ is currently available in the Delhi circle, but will be launched across other circles over the “next few days.” Of course, the decision to offer such a pack could be seen as a move to counter the much-talked about entry of Reliance Jio into the Indian telecom market. The foray has already had several ripples, and is expected to continue to drop the market’s tariffs across voice and data plans. The pack will however, include a FUP (Fair Usage Policy) that will force the user to browse the Internet at a reduced speed after using up 30GB of data over the 90 days period.  Commenting on the offer, Ajai Puri, Director – Operations (India & South Asia), Bharti Airtel said, “At Airtel, we are focused on providing great value to customers. Customers with 4G handsets generally consume large amounts of data and this proposition is specifically aimed at them. With this pack these customers can stay online round the clock without having to worry about exhausting their data limits or going for frequent recharges.
The war of words between Bharti Airtel and Reliance Jio on additional PoIs [Points of Interconnect]. Previously, Airtel denied all allegations made by Jio with regard to the release of additional points of interconnections (PoIs) from Airtel to Jio and MNP requests. The company had categorically said that it had agreed to release the additional PoIs – which was three times the present number of PoIs — to Jio and ensured there were no capacity constraints from its end. “It is Jio that seems to be dilly-dallying on the issue and not cooperating deliberately. It appears that the constant rhetoric may be a ploy by Jio to cover up some technical issues in their own network, which is causing call failures, by constantly blaming other operators,” Airtel had alleged.
