Bharti Airtel’s new prepaid plan prices have been revised from today midnight with a 20-25% hike in cost. But, apart from changing prices, the company has also launched a new offer to provide free 500MB data per day on 4 prepaid plans.
Under the offer, any customer recharging with Rs 839, Rs 719, Rs 299 and Rs 265 will get an additional 500MB/day data till plan validity. This offer came as a relief for users who haven’t done recharge in advance as now they can downgrade their pack and continue to get higher data.
Rs 719 plan provides 1.5GB/ day data but with this offer, customers will get a total of 2GB/ day data for 84 days. Before the price hike, Airtel was offering the same benefits of 2GB/day data for 84 days at Rs 698. This made an effective hike of only Rs 21 in 2GB/day plan with 84 days validity.
Similarly, the monthly plan of 1.5GB/ day data effective cost increased by just Rs 16. Until yesterday the Rs 249 pack offered 1.5GB/ day data, now users can get 1GB/ day + 500MB/ day data with the Rs 265 plan.
There is just a Rs 1 difference in the monthly 2GB/ day unlimited pack. Previously, it was available for Rs 298, now after the price increase, customers can get 1.5GB/ day + 500MB/ day data with the Rs 299 plan.
