After unlimited voice calls and daily data, add-on packs are now getting some attention too. Reliance Jio was the first to introduce add-on data packs that would work on top of unlimited plans after the daily limit gets exhausted. Now, every other telecom operator is offering add-on packs, that too at competitive rates. Bharti Airtel is the latest to introduce two add-on packs priced at Rs 49 and Rs 193.

These plans are available in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, Delhi, Karnataka, and other circles, TelecomTalk reports. The Rs 49 pack offers 1GB data, which is valid throughout the validity of your existing plan. For instance, if you have done a refill of Rs 249 where you get 28 days validity and data of 2GB per day, you will get 1GB extra data on top. This data can be used after 2GB daily limit is crossed.

The second plan is priced at Rs 193, which offers 1GB daily on top of the existing unlimited plan. For instance, if you are on the Rs 249 plan with 2GB daily data, you get additional 1GB data with this add-on plan, which means you will get a total of 3GB daily high-speed data. The same is applicable on other plans too. Airtel also has one more pack priced at Rs 92, which comes with a validity of seven days, and offers 6GB 3G / 4G data in total.
