Airtel is offering additional 1GB high-speed data to select users for free of cost. According to reports, this data doled out on recharge of the special plan. This gives Airtel subscribers more data than promised.
However, this 1GB of extra data is not for everyone and is offering it to random users who are getting informed via a text message. However, this additional data is only valid for three days.
This offer is similar to what Reliance Jio users have been offering to its prepaid customers. Last month Reliance Jio gave 2GB of daily data free to select users but with a four-day validity.
As per reports, an Only Tech forum member reported about this free data from Airtel first. The user has recharged their prepaid plan with a ₹48 data pack that got him 4GB of data. Normally, the ₹48 recharge gets users only 3GB of data. The additional 1GB was free.
The telco sent Roy a message to inform the subscriber of the extra 1GB of data added to their account for free. Airtel warned the user that the validity of this 1GB data is just for three days and it has been rolled out on a trial basis.
Furthermore, reports have it that a separate recharge of ₹49 Smart Recharge Pack also got the same 1GB additional data free on a trial basis. The ₹49 pack normally comes with 100MB of data and ₹38.52 talk time. It seems like Airtel is offering the benefit for recharges of the lower-priced plans, but it could also show up for high-end recharges as well.
