Airtel Launches 2GB Free GPRS Plan


Availability of affordable GPRS plan in India is a big issue. For very limited or no availability of 3G we have to survive on GPRS. Add to it, we are provided with very limited tap like 199MB etc. Now that Android devices are in market which requires constant synchronization with the web, it is difficult to survive on limited or low usage data plan. Airtel, taking this into consideration has launched an awesome 2GB free GPRS plan for its prepaid customers.

Plan Details:

Voucher: Rs.98 easy recharge or DIAL *567*11# to activate GPRS in your Mobile and recharge for Rs 98.
Validity: 30 days
Benefits: you will get 2GB data plan absolutely free for 30 days on a recharge of just Rs.98. You can also do multiple recharge and extend the limit in multiples of 2. The main advantage is you can use this plan on your pc using your phone as a modem.
Circle: Banglore

    is it only avaible in banglore, not in himachal and jalandhar??????????

    • krishna kishore

      98/- plan is available in all circles but speed is worst and the data transferred also reaching its limit without using it that much and better to by new 3g enabled handset and sim so that we can expect more and more speeds

  • Hey, airtel rocks. Is that service only for bangalore?

    Or is it available in other states as well?

  • This pack is available in all circles :)

  • Josan007

    I think it is available in all india,it is also available in haryana

  • nice plan from airtel, but we want Airtel 3G not a stupid snail mail speed GPRS.

  • sue

    kya ye keval banglore ke liye hai , kisi aur place ke liye nahi hai kya…..?

  • raj

    Its also available in delhi & NCR circle

  • ashok

    can u tell me the best plan and service provider in mobile, with downloading options, i use tatadocomo but to download i pay more..

    • Arijit Ghosh

      ashoke,i suggest reliance bcoz they produce true download speed around4 to 14.8 kbp/s so don't hasitate to use it but the recharge pack is much costly

      • india

        i would suggest you to buy 3g usb data card n use bsnl 2g sim card for surfing with 274 plan

        as 3g plans are much expensive and with bsnl 2g you will get around 30 KBps (means 240 kbps).

        just double of reliance and extremely cheap.

        • SHOAEB

          I think the bsnl 274 plan has been removed and instead 270 plan is activated….

  • Smair

    Is it available in Gujarat circle?

  • Arijit Ghosh

    This Plan Is good but the original fact is that the download speed is not expected as it is shown on adds,i expect better than that from airtel,while i using utorrent then the download speed came to 0.4 to 0.6…………..plzzzzzzzz solve this problem…………i personaly think that u need a network router………………..

    • Swapan

      using torrent and getting speed are two different things.

      You may get the same spped if you even use 1MBPS connection.

      It actually depends on the health of the torrent, better the torrent better the speed. but ofcourse not more than the limit of your connection.

      • raman

        wah kitna samajhdar hai

  • hawabol

    i've been using airtel 98 plan since 2months ,it's good but lately i've been noticing that sometimes it comes G which is very slow and E which is good +thesedays i've been charged everytime i connect which never happend before ..why..?help

    • Gaurav Kesharwani

      G means it using GPRS, And E means it is using EDGE

      EDGE have approx 3 times more faster speed………..

      see evolution of internet in context to mobile….


  • raj thakor

    this plan is good but its downloading speed is very bad.


    i m using 98 plan, but dey charge me for downloading why?

    • Swapan

      hi Sydney,

      They are actually not charging you.

      check your balance *123#

      than use GPRS when you will disconnect than balance will be the same.

      if problem presists cal me up at +919815757181

    • Suraj

      go to control panel
      Phone & Modems
      if it asks for region and area code provide it india and your area pin code
      Normally it asks 1st time
      go to your modems property
      go to advanced tap

      Extra initialization commands ((copy paste line below)
      +CGDCONT=1, “IP”,””

      dude your net will work

    • Veerakumar

      Hi first u browse through mobile then u connect phone and pc with data cable that will work still u found the same means u have to call customer care ask for the setting

  • Anshu Kumar

    In Airtel postpaid this 2GB free gprs plan is a crap as when the subscriber uses the data either on mobile or on pc using mobile as a modem, the data transfer is charged as 30 paisa per 50 KB and the CC Executives say that the 2GB free data will be deducted in the bill but as the result of this type of data charging it results in the overall increase in the unbilled amount which ultimately challanges the credit limit and so we have to make interim payments to avoid this.-Airtel dont be so mean to your postpaid customers.

    • Rahul

      yes u r absolutely right…they are fucking arseholes …they add the amont to your unbilled and when it reaches credit limit they ask for money…fucking arseholes

      • Swapan

        you both are wrong ,

        check the main accont balance before using and afterusing the internet there will be no difference.

  • KKaish ahmad

    its too smooth its very benefit things for me thanx with heartsfor it……………………..

  • madhurianil13

    1 ) if the 30 day period is over, there won't be any deduction in the usage rite ?

  • chinmay upadhyay

    why am i being charged on connecting to d internet even though i hav the 98 rs plan

  • Chaman

    Airtel can't take place of Aircel in connection with Internet Services, Aircel in just 98 gives unlimited download, no extra charge, no limitation.

    Really Aircel is the hero of pocket internet

    I love Aircel 98/- plan as well as 14/- plan

  • Chaman

    But Aircel works well in Delhi only not in all over india

    I request to Aircel that they have to spread their network to all over India so that everyone can enjoy unlimited internet in just 98

    • mukesh

      But now AIRCEL also provide only 3gb in 98

  • Rizwan
