As, Reliance Jio extended its free welcome offer by another 3 months, calling it the Happy New Year offer, Bharti Airtel has now announced the launch of two new bundled packs of Rs. 345 and Rs. 145 for its prepaid customers that offer free voice calling across the country, along with substantial data benefits.
The new Rs. 345 pack by Airtel offers free unlimited Local and STD voice calls to any network in India. Along with this, the prepaid customers will get 1GB of 4G data. This pack also offers 50MB of 2G data, ideally suited for Web surfing and accessing light social media applications on basic mobile phones.
On the other hand, the new Rs. 145 pack by Airtel also offers free unlimited Local and STD voice calls across India, but only to other Airtel customers. This pack comes with 300MB of 4G data and 50MB of 2G data for basic mobile phones.
Both the Rs. 345 and Rs. 145 Airtel prepaid packs have a validity of 28 days. Airtel has provided pricing for the Delhi circle, and says pricing of the prepaid packs may vary from circle to circle. It also added that customers in Kerala will avail the data benefits on 2G/4G networks.
This is another initiative from us to bring innovative bundle offers to our customers in line with our endeavour to provide the great value backed by a superior network experience.
