Airtel is offering bonus data up to 1000GB or nearly 1TB with a validity of six months to its broadband subscribers. The second largest telecom operator in the country already offers perks like free Netflix and Amazon Prime subscription to its broadband users and with the additional data offer, the company is trying to ensure that customers do not switch camps when Reliance JioGigaFiber becomes commercially available in India. Ahead of its launch, some speed tests have shown that JioGigaFiber offers the fastest download speed in the country and this alone could force broadband users to switch to Jio’s offering this year.
The new 1000GB additional data from Airtel is valid for a period of six months and can be used on top of data benefit offered with your existing broadband plan. The offer was initially valid only till March 31, 2019, but the company has expanded the benefit further without any expiry date. So, if you buy Airtel V-Fiber broadband plans then you will be eligible for additional data benefit of 1000GB. To note, Airtel’s V-Fiber plans start at Rs 399 in some cities, and goes as high as Rs 2,199, where customers get 300Mbps data speed.
