Airtel Launches New Affordable Tariff Plans For 3G Customers

Last year, Airtel finally launched the much-awaited 3G services in India. The company has won 3G license for 13 telecom circles in India including Mumbai, Delhi, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh (West), Rajasthan, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, West Bengal, Himachal Pradesh, Bihar, Assam, North East, Jammu & Kashmir. The 3G plans announced by Airtel and other operators were costly and not affordable of most of us. Soon after the launch of 4G services in India, Airtel went ahead and slashed 3G data plan rates by up to 70%.

Earlier, the subscribers would have to shell out Rs.201, Rs.450 and Rs.750 for 250 MB, 600 MB and 2 GB of data respectively. Now, the customers will have to pay just Rs.100, Rs.250 and Rs.450 for 300 MB, 1GB and 2GB of data respectively. Airtel has also launched a new 3G plan for heavy data subscribers, which allows then to download 10 GB of data for just Rs.1500. The new Airtel 3G packs are now available for both pre-paid and post-paid customers across circles using phones as well as dongles. Check out the complete tariff below.

These 3G data plans comes with a validity of 30 days. However, Airtel pre-paid customers can opt for a weekly data plan, which gives you 150 MB of data for just Rs.45 with a validity of 7 days. Airtel has also announced the new Smartbytes for 3G, which allows the customers to continue enjoying the 3G experience even after exhausting their monthly data limits using the add-on packs. Sadly, the Smartbytes is currently available only for the post-paid customers.

    So this looks to be Airtel’s new approach to fleese it’s customers by charging them Rs 250 more for their 10GB plan. If you notice, the top end plans have been made more expensive. It was earlier for Rs 1250. Now it’s Ra 1500!! Plus, the speeds will not let us know how much have we consumed already. What’s the point of using SmartBytes when the damage shall already been done to my pockets? 3G is dangerous for many if it’s not unlimited.

  • if u call these plans cheap then wat about aircels’s cheap 3g plans? they r way cheaper then airtl & m getin 680kbps transfr speed on aircl 3g. a smart guy wil go for aircel’s Rs. 997 unlimited plan worth 10GB 7.2mbps rather then airtel’s Rs.1500 worth 10GB 7.2mbps.

    Airtel is one of the best mobile operator in Indian market. The Airtel 3G postpaid plans in Gujarat are also very awesome as like in the other states of India. In Airtel, we can recharge according to our need from online sites of recharge.
