Airtel launches 4G LTE services in Bengaluru, offers new top-up plans [update]

Airtel today announced it has launched its 4G LTE services in Bengaluru, which becomes the second city in the country after Kolkata to get a 4G network. Apart from the plans already announced in Kolkata, Airtel today announced a new plan that will offer users 30GB of data for Rs 2,999 a month. Users of both Rs 1,999 plan (18GB) and Rs 2,999 will get a cash back offer when they purchase either the multi-mode LTE modem (Rs 7,999) or the indoor CPE with Wi-Fi module (Rs 7,750).

Airtel will also offer 10 free movies for the first month and users can pay Rs 149 a month to watch unlimited movies. The carrier currently has a catalog of 35 movies and is promising to add more. It has also introduced ‘Smartbytes’ to add more data when the user has run out of the monthly data limit. However, Airtel is yet to offer details about top-up plans and charges.

UPDATE: Airtel has provided BGR India with some more details about its cash back and Smartbytes plans. Subscribers of Rs 1,999 postpaid plan will get a discount of Rs 333 every month for 24 months, while those on Rs 2,999 plan will get a discount of Rs 666 every month for 12 months to pay back the subscribers for their LTE dongle or indoor CPE with Wi-Fi module.

Users can now also top-up their accounts when they exhaust their monthly data quota. Here are all the data plans and top-up options.
