Jio Effect: Airtel offering 1000GB free broadband data for 8 months
(C) Provided by India Today Jio Effect: Airtel offering 1000GB free broadband data for 8 months The telecom sector in India is still at war, even after almost a year since the launch of disruptor, Reliance Jio. Airtel, being the biggest incumbent player in the industry is probably the only company that is equipped to tackle the onslaught of offers from Jio. The data-wars were not limited to the telecom industry; months after the launch of Reliance Jio, the company launched JioFiber.
JioFiber specifically targeted the broadband market of India. Though it hasn’t been launched commercially, it still introduced disruption in the broadband sector. In response, Airtel launched broadband plans that sound too good to be true.
The company is offering 1000GB of data with most of their high-end broadband plans. The plans were launched in May but are still keeping Airtel consumers from straying towards JioFiber.
According to Airtel, these are the best selling broadband plans.
There are four plans (Rs 1099, Rs 1299, Rs 1499, Rs 1799) which can get you 1000 GB of bonus data, which will be valid till March 31, 2018. The lowest plan of Rs 899 will fetch the user 500 GB till March 31, 2018. The offer cannot be combined with any other offer by Airtel and can only be availed by an online purchase.
The offer is being provided by Airtel broadband to any customer who wishes to avail Airtel’s DSL services after 12th June 2017.
In order for a new customer to avail the Offer, the eligible customer must visit the page www.airtel.in/broadband and select base plan, enter mobile number and address to raise request for new broadband connection or contact customer care to apply for subscription to Airtel Broadband services.
Upon subscription to one of the select plans under the present offers, and upon expiry of a period of 7 days following the date of activation of their new connection, a customer shall, subject to feasibility at the point of connection, be able to enjoy additional data, in addition to the base plan chosen by them, which comes with the same speed as per chosen base plan.
