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

  • Gaurav Chavda

    I think Airtel should this plan with same validity and same conditions, with 1 GB in recharge of 49 rupees…. and 300 sms free

    airtel should provide this plan..

  • Ya this an superb recharge option for net users..but the speed is too slow…one cant use it if he or she is in urgent!!!

  • manu_ald

    just checked airtel gprs speed on PC, its currently better than voda phone as I am regular internet user and have tried most providers, i think airtel has better connectivity.
    here’s the speed test result

    I am using 3G usb stick from huawei which is connected to PC and
    i am now going to recharge this for Rs.98 and check speed for next few days, if this is better i’ll drop the Voda postpaid connection which i use for backup connectivity.

  • gurdeep

    airtel GPRS service should be enhanced by airtel to the leading speed of other service provider …because it is considered as the best service and coverage provider…..thank you….

  • beram

    It’s better to buy docomo sim and do internet much half the cost of airtel. Shame on you airtel.

  • Shreyas

    i dont think the offer is valid for postpaid-blasted airtel-i am supposedly using the 2gb plan- and i get a msg stating that my usage of 1645 crossed my bill limit of 1300…
    there is NO way that i crossed the limit of 2 gb a month. i used it very, very sparingly, and mostly only to read text on and downloaded maybe 4-5 apps(not more than a total of 50 mb).
    i just disabled the GPRS service. if i want net, i think i will buy a photon plus or something.

    airtel cheats a bit- back when i had a 256 kbps limited connection, they tried to give me a bill of 14000 for 3 months time- i refused to pay. they threatened to go to court and I showed them that my comp had gone for servicing (my amc company had the records to prove it- they shut up after that and simply cut off my connection and did not even come back to collect the phone :-|)
